I've used various older versions of Coreldraw over the years, but have recently installed 2019. I've noticed that the guideline positions in the docker list are shown as their position on the page rather than their scaled position. For example:
This is different to the previous Coreldraw versions I've used, which all showed the scaled value.
Is it possible to show the guideline values using the page scale in the same way older versions of Coreldraw did?
I do not know of a way to get them to display correctly at scale in the docker.
They can be seen - and set - at scale in Document Options:
Those same guidelines in the docker look like this (the scale is 1:12):
Which version are you coming from?
personally I never use the drawing scaling as the drawing area is big enough for me to draw at real world size (up to 10m for me). What real world sizes do you need?
Apologies for the delay replying. I came from X3 and have used versions going back to v3, which is showing my age
I'm working on a drawing around 40m x 20m at the moment, but it hadn't occurred to me to change the page size, so thanks for this suggestion. It does fit the max size (just) so I think this is a best approach, although I still think that the guidelines should show to scale in the docker. I have to say I'm finding other "bugs" with this version so overall I'm not impressed, but X3 doesn't work on Window 10 so it was time to upgrade.

I agree. The guidelines docker is basically a good idea, but this is one of the ways in which it feels "unfinished".
I wrote a macro for managing guidelines, and it takes WorldScale into account when displaying/setting the positions.

Yes, always good to upgrade... but what you and many did not know... is to upgrade for the worse. : /
Corel should have had all these things fixed at least half through the release... year almost over, 3 lousy updates, and still MAJOR BUGS. That's called "TAKE YOUR MONEY AND RUN! YOU'RE STUCK WITH IT!" "OH 2020 UP NEXT? SORRY, PAY UP! AND MAYBE WE WILL FIX THINGS, BUT MAYBE NOT.... BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS KEEP HOPING!"
