Has anyone else noticed the font list operated significantly slower in 2019 verses older versions? I am in X6 and can maneuver through my fonts exponentially faster than I can in this newer version of 2019. Same fonts, same machine. Consequently, I can work faster in X6 than I can in 2019...?
The system requirement for 2019 is not the same as X6, 2019 requires more power. Google Coreldraw 2019 requirements and Coreldraw X6 requirements.
Big changes from X6 to 2019, started in X8. There is a new font manager, it gives you access to use all fonts even those not installed. IMO a bad idea for those with limited system resources, large font archives and or networked font storage.
You can configure it to behave more like a standard font manager then it's ok, that configuration is done in Draw through the filters and other settings.
I have the best computer Lenovo sells. Brand new 2019. With upgrades. It's not a system requirements issue. I should have specified in my original post.
Can you expound on what configurations you're talking about? I am on a network with other artist using same fonts so we must all have access to a fairly large archive simultaneously. I have had bad luck in the past with their font manager. Seems to slow me down rather than speed me up. Perhaps I haven't given it it's fair shot. I'd prefer for my fonts list to just work like it did in X6 and 2017.

Yeah, we'd all prefer a lot of things... but seems this day and age, things just get worse instead of better and you pay for that downgrade on top of it.
Thing is, the processors get faster... so you'd think the software would function much faster too, not the other way around? But then again, if you're sharing fonts on a network, you're limited by that. Personally, I keep fonts on each of the workstations.
