Corel Draw 2019 keeps crashing - even when not in use !!!
Its open… nothing is happening and it crashes… crashes on printing… crashes on publiposting...crashes when writting….it just closes unexpectedly at any moment
I am almost wondering if having a prior version of CorelDraw i.e. X7 (old Font Navigator) or v2017 (new Font Manager) is causing some sort of conflict... specifically the font managers?
I have installed v2019 with update 3 on a system that used to have v2017, but uninstalled v2017 completely and used CCleaner to remove any extra stuff left behind. So not quite a virgin system, but v2019 only now. It hasn't been crashing like it was prior to update 3. Started the Font Manager over again to start fresh.
It may also have something to do with corel activation / trial programs in the background also when using a firewall to block communication.
And, no, hell no, I would never resort to creating a NEW Windows 10 Pro user account and starting over with EVERYTHING. (one of Corel's suggestions).
Thanks a lot for your response! Indeed I do have previous versions. Will uninstal previous versions of font manager first.
Thanks again !
I use both FontNavigator (from X7) and FontManager, and there's not any conflict (of course, each version has different features, but that doesn't cause crashes or errors).
An important point, from my personal point of view, is to store all fonts on a separate folder. I use a folder under C:\Letras and sub folders in alphabetical order. What is the difference? that if you let FontManager constantly monitor the entire disk, the program becomes slower. And since there are folders that change very frequently (system folders, for example) or from which content (temporary folders) is deleted, the program may collapse. Tell him to look in a folder, and only in that folder greatly simplifies things and prevents errors. That, added to a Virtual Memory as large as possible (and not managed by Windows) are essential to maintain the stability of the program
