So I was in the middle of making a design and it was running slow, but that's to be expected with all the nodes and effects I was using with my set up. I was making a few changes as it was mostly done and then all of my Gaussian blur effects disappeared. I started to redo the effects thinking it was just a little glitch but it happened again and then I noticed that the Ggaussian blur effects were still there but it had copied the original object without the blur effect. But all of the gaussian blur effects were extremely difficult to interact with. They are very difficult to select to delete or move around.
I decided after a bunch of back and forth for like a half hour that I would just restart the program and reopen it to see it that would help with this issue. But now the file wont open. It doesnt say the file is corrupted but it's stuck with the processing bar fully green at the bottom of the UI and its not opening the file. The Back Up File acts in the same way and opening the file after a restart on two different computers and has the same results.
What's going on here? Do I have to start from scratch?
Can you post a link to download the file? I'm assuming that you're using 2019 with all the patches. I'll try and open the files renam save as to a 2019 file and send it back to you.
To me it seems that due to a lack of resources the file may have become corrupt.
I'm not sure of any patches tbh. I've just installed the program without any additional updates I believe. unless it updates when it installs. It was installed probably 6 months ago.
Heres a Link on Google Drive: PROBLEM FILES
hopefully that works. I included the back up just in case. Thanks!
These files say 2023, you posted in the 2019 area. What version did you use to create these files?
I'll work on this over the weekend.
They are names 2023 because I'm making them in the year 2023. I made them using Corel 2019. Thats the latest version of corel we have.
Thank you, just FYI 2019 is the only version since version 3 that I never used in production, it was that bad.
There may be patches for 2019. If I can open I'll get them into 2019 and save them as a 2019 file from 2019.
