Hello, so i've been using CorelDRAW for the latest months, after a long time of not using older versions of it, so i've got the last version, and it seems to run pretty slow, and laggy on my system (i7 2600K 4,5GHz, 16GB of RAM)
I'm working with a couple of big files, and once the history list piles up a few hundreds of steps it gets insanely slow every time i pop it up, so it's basically impossible to work with the history tab permanently opened as i slows every action i do, even the lightest task takes 5-10 seconds from when i give the input to when it's completed.
I've investigated a bit and although the CPU usage stays pretty low during these events, the usage of one of the threads (my processor has 8 threads) spikes to 100, and stays above 90% for the entire duration of those 5-10 seconds, to then go back to 10-20% staying idle until i make another action, and it all repeats. So unless there's some option to change or some patch or something to apply, i'd say this is probably the LEAST multicore supporting piece of software i've ever used. Anyway i'm using the 64bit version as my system is 64bit and my hardware supports 64bit architecture.
Any idea on the matter?
Are you using Adobe "Type 1" fonts (.pfb & .pfm) in your cdr files?
Windows 10 current recent updates. I.e. 1803, 1903, 1909?
Do you have JUST CorelDraw 2019 (with update 3) installed. I.e. no older versions such as X7, X8, prior to v2017 that has new font manager,?
Yes do have some Adobe Type 1 fonts but the cdr file that was open at the time had only images no text.
I do have X8 installed with 2019.
