Just wondering is anyone else having this problem...
I create a multi-page document... for instance lets say a Mass Booklet.
When editing the document pages, some of the pages move out of sync, ie. page 6 moved to page 8, etc...Any suggestions? Designed a 44 page book today, emailed the customer the proof... 8 of the pages had moved page position.
For those of you having issues with pages jumping around: Try to avoid clicking page tabs that are near the ends of the page tab bar, i.e. next to (or partly hidden under) the page navigator field to the left or the scroll bar to the right.In my tests I was sometimes able to make pages move when clicking on these tabs.When clicking on a two digit page tab (10 or higher) the tab bar moves a little, and if we click near the end of the tab bar at the same time, the click instead becomes a drag, and the page tab jumps to a new position.Seems to be at least one reason why pages suddenly swap places.
That could be. I have done this. But the randomly moving pages are those, for me at least, are not even being worked on, or displayed in the tabs at the time. How I got my manual files set up is a "template". Things like warranty, inspection pages, weld directions don't change. They are pretty standard. The majority of pages I work on is only about 3-5 pages where I show the assembly of a product. I use the "Go To Page" window to go directly to the page I want, Page sorter view, and the arrows in the lower left of the window to navigate pages. If I use the tabs, it is only for those 3 to 10 pages the tabs displayed. The pages that move are the pages I don't work on. For example, I finish the images in the second to last page. I hit the arrow to take me to the first page. I use the arrows to go through the manual page by page, and the one I worked on is now the last. The last is now the third to last, and a form for visual inspection is switched with another. I didn't even touch those pages. Can I recreate, no. It happens at random. I've had no page moving issues with any previous Corel Version. I have been using Corel Draw since 2002.

I am not saying that you are doing this, but...
For me, clicking on the "go to next page" or "go to last page" when they are grayed out can cause an unintentional page move in some situations. That's from the "click becomes a drag" thing that Ronny described.
Even on pages you are not working on?

When I have seen that - by clicking on a grayed-out button - it acts as though I had clicked on the page tab that is behind that button.
If it is not a really fast click, then pressing the button down "picks up" the page tab. CorelDRAW slides the tabs around then, so releasing the button "drops" that page tab on a different page tab - which moves the page.
I'm not saying that is what is happening to you; just that I have seen it happen myself. I can avoid it by being careful not to click on a grayed-out button.
They have the new multipage functions screwd up so bad I'm not sure they can figure out what's wrong. I had a 90' wide by 45' high 16 page document that I wanted to reduce for PDF for proofing. I was set to not keep desktop items on layer, the malfunctions ranged from page order changing to defaults resetting.
Wow, this is "still" a problem? Something like this really should have been fixed already.
Yes this is one of those ones you just can't say enough bad about.
Any particular reason this is let go so long? Something as critical as this should be addressed as a HOT FIX ASAP like other developers do. Some bugs can be let go on for eons, but some really must not, especially when users are blue in the face over it and nothing but silence for months???
It's not like Corel is ignorant to the problem(s). Even if never brought up, but should have been caught with thorough testing before release. What is the problem, short staffed or something? It's just baffling. : /
