CorelDraw Graphics Suite 2018, Windows 7 Pro, Laptop PC
When I enter text I see this strange slanted purple box next to the cursor. See attachment. The text in the purple box is barely readable. If I click outside the purple box the text appears as it should. Problem is I can not edit the text as it either goes into the purple box or the program crashes.
I have tried clearing all cache systems. Even uninstalling and reinstalling the program.
Please, if you have any idea what I am doing wrong, let me know. I have used CorelDraw for many years and have never encountered this.
Does it still look like this if you switch to Pick tool, or is it only as long as the text is selected with the Text tool?Are the characters selected (highlighted) and if so, what happens when they are not?What happens if you add an outline to the text?Would it be possible to post the file so we can have a look at it?(CDR files are not accepted here so you must ZIP it first)
When I switch to the Pick tool, the text shows in the text box as it should.
When I select the text again with the Text tool, everything becomes highlighted, garbled and slanted.
When I put an outline on the text and select with the Text tool, the text is no longer garbled but remains highlighted and slanted.
I will try to post the file. New to this forum so bear with me.
All good questions, thanks.Crash Text.zip
Everything works fine here. No garbled, highlighted nor slanted text.Shot in the dark but, I would try updating my graphics' card drivers. Maybe Windows updated itself and it messed around with your drivers...
Sad to say but, you DO KNOW your version of Windows is, how should I put it... Outdated, right?As if your GPS wasn't updated. You still can find your way, but there are a lot new and changed roads out there...
Good thinking. I will look at updates.
Thanks for the advice. I'll post my findings.
Works as expected here as well.Maybe you have a corrupt font file (Arial Normal version 5.21)?What happens if you choose another font, is it the same thing?
I updated everything including the graphics card.
Still having the same problem.
Wondering if I can install the program on another computer. Maybe this laptop is too old. Bought it almost 5 years ago.
