I have been regularly upgrading my CorelDraw Suite for the past 15 years.
With CorelDraw versions 2018 and 2019 I have been experiencing a very frustrating delay when engaging the Text tool or manipulating text objects using the Pick tool.I did not and STILL do not have this issue with earlier versions of CorelDraw. I have X6, X8 and 2017 still installed on my machine so I have tested this. Working with text objects in these older versions is just as snappy as working with any other shape as has always been the case for me.When using versions 2018 and 2019 my screen pauses and I get about a 1.25 second delay after each and every one of the following occurrences:
So basically any time I enter Text tool mode.
But the REAL problem is I also get this same delay after each and every one of these occurrences:
I would describe the delay as a kind of screen refresh issue. Almost like working on a computer via RDP with a slow connection. The text object being manipulated invariably disappears during the delay (all other objects remain visible). When moving, scaling or rotating, the progress is not displayed smoothly and there is a large visual lag. The text object moves or scales in short delayed bursts - well behind the actual movement of the mouse.Interestingly there is no delay when typing or editing the actual text in Text tool mode.What's also interesting is when I first installed version 2019 it did not exhibit this problem so I was very pleased as I have been battling with this issue for some time in version 2018.However tonight after finally setting up my workspace in version 2019 - (excited by the prospect of not having to deal with this laggy text issue anymore) - I was confused and extremely frustrated to find it's started doing the same thing!
I have tried many searches to see if anyone else has experienced this and there's very little out there.Why is this happening with what I assume are supposed to be improved versions??
Any help would be appreciated - I'm at my wits end.
Keep us posted on your application performance please.
I will, but I don't expect any miraculous changes as it's been doing this since I first installed it earlier last year.
I'm having the same issue. I do tag layout files with hundreds of text objects and the performance is laggy as hell when moving large blocks of text around. I do not have a problem with large amounts of vectors. Even X4 outperforms 2019 hands-down. What gives? I have i7-6700k @ 4GHz with 16GB and Nvidia 1080ti
Besides the fact that v2019 and 2 updates later, v2019 is GARBAGE. It BOMBS incessantly without notice! It's just NOT useable.
Are you using Adobe Type 1 fonts? Are you using the latest version if Windows 10 which would obviously have the Fall Creators Update installed a good while back?
Here is something that may help you from another post of mine:
One thing I can suggest to look at maybe as a DEFINITE problem I have had since the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (WFCU) has really messed things up when using CorelDraw X7 and after (possibly prior versions also?)and Adobe Type1 fonts.
As of this update (WFCU), Type 1 fonts are NOT supported anymore like they used to. You can still use them, but you'll have nothing but problems. (it also affected Word and it's fonts).
Open a CorelDraw file that has Type 1 fonts (or a mix also with OpenType and TrueType) and it will be really slow when working in it.
Now take that same file and replace ALL the Type 1 font objects with a OpenType or TrueType equivalent (or any other font if you'd like for testing) and CorelDraw will work normally speedwise as it always has before, even the OLD CorelDraw versions. Typically when you zoom in and out, all the objects outside the artboard take a long time to redraw on the screen incrementally. Also when dragging and copying these Type 1 font objects using the default duplicate "+" key.
Apparently this slow down does not happen with the Adobe Products! i.e. Illustrator.
It was obviously NOT Corel's fault for this, but personally, after I first noticed this in X7, it STILL has not be rectified to counter-act the Type 1 problem in versions during or after this Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, even up to v2019 which I just verified still has the same problem still on different current up to date workstations and a Surface Pro 6 (i7)!
