Is there any way to stop the save disk icon from turning on even if I switch documents? It's really annoying and makes me wonder if I already saved or not and some documents are huge so it takes time to save them.
It must have something to do with how the document is monitored in terms of the 'dirtyiness' of it and some things are picked up and registered as a dirty doc when it really isn't. Anyone dirty?
Have you tried checking with a VBA macro to see if it reports that the document is dirty?
That's not a solution, but I'm curious whether there are ever times where that disagrees with the display of the "save" icon and/or the asterisk after the filename in the title bar.
I've pin-pointed that page-changing (moving from page to page) is causing the dirtieness. How can I fix this?
That's interesting. Its also not the case for me. Just tried it.
I believe the thread David Millisock was refering to above was this one I also read a while back:https://community.coreldraw.com/talk/coreldraw_graphics_suite_x7/f/coreldraw-x7/49753/do-you-want-to-save-after-no-changesIn there, someone talked about Callout Shapes being the culprit. If I remember, that wasn't the case for me. One reason being that the issue happens with me and I don't use Callout Shapes, but I did try to make it happen that way and it didn't. It always happens to me with documents I've done nothing with at all, except for zoom and pan. Undo Manager has no activity, yet I finish viewing and close the document... "Save changes?". From a user's end, I don't see how it could be fixed other than the Application.ActiveDocument.Close.
I nailed it. Well at least for this particular condition. Open the doc linked below. It's the page number that's a cause since the program reads the page view change as dirty. This page number is from the Layout/insert page number on all pages. This puts the page number on a master layer.
I tested this in X7 and the bug is not there. Weird I say.
Ah. I only have X7, so I wouldn't know about this instance of the bug then. Also, as version 17, I can't open version 21 - if you were even asking me in particular to open it, that is. I think Eskimo has a few different versions if I remember.

I tested in 2018 and it does not happen. Can anyone confirm this bug in 2019?
I've tried your document in 2019, and I am not seeing the "Save" button becoming enabled when I switch from another document to your document.
Do you have any macro stuff configured to run automatically triggered by GlobalMacroStorage or document event(s)?
As a quick check, you could try launching CorelDRAW with F9 held down to disable VBA.
