My 2019 workspace has taken on a cream tint again. I had this problem when I first downloaded CD 2019 onto the PC, though not my laptop. The issue was only rectified with the kind intevention of David Millstock, who, after exhaustive inspection, established a missing colour profile. The workspace stayed white for several months and then quite suddenly, last week, it went cream again.
I haven't touched Colour Management or any other settings. 2018 continues to show white, as did previous versions, on the same machine.
When this happens it's usually an update that changed the video profile.
What do I do now? Attached are my 2019 colour management settings (document and default) plus the Missing Colur profile box. The settings seem to be as they were.
Thanks as always
It's not in the CorelDraw color management, it's the settings in the OS (are you on Windows 10?). You need to REMOVE the display(s) monitor profile, or make sure you have created a proper one to use.
Many thanks timd, but what's a "proper" profile ? Yes, I'm on Windows 10.
Until I'm back in touch with my brain in Windows you can try setting your display to sRGB. I thought I ask this earlier what monitor and display card?
A "proper" color profile file can be created by using a specialized calibration device (xrite etc) specific to your exact display. You can create profiles for your display, print media/ink/resolution/viewing conditions/scanner etc.
It gets complicated for the novice, but for now you can type color management in the settings search dialog in Windows 10. Look for the monitor/display profile and remove it and your display will be solid white again in CorelDraw.
As David mentioned, depending on your set up and what color profiles are set, an OS or even CorelDraw update may have changed things or brought back what you already fixed before.
Are you the guy I talked to on the phone and got fixed up. If I remember you had issues with the display in the print preview also and in print sometimes.
Many thanks - I'll try that. Query though - why are none of my other programs -including Cdr 2018 - being affected? I'm led to believe that 2019 is unusually unstable.
Yes that's me (in the UK) You were tremendously helpful. Have you had the knee op yet? Hope it all went well.
You won't be surprised when I say that Cdr 2019 is the biggest pain in the neck I've ever experienced.
All the best, Colin
