I recently upgraded to CDGS 2018 from X6. Although I like many of the features and upgrades, I am very disappointed in the stability of Corel Draw 2018. I find that it crashes almost every session in a seemingly random fashion, and I have not been able to determine a pattern yet. The instability is so bad that I often just use X6 to get through a job rather than deal with the hassles of repeated crashes in 2018. By comparison, X6 crashes occasionally, but in somewhat predictable ways (usually very large files, lots of complicated fills, etc).
I am running Windows 7/64 with 8 gb of ram, SSD primary drive, and everything is fully updated. I have no serious stability issues with any other application on this system.
I welcome any thoughts or suggestions from other users who have found solutions to this irritating problem.
Intel or AMD? AMD video?
Hi Signmonger, sorry to hear about the frustration you are experiencing. Additionally to the community (which often does yield fantastic and helpful results), you can contact Corel Support here: https://www.corel.com/en/support/?hptrack=mmsup
Thanks for you patience.
Hopeful to have your issue resolved,
My system is an AMD FX-4300 with AMD HD5800 video card. The system is usually quite stable, and as I mentioned I have no major issues with any other application on my system.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Good point Greg. I've opened a ticket. Thanks.
If you would, please come back to this thread to let us know how it turned out.
