HELP! Corel Draw starts fine on my computer, but when I open a file it takes 2 minutes. Then successive files open just fine. Any idea? I am running Windows 10 and I have a brand new laptop.
Is the lag related to the one specific file you're opening first? Or do you get the lag no matter what the first file opened might be? I'm asking to try to narrow it down to either an issue related to a specific file versus the CorelDRAW application.Usually I see some considerably lag when launching CorelDRAW the first time after a computer has been turned on and booted. On one aging desktop PC I use that will soon be replaced CorelDRAW 2021 can take up to 3 minutes to launch in that scenario. It doesn't take nearly as long if the program is re-launched in the same work day.CorelDRAW files can take a long time opening if they have active text objects that requires Corel's Font Manager to load fonts in the background. Some fonts can cause greater amounts of lag than others. Most CorelDRAW files without any active text objects will open much faster.
Hi, no, all files are slow opening, but only if they are the first that I open. If I close the software, then the first file that I try to open is slow again. There is no correlation with amount of text. And Corel is very fast launching, is then opening the file that is slow. I hope I am clear. I heard about Font Manager, I tried the suggester routine (F8 while launching and select both options), but nothing really changed...
You say it's the first file? How about subsequent file launch speed?
After the first one everything goes smooth, very fast...
Interesting, can you list system and network details please, (wireless or wired)? Is this a laptop? Is it Windows Home or Pro?
Hi, it's a laptop, 11th gen Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 64 bit operating system, Windows 10 Pro, wireless.
Are you opening files across the network?
It may be a caching delay.
Is the hard drive an SSD.
No network, local files...
