I just discovered that X6 Draw and Paint 64 bit won't scan - the options are greyed out. I'm guessing this is because my Epson Twain Driver is 32 bit. Is there any chance this issue will be addressed in a service pack or update, and if so, can anyone guess at the timeline? I don't do that much scanning and if I get X6 I wouldn't want to keep X5 installed just on the off chance that I need to scan. Thanks.
Yes Corel will fix a solution for us later this year, until then though there is a solution out there already in this transition period until Corel come up with their solution in maybe a service pacvk or something. I read they will though.
The solution right now is a Macro. Well its actuall something called "User Control" a new feature with CorelDRAW X6, but for plain talk call it a Macro. Softbotz a great programmer company who loves CorelDRAW made the macro.
I actually use it myself and wrote about it on my blog http://stefanlindblad-english.blogspot.se/2012/03/scanning-coreldraw-x6-64-bit-macro-from.html
Thing is that many scanner manufacturers either havent supplied a 64 bit driver due to age of the model or like in Canons case where they got me buying a new scanner saying it was a 64 bit scanner, which it turned not to be. In my link attached I link to that blog article as well.
So we both addressed this issue on both our blogs! There you go, its a good product.
It saved me a lot of time today.
Thanks for the links. Reading the blogs I think that Corel could have addressed this issue before releasing X6. The lack of 64 bit twain drivers was obviously well known and a third party seemed to have knocked out a part-solution very quickly. For myself I've just realised I can use the built in scanner provided by Microsoft that came with Windows 7. I don't do enough scanning to make it imperative to scan directly into Draw. Cheers.
