There is no such thing as a Draw file in ArtWorks. When you import a 
Draw file it is converted as normal ArtWorks objects. Once imported 
ArtWorks no longer knows that the shapes originated in Draw.

Yes, shapes with a line colour applied and a line width of 0 (meaning 
a single pixel width, not recommended for any serious work anyway) are 
not anti-aliased. You need to have a non-zero line width. The default 
in ArtWorks is 0.25pt. If you set the line width to 0 for a shape 
drawn in ArtWorks, it is not anti-aliased either.
