For a couple of weeks now, Coreldraw has been crashing (blinking out with no warning) whenever I attempt an OUTLIINE / LINE ART TRACE. The first time it happened I thought it was simply one of those things. but since then it's occurred every time. This is a facility I use a lot and have never experienced a problem before.
Have you tried clearing out you temp directory.
I windows explorer type %temp% in the address bar and delete the file in it, best to to a reboot just before doing it.
Yes, I've carried out all the usual fixes - F8, repair, etc and I regularly clear the temp files - but the issue persists.
Has this started after any Windows updates?
Quite possibly but not sure, though it wouldn't be the first time an unwanted Windows update gummed up the works.
I have noticed that the last 2 Window updates have made my pointers erratic but that seems to have subsided.
