I have not had any success with the "Find and Replace" tool. Is this a known issue? Is there anywhere you can go to see what has been reported and what has not, other than here in the forums?
I am unaware of any resource to allow users to see what issues have officially been reported to Corel.
I have seen other Community forum members post reports of Find and Replace "not working", but not with details that would allow someone to try to replicate the failure.
I find it sort of tedious to use for simple searches, but I haven't personally observed it to "not work at all".
I work as graphic designer in a print shop and need to convert colours and colour models on a daily basis. In CorelDRAW 2018 it seemed simplified and worked almost flawlessly. I can only get the odd colours to convert. If it involves any percentages or converting colour models- it doesn't work. It is extremely time consuming to go through each colour one by one and change/convert it.
It has been a while since I have posted to this forum. I was told that this is the place to report bugs and issues with CorelDRAW. Are there actual technical support reps that read these posts? I just hope this issue is made known and can be fixed in an update in the very near future:)
I have seen some posts here on the forum by Corel personnel.
If something is posted here, then I assume that there is also the possibility that one or more users involved in the beta program might see it and take an interest in it.
In either case, details to help someone reproduce the problem could be very important. If I were experiencing that type of problem, for example, then I might.
As Eskimo said, we couldn't provide information about internal information of Corel. Other users has posted about issues with Find&Replace (I'm not sure if the shortcut Ctrl+F doesn't work or the new Find&Replace docker doesn't open at all even manually). And yes, some people of the Corel staff and some beta-testers read this forum (and other forums) and receive information, although this is just an users forum, not the "report bugs and issues" section.
Anyway, the more information you could provide, better chance to identify and fix the issue.
The first point is to confirm that Find&Replace works, not only for me, also you can see it on another posts, such as:
For this reason is very important to collect all information as possible. For example, it could be relative to the operating system (such as "it works under Wndows 10 but it doesn't work under Windows 7").
Usually an screen capture or record could helps. Of course, if the feature doesn't works at all there's nothing to capture... anyway some data could helps to detect the failure (nobody doubt that you have the issue, of course). For example, are you using a custom workspace? have you tried with default settings (F8 while the program starts) or using a different workspace? That was just a sample, there's a lot of possible reasons or test to do
For some reason I can't upload my working file directly so I have provided a link below.
Basically I'm trying to Find and Replace >>> Replace Objects >>> Color >>> Find Fills (PMS Process Blue C)>>> Replace Color (PMS 300) >>> Replace All. I even tried Replacing Objects >>> Color model or palette >>> Find Fills (Any color model or palette) >>> Replace with: Grayscale >>> Replace All. Nothing works. Even the Pantone percentages cannot be change with find and replace outlines. I seem to get "No objects found" every time.
I work on Windows 10 PC with the latest version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2019.
