Sometime during the past month or two, the speed of cutting and pasting, as well as saving a drawing in CorelDraw X5 has drastically slowed down. Can anyone help? Could it be a Windows issue and not a Corel issue? I have plenty of RAM and I've defragged. Is there something else I should look at?
I'm familiar with the F8 default settings fix, but I hate to do it because it takes so long to get the settings back where I like them. I use Corel every day for work, and it is like the inside of my brain - don't want to mess with it! ;-)
Any help would be appreciated!
Hello jjello; You can try cleaning out your temp files. Go the the Windows start menu and in the "Search" box type in %temp% and press the enter key, select all the files that are found and delete. ( It is best to do this at a fresh boot with no programs running.).
I would check following (Windows – Dockers):
• graphic and text styles – too much styles slow work down
• view manager – too much views slow work down
• symbol manager – purge off unused symbols if there are any
I hope you don’t mind me chiming in on such an old thread, but I’m pulling my hair out with this problem of CorelDraw (X7) being slow with Copy/Paste/Save, and Google brought me to this. I recently discovered that my Canon TS5230 printer wasn’t working, so attempted to download the (newer?) driver for it. In short, the driver will not install no matter how many times I try. I will get either a spooler stopped error, or just an “Installation Failed” error at the end of the installation. I have tried all of the various fixes I’ve found online, and nothing works. I moved the printer to my wife’s computer, downloaded the driver and it works fine. I have tried to assign PDF as my printer in order to hopefully solve the slowness issue, but have discovered that ALL of the potential printers are greyed-out, not available. How the hell do I fix this???
Printing by wifi or hardwired such as usb connection? Windows 7 or Windows 10?
