Sorry, no. The current limits are there for a reason. How would you 
print a file of the above dimensions?

It is highly unlikely that ArtWorks will ever be updated for import or 
export of any closed file formats, so there is no chance for CDR. AI 
and other proprietory EPS formats are unlikely, too. There are just 
too many of them - doing all of them would be impossible and picking 
one would not really help. We will struggle to keep up with open 
formats, so there is no way we will ever get beyond them.

I do realize that our import capabilities have been left behind. So, 
SVG import is a possibility and even PDF import might be possible.

> Export for later CDR

As above. Besides, later versions of CorelDraw (11) can import SVG, so 
what would be the advantage of having CDR export?

Finally an easy request: Added in 2005. :-) Have a look at the 
"Anchors" option in the Selector tool.
