I've had my default font set to Adobe Garamond Pro for years. Every upgrade I reset my default font to Adobe Garamond Pro. This morning I open a new document and the default font is Avant Garde. I have been trying to reset the default and as soon as I make any selection of anty font, the selection returns to Arial--not Avant Garde and not the font I am selecting. The only way I am able to change a font is after I've typed something (artistic or paragraph) I have to select the text by inserting the cursor and highlighting it.
1) I've tried rebooting,
2) Changing the default via styles
3) Changing the default via the text tool with nothing selected and with closing all documents and starting a new one without putting the cursor on the page
4) Deactivating the fonts and reactivating them, both through the OS and through Corel font manager
5) I've tried OT fonts and TT fonts
6) I've tried dozens of different fonts
7) Everything works in Illustrator.
8) Once I try to change the font from Avant Garde to something else, it switches to Arial and then I can't even reset it to Avant Garde without closing Corel and reopening it
What gives? Any ideas? This is making me crazy.
Weird, Sharon.Try rebuilding your font database.Start Corel Font Manager while holding F8, and choose to rebuild.Not that I think it helps but it may be worth a try.
FWIW, I'm now having a hard time getting the defaults to stick myself.I want the Graphics outline default to be 0,15 mm, but whenever I restart Draw 2019, it reverts to "pt", instead of "mm", no matter what I do and where I try to save.Or maybe I manged to make it stick now? Looks good. Wonder what happens after a reboot? I decided to give 2019 a fair chance a couple of days ago, now that we do have a third update, but it is still more or less impossible to work with it. Sad.I have skipped versions before because of bugs and unpredictable behavior (talking years back, like version 6 and 10), but 2019 must be one of the the worst versions ever.
I missed versions 4,6,8,10,11,X4,X6,X8,2017 and 2019. My go to for reliability is X7. I use 2018 mostly now and put up with its foibles (mostly clones bugs) mainly because I like the node and path colouring.
2019 I have no intention of using. I cannot get at the guidelines setup quickly enough. Corel needs to fulfil its promise and return to the Guidelines Docker and make it fit for purpose.

GOT THAT RIGHT! AND SAID FROM ONE OF THE BEST MOST HELPFUL USER HERE!!!!
YOU MIGHT WANT TO LISTEN COREL! YOU CAN UPSET ME AND I KNOW YOU REALLY DON'T CARE, BUT HEARING THIS FROM SOMEONE LIKE RONNY, YOU REALLY NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT ALL OF THIS!
LET'S GET IT IN GEAR COREL! PITIFUL, SERIOUSLY PITIFUL. COREL HAS RUN CORELDRAW INTO THE GROUND.
In case anyone cares, my default outline is now back to "pt" instead of "mm". Wonder where this setting is stored (or not stored actually)?
