I am not able to get memory usage option in x5.
Is this option is available to in it are not.
In reply to Jised:
Windows always allocates all the available memory this has been a part of the OS since Vista
In reply to safia:
safiaEarlier Corel versions had it Jised. With Coreldraw X3, it was under Tools>Customization>Memory.
Older versions of Windows allows to manage memory, but that feature is no longer available, WIndows will manage RAM. This option was still present on X3 although it doesn't produce any effect, it was a legacy option for compatibility to older versions only.
If you are using Windows 32 bits, you can use up to 2 Gb for each program. Windows 64 has no RAM limit, it will use all the available memory
safiaI also looked for the option to change memory usage in X8 to reduce my crashes but no such luck. Maybe Corel already allocates 90% memory.
What you need is to increase teh Virtual Memory in order to have stability and avoid crashes. The Virtual Memory (the swap file) should be as big as possible since it's where WIndows, Corel and all program store temporary files.
In reply to Ariel:
As a second thought virtual memory should not be an issue as Windows manages that but I keep my hard drive with Windows on never more than about 45% full
