I have both CDGS2018 and CDGS 2019 installed on the same computer. When I am on Coreldraw2018, and I try to edit a bitmap image it now opens Corel Photopaint 2019 instead of the 2018 version of photopaint like it used to. How or what can I do to change this so that when I am in Coreldraw2018, editing a bitmap image opens Photopaint 2018 not Photopiaint 2019? Would appreciate thoughts, tips, suggestions...
I am not ready to move up to CDGS2019 yet and give up my CDGS2018 altogether.
Usually, the latest installed application is the default progam.
You can associate CorelDRAW 2018 to PhotoPaint if you select any CPT file on Windows (under Program Files / Corel you will find some CPT files), right click / open with... but don't select any program. Instead this, go to "use other..." and on the following list choose CorelPhotoPaint 2018 and enable "use this program as default".
Thanks. What you are suggesting is associating a .cpt file to CorelPhotopaint2018. I am talking about editing a bitmap image from within Coreldraw2018 which you have imported. The image may be any file format, e.g. jpg, png,etc., imported into Coreldraw2018 that you may want to "edit" using the Photopaint features and then continue using in Coreldraw2018.
Run the install for 2018 when asked select repair.
This will set PP2018 as the default photo editor, it will also open PP2018 in CD2019.
Thanks for your suggestion. However, I only want the CD2018 to use PP2018. I want CD2019 TO USE PP2019 as its default photo editor. Any other settings that can be tweaked in CD2018 so effect is limited to this version?
No. It's a global setting in the registry that affects all CDGS installs.
