I saw that someone had posted this two years ago, no answer. I only have this problem in CorelDraw, not in any other program I use. I created a booklet. I made many of the titles and lines Arial Bold. I keep having to go back and re-bold them after saving. It doesn't do it to an entire line, just parts. For instance if I bold "770-555-1234 • website.com" the phone number may revert but the other part stay bold. I have tried doing it from the tool bar and from the side panel / text edit. No difference.
Any suggestions? I read the ones from two years ago, no help.
Did you get any further on this? I have exactly the same issue. I believe its related to a bold version of the Arial font family but as you say no other program I use has this issue so is it just Corel....??.
I think its possible that Corel is maintaining its own separate cache of fonts which has multiple versions, become corrupt or something.
I am running X7, Win 10 on my work PC.
In trying to find a fix I installed various versions of Arial that I found on various PCs that we have. No joy at all. Restarted PC, cleared registry all sorts of stuff. Nothing worked.
I found an old PC running X5 so I created a file. This machine and/or version of corel does not have the same problem.
The file contained 2 separate lines of text, one in Arial regular and the other in Arial bold.
I copied this file to my main working PC with X7 and it opened with the fonts correctly bold in X7... hmmmm..
I opened an X7 file that I need Arial bold in (but keeps disappearing). I dragged the X5 file into this file and the X5 content stayed in bold - the X7 content stayed the same.
I saved the file (X7) and reopened. X5 content stayed in bold.
I change some of the X7 content to Arial bold and saved, closed, reopened and it was no longer bold but the X5 content was still bold.
The 2 different (X7 vs X5) Arial content bolds are visually exactly the same and the name is exactly the same in corel.
Corel MUST be maintaining 2 different versions of the font, in the same file!!! but with the same name.
I havent restarted my PC yet.. who knows maybe a cache will be cleared and I will loose the bold after a restart but Id loose this post so I may be back to update later : (.
I found some strange things whilst working ion this.
I had ghost versions of several of the Arial types. After all my deleting etc I am down to just a ghost version of Arial regular. I cannot delete it. If I do both get deleted and I loose Arial regular all together.
According to Font Navigator I have no Arial fonts all!!!.... just the Nova etc in the image below
restarted the PC and the bolds have stayed intact... cross fingers.
