I do have problem with my newly installed CorelDraw X5. Before X5 we used Corel 12 in our company.
I have project file (150 MB) with lots of text, bitmaps, vectors - about 100 pages. File opens but I can't save it. I always get OUT OF MEMORY error. I even tried to divide this file into 2 smaller parts but still doesn't work.
What I noticed - Corel X5 after clean start (without opened project) takes about 80MB of RAM in task manager. When I open project usage changes from 80MB to 1,2GB. While saving it takes 1,6GB of RAM and it crashes.
To compare - Corel 12 and after opening same project file Corel 12 takes much less of memory - about 770MB and it works without problem.
Where from comes this memory usage difference? Any solutions?
Windows 7 - 32bit
4GB of RAM
Intel Core2Duo 2 x 3.0GHz
700GB free space on drive C:
Please help. I've read milion other posts about corel memory errors and noting workes for me :( I have no hope :(
Surely there seems to be some corrupt data that has saved with the V12 file. Check for unwanted color styles, views and unused but saved text / graphics styles. Remove unwanted data. you can remove color styles at one click only if you have installed the latest service pack. I also have seen this issue with some corrupted fonts used in the file.
Guys I've found problem and solution !!!! Damnnnnnnnn Im so happy :)
To the point - in my corel file there was single text line filled with white color (so it was invisible) and I didn't see it.
I noticed it while I changed my view to Wireframe. I don't know why but this text line was generating lots of memory usage and deleting it solved all my problems.
Summary - in my case in each my Corel file I worked on there was invisible white text which makes my PC crash. I don't know why and to be honest I don't want to know why.. the bottom line is now it works fine.
Maybe my problem will help someone :)
