I get an error message that "Running CorelDraw not found" when I launch Cutting Master 2 from the Application Launcher.  The Registration Mark launcher doesn't work either.

I uninstalled my old version of CM2, and downloaded the newest, but still get the error message.  I pulled up my old X3 Draw, and CM2 still works with it. Did I miss something during the X5 installation?

Thanks for any help,

Pat

Pat,

 

The current release of Cutting Master 2 v1.60 does not support X5, and when we do release it, it will be downloadable from our website under support at www.graphtecamerica.com thank you,

Pat,

Do the plugins support CorelDraw X5? Many macros only run on certain versions. Check with the creator of the macro to see if/when they will be supporting X5.

Your program may copy a gms file to your GMS folder when installing. Since your program doesn't support X5 yet (most likely), it doesn't copy over the needed gms file to the X5 GMS folder. You can get the gms file from your X4 GMS directory and copy it over to your X5 GMS directory. Then test to see it it works.

Thanks guys.  John, you were right - the GMS files weren't in the X5 directory, but even after I copied them over I still get the same error message.  I think I have everything from X3 copied into X5, and Cut/Plot is in the VBA menu, but for some reason it isn't linked with X5.

Maybe a Cutting Master support issue as Frank suggested.

Hi.

It most likely is. You may need a new version for it to work with x5.

 

You can still try though.

Make sure you restart x5 so you see the gms file. Drag it to a menu or assign a shortcut key.

Start your cm program in x3. While it's running, test in x5 by clicking the macro shortcut you created.

Also try drag and drop from corelx5 to cm.

If you can get it to work that would be great.

Have you folks checked out the Macro Manager docker yet?

Oh, yeah! That is one great docker, for those that have a collection of macros.....I found that the macros that I do not use everyday, and do not keep on a personal tool-bar, are easily found and executed from the docker...

It was a must do kinda thing, macros these days have become the very important pillar of coreldraw, and corel had to respond to the services of the macro authors are providing to coreldraw. So it's a great way forward and it's just a beginning of the good support for using macros.

Yeah the docker is great.

John, thanks for the screen shot - it was really helpful. Now here's a funny thing: the CM cutplotloader is in the menu list in the docker, but when I go to the Customization>Commands>Macro menu it doesn't show up.  It won't let me drag & drop or copy & paste from the docker to the menu list.  So I'm figuring that I've missed a linking-up step somewhere.

Also there are 2 macros for Create Color Swatch & 2 for Page Number so that must be a duplication from the Global Macros files I copied put of X3 and into X5...but no CutPlot.

Oh, and relative to Hugh's point, the CutPlot will not launch from the docker, but the others will

The Macro Manager loads a macro once per session. So if you need to use that macro again you'll need to reload that particular macro into the current session.

That particular macro that's not launching may need to be revised to work with X5.

I've been busy lately and haven't had a chance to mess with x5 much. The docker sounds cool. If the gms is in the docker I would think it would show up in the customize commands area.

Can you activate it from the docker? What else can you do with the docker?

From the New Macro Manager, You can load any directory with the GMS files in it. There's no need to have it in the traditional GMS folder. It great when you have alot of macros that do different things.

The Macro Manager also lets you record, edit, create, etc. your macros.

You'll just have to use X4 until that happens... what a bummer :(
