I am running Corel Draw 2019 on Windows 10 and have yet come across another mind-numbing issue. I am working in a file just fine, then I perform an action, such as import or transparency, and I get the spinney wheel of death. Go to Task manager and Corel is not responding. Sometimes it will eventually perform the action after an extended period of time (4-5 minuets) or nothing at all. Force quit. Save Auto backup of file when I reopen the program and then every action takes forever, if at all. This is very frustrating. Any insight would be most helpful. Thank you!
I am gonna say Congratulations, Corel! You have finally managed to beat Adobe by the # of shenanigans your software can produce. I have been true Corel user since like 1996 and I still am, but OMFG this latest version is THE WORST so far. So many bugs and crashes and other nonsenses. It is very annoying when I have to restart the program every 20 min or so. Just to name a few... working with raster images in wireframe mode = I want to kill myself; the workspace freezing and not refreshing issues have not been fixed since like 2017 version( I tried to work with Corel support on this... basically they do not know what is going on); no multi-core and multithreaded processor support... really Corel? Specs: AMD RYzen 7, 8GB RAM (I need more for multi-application workflow, but should be more than enough for Corel only), GTX 1060, SSD.
Last year version was way more stable. And yes, I am here just to rant because I cannot take this crap anymore... not for this kind of money.
You are right about that. I keep going back to CD5, it was the only one I didn't give away after updating. I got my money back on 2017, didn't try 2018 and now this has to be the worst and I can't get my money back. I waited too long thinking I needed more HD space and more RAM. So out of luck and there has been ZERO support even though I have been contacting them since May5th. I will contact them everyday if I have too. After I installed Win 10 my CD5 started crashing or really just "not responding" so I got this new version and it is doing the same thing. I just tried to delete and retype 5 letters and it took a good 3 minutes for the old text to delete and then another 3 minutes for the new text to show up. I also didn't realize that the new graph lines only show up on the paper not the desktop. Since I use this on the desktop so as not to mess with what I have already finish on my paper this is really annoying. I have to move everything onto the desk top and work on the paper then move it all back.I might be forced to use Adobe again. I still have my CC6.
I'm sorry Corel but I have similar awful problems with Coreldraw 2019. Big delays in opening, saving and closing files, frosts and crashes of the program. Nothing surprises me anymore, I'm a Coreldraw user from version 2 and I've seen everything. I check every day to see if there is any update patch and I visit the user forum to see if there are any answers. Nothing. I know the way; I will just wait patiently for one year until some of the main bugs are fixed. You will then have the new 2020 version ready, and it will start all over again.
Summed it up quite well!
