My problem is that when i open some of the files in corel it takes a very long time to open i.e approx 7 to 10 mints even for file size of around 500 kb.
When we open any of the cdr files given by outsiders it opens up within 3 mints for a file size of around 60-70 Mb. Is their any setting in corel to reduce this time? or is their any other solution to this?
This is not the case for all the files, if we check some of our older files from backup it works fine. I have set the memory as 50% of RAM. I am working in Corel 11.0. (on PC platform) Also tried to format the harddisk & re installing the corel, still same problem is observed
Request all to give the solution
A couple of questions:
Do non corel files take a long time to open as well?
How many fonts are installed and active on the system?
Do your files have a lot of effects (transparency, shadows, fountain fills)?
If you set Corel to show wireframe view, do the files take as long?
Where on your system do your Corel files reside, a network drive? You mentioned you reformatted but you don't say where the files are stored.
Lastly, what virus scanning software do you have in place?
Thanks for reply
Non corel files does not take that much time, even we have tried corel files which are done in other's office opens up faster on our PC
We have aroun 400 to 450 fonts, but earlier we have used more than 550 fonts, but we have not experienced this problem. Enen though we tried uninstalling many fonts, still we were facing the same problem
Our files do contain some effects i.e. transparency, but we have faced problem even opening a vector file. file size of around 500kb
If we set corel to wireframe view it takes the same time
All the corel files are stored in same comp as well as on network drive - again their is no diffrenence if we open the file from local drive or from network drive
This is the most important point i see - as we had some virus earlier i.e. trojan horse that was cleaned by anti virus software quick heal, in addition we running a couple of antivirus on demo basis. i.e PANDA antivirus - beta version

Never use more that one antivirus at the same time. Panda is good for hunting virus, but is one of the worst antivirus since it use a lot of the free system resources, and cause several problems.
