Support for CorelDRAW?
We will help you to connect your CorelDRAW with Hatch Embroidery. However, we cannot guarantee your version will integrate with Hatch Embroidery.
Support for the use of your CorelDRAW program will be directly with Corel. Hatch Embroidery cannot offer you this support.
Hatch Embroidery is NOT compatible with any Home or Student versions.
Hatch Embroidery 2 is not compatible with CorelDRAW x6, as this program is too old and is no longer supported by the Corel Corporation. Therefore we cannot support it.
