Based on feedback from quite a few other Coreldraw users I believe I've confirmed the existence of a DXF export bug in v2017 (as well as X7 and X8).
This bug only seems to happen with DXF export and disabling layers. The object on the layer which has export disabled, still exports.
Is it possible to get around this problem with a VBA macro ?
Much appreciated Eskimo.
Well, I'm both impressed and incredibly frustrated with "Support". They seem to be completely ignoring what I've told them about the evidence I've gathered from other users, that pretty much proves this is a bug since X7.
I received another email yesterday. They did say, "Thank you for this information" but now they want to do a live connection to my PC to resolve the issue. I simply don't understand how they are thinking. I mean how do you fix a bug that is in the software itself by doing that. They could simply use their own install/PC to see for themselves and fix it in house, and bring out a patch.
Even if somehow they can fudge it my PC and get it working, why aren't they fixing the problem itself. Sounds to me like they are burying their head in the sand with this one. Maybe it's easier/cheaper to fudge something on one users PC than it is to repair the software and create a patch update.
In recent years, Corel has not been releasing a lot of updates or hotfixes.
I think that versions 2017 and 2018 only got one update each.
just keeping you posted.
I responded to support telling them I'm not interested in their "support" by having a live connection to my PC because this problem is clearly a bug across X7, X8, and 2017 (and 2019 ????) and there's no way they can fix a bug by screwing with my PC alone.
I told them to fix their software and bring out a patch, and asked them to let me know if they will or won't do that.
It's extremely frustrating telling "support" something so obvious when you've gave them all the evidence they need.
They've replied and simply said my case has gone to the advanced level of support and I should hear back from them.
To be continued......................................(I hope)
