In Draw 2019, when I save a custom page size, the new size subsequently appears in the available page sizes list, but none of the page size's properties - height, width, or resolution - appears with it. So, the custom page size has the name I gave it, but retains the default page size's properties, which, of course, renders the saved page size useless. In Draw X8, a saved page's properties as well as its name are in effect immediately upon selection of the size. Any ideas?
[In case it matters, I have not imported any workspaces into Draw 2019. The few changes I've made have been made to the default workspace.]
I use custom pages all the time, it's one of the first things I set up - DL portrait, DL landscape, Business Card, Business Card with full bleed etc etc. They all save, they all work.
One thing I've found that cures a lot of the strange things (which we possibly initiate ourselves by playing with the new toy) is to do an installation repair. A few annoying little things went away after that. If you do it, don't forget to redo the patch as well.
Are you creating the custom page in the new document dialog? If not please describe how create the custom page.
Thanks for the feedback, David.
I've always created custom page sizes via the "Page Size" component of the Document Options dialog. (Layout/Document Options) After selecting the desired settings, I click the floppy disc-like Save icon, which produces a small dialog box which requests a name for the custom page. After inputting the new page's name, I click OK on the "Custom Page Type" and Document Options dialog boxes, which results in the new page's appearance on the available pages list, but without the page's custom settings.
That approach has always worked for me in previous editions of Draw. It doesn't work for me in Draw 2019.
I hope that's the information you're after, David.
Thanks for the feedback, Gordon.
I will add the repair+re-patch route to my list of available options.
Beckley, I'm not sure there is a right way to create custom pages, I was interested in how you did it. I use the new document dialog and save the preset there.
I'm more concerned that it's not giving you expected results.
May I share this with Corel?
