Dear Collegues,

The text typed in MS-Word in some fonts particularly of Indian languages (for example, font 'Latha' of Tamil language), gets changed (spelling gets changed in a word) as soon as it is copied from MS-Word and Pasted into Corel Draw.

I have tried the help section of Corel, googled a lot, but found no solution.

Getting it re-typed directly in Corel in Corel-compatible font will take a lot of time and effort since the text (already typed in MS-Word) is quite voluminous.

Do you have any idea how to resolve this issue?

Is it possible to avoid that problem by changing the font in Word before converting to Corel?

Is it possible to add the font that was used to the collection of fonts used in Corel?

Microsoft has so many font/typefaces that it should be possible for you to use compatible fonts.

I had a problem with Adobe many years ago and received a CD-ROM with typefaces. You might be able to download special fonts from Microsoft.
