When I start CorelDRAW 2021, the "Welcome screen" will not go away once I've either opened a document or clicked the plus sign for a New Document. The program will open a file, and I can see that it's open on the bar on the top left but I can't see anything on the screen other than the welcome screen. If I click the X for the welcome screen, the Welcome screen goes, - BUT, then I am left with a blank grey screen, even though the tab shows that my file is open on the information bar at the top - BUT! I cannot see anything on my work area other than a big grey nothingness and I cannot work with anything. Has this happened to anyone else please?
Turning off the X for welcome screen gets that to go away, but I still don't see my page once, just and only a big grey area. However, really strange... If I open a file, whilst I cannot see it on main work screen, if I go to “Print Preview”, I can see see it - and then, when I close print preview, my file is actually visible in the work are but frozen, I cannot do anything with - the only thing I can do is close down CorelDraw. This all means that I have CorelDraw that is simply unusable, it is nothing more than a picture on my screen that I can do nothing with. Does anyone know how to solve this please?
Have you tried to reset your workspace? If you close the application and relaunch it while holding down the F8 button on your keyboard, it will reset your workspace. You may lose any workspace customizations if you do this, however.
