Corel Draw X6 - Bugs

I want to collect here all bugs from CDX6.

After 5 minutes, I noticed that bug  with the barcode still exists - after I generate the PDF, black from barcode is composed of CMYK, not clean K-black. 

What I do wrong? or how I can fix that? Usually, I open the file in Corel X3, and I generate the PDF again from there.

LE:

In the following days, I will return with other bugs, if I discover them in working in typography.

 

Thanks!

  • It's not a bug, if you generate a barcode it will be an OLE object, allowing you to edit and change. If you use the "preserve pure black" option in Tools/Color management the barcode will output as black only. If you don't use this opton but anyway you want to output as only black, or change the color, you can cut (Ctrl+X) and Edit / paste special, choose "Metafile" The barcode now will be a group of objects, then you can ungroup, change colors, etc. so you can change to CMYK 100% black only. But, if you use the "preserve pure black" option enblaed, you don't need to change anything. That's the same of X3, X4 and X5

    @Ariel,

    I work with many bar codes, which are changed regularly. I can not make them all curves, and then generate them again, whenever they are modified.

    I want in the PDF, to have only barcode consisting from black, but this must not influenced the other colors of black, so that the remaining elements of K-100% must be overprint.

    I did set that you said, but nothing has changed!
    I said that is a bug, since it is a contentious issue in several places on the Internet, which has generated many complaints.

    Corel X3, makes the PDF correctly - all bar codes are K, and the remaining elementsare black overprint, so that the typographer, have clean CMY films.

    It is annoying, to open every time X3 when I have barcode.

    LE:

    @George, that is not a bug, that is a mosquito!

    I do several barcode each week and I don't have problems, the barcode is only 100% black when output, What settings do you use for generate the PDF?

    btw it seems a feature request, not a bug. Of course, the barcode change after X3 and sometimes is annoying the extra-step (cut/paste special) if you need to change the color (ie for use a Pantone color)  but I believe is not so difficult. At least is faster to do 2 commands than go to another version.

    I'll be damned.

    Did the same exact  thing. Now I am wondering why that didn't work for me Tongue Tied

  • In reply to Ariel:

    I am not able to open my X5 templates either. I can open the ones I created myself but nothing from the X5 extra content saved on my computer. I also cannot open the sample from the above posting.

    Extra content following with CorelDRAW X6 you probably only recieve when you pay for the software. I suggest the box version as it comes in a nice bundle similar to X5. With DVD and material on that DVD if I am not entirely misstaken.

    Templates from X5? How, what why? fill in the blanks to what is your workflow when doing it and what is the wrong/error? Part from that it didnt work. There might be something there you missed or to make it easier to report for Corel to understand what the issue is.

  • In reply to Stefan Lindblad:

    Hi again Stefan, there is no error. I olpen CD X6 click 'new from template'. It loads the templates window, thumbnails and all, yes, I see the thumbnails. Then I click on one, it attempts to open the cdt file (I see for a couple of seconds the upper left of the document screen see attachment) then the workspace goes grey and nothing loads.

    However, if I try to load a template that I created myself in X5, it loads just fine.
