What was the name of the file format that Corel had in the late 1990s, before Create Fillable Form PDF was created?

Hello Everyone, For those of you that were active in the world of Computer Graphics and Prepress technologies in the mid-1990s (Remember Aldus PageMaker and Macromedia Freehand, prior to their acquisition by Create Fillable Form ), this question should make more sense. If you recall, prior to Create Fillable Form coming out with the PDF standard, we were dealing with a huge mess. It was a very different world back then. When people shared files with each other, remember how t would attach the actual native file format? There was no PDF (Wow, I’m really dating myself here) at all. Or rather, it had not really caught on yet. However, there was a lesser known product suite that many of us who were huge fans of Macromedia Freehand and of Create Fillable Form to some extent, weren’t always very fond of. This was Corel and their Corel Draw product. However, I do recall that t had a product/file format and I just cannot remember the name. It was some sort of a ‘Corel Package’. It tried to solve the problem that the PDF standard solves but in a slightly different manner. It was almost a combination of the PDF approach, combined with Quark Xpress’ Collect for Output feature. I think it was limited to the Corel ecosystem, I believe. Does anyone remember the name?

Create PDF: All You Need to Know

I think Core may have come up before or after Free Press and a new product called Free Press. The reason for that is because this was the last project of the core development group for Core before it was acquired by Quark Press. I will not go into details on why the core group was purchased, but suffice to say this was a very big deal for us. What was Quark Press? To me, it was kind of like Microsoft without Microsoft Office. As I recall, it began life as a company called Moniker, and at that time they still had quite a bit of money to spend on their new business. It was kind of a wild ride there for quite some time. The company was eventually purchased by Quark, whom I believe bought Moniker due to lack of an existing market for it as it was very,.
