In my color separations in print preview the "use advanced settings" is disabled. Can anyone help me on this?

I have loaded cdr graphics suite 12 on my new laptop w/windows 7, and also on my old machine that I have loaded windows 7 on. Cannot register the program any more due to outdated version. problem exists on both computers.

There are other minor issues but this one I use regularly.

Hi.

Not a lot of good news for you.

With windows 7, you will run into many issues with cdr12 as I have found.

Run it in XP Mode inside your windows 7 or upgrade to atleast Draw X4.

Do you have a Postscript printer installed on your computer?

Running in XP mode, no postscript printer at this time. No RIP software, I am primarily doing spot colors until I get in more practice.

I second this question, but not just installed, selected?

Also, not all postscript printers will play nice. Make sure your drivers are updated. We run a Xante platemaker 4 that even x3 couldn't control from the driver but X5 runs it like a dream. I can change every setting now and I'm a little bit in love with it.

Edit:

Just saw your reply while I was typing. It won't work without a postscript printer. (and again, even then it may not actually work)

You will need to install some kind of postscript printer. OR please try to install PDF CREATOR software. It is available at Sourceforge.net

Please default your printer to PDF CREATOR. Now when you print from CorelDraw, this Advanced tool will be available.

thank you all for your help. The PDFCreator works and I now have access to the advanced settings. Thanks again. Don

I would like to know how to fix this problem as well. I've been using Corel X5 on my Windows 7 64-bit for several months. We recently added a computer to our graphics department and had to network our printers and suddenly we can't access the "Advanced" settings anymore. All we did was attach the printer to a print server and change the port it was located on. For a few days the "Advanced" settings were working on one computer but not the other. Today it stopped working on both. 

I tried installing that PDF Creator program but it didn't help. Plus it installed toolbars and other crap I had to remove. 

Has anyone else figured this out? 

 

Thanks!
