I have been slowly working my way onto X7, and recently noticed this problem. I do a lot off map work and have a 2x2 setup of 4 monitors over which I could "stretch" my X6 Drawing window. It saves a lot of time by not having to scroll around as often when editing. I stretch a normal window to cover the 4 monitors, starting with the upper left corner down to the lower right. It works great. This also works in PhotoPaint, though I don't use it nearly as much.
Now that I have X7, I find that you can stretch a normal windows across 2 monitors (in fact, even 4 monitors) with no problem, BUT, you can only resize the window vertically to the extent of a single monitor.
This is clearly different from X6. Also, I find that if you use a desktop manager, you can aggregate individual monitors into a larger desktop, and in this environment you can resize Draw the full height of the virutal desktop.
I can use the nVidia Surround option, but that causes some other issues I would like to avoid.

Did you ever resolve this problem? I'm having the same problem with X8.

Instead of "stretching" one CorelDRAW window across multiple monitors, another approach is to open up additional windows for the same document (e.g., by using Window>New Window).
By dragging on the tab, you can "float" a window instead of having it docked to the main CorelDRAW window.
You can have multiple windows, arranged to suit your needs. This can be a good way to have one window showing "the whole thing", and other windows zoomed in close to work on details in specific parts of the drawing.
Actually Eskimo has good points but they don't really do what I was trying to accomplish--use an array of 4 monitors as a single workspace. I DID solve the problem, but through hardware. I bought a 4K 43" TV and use it now as a monitor. It works wonderfully. You can get these as cheaply as ~$200 as opposed to a 4K monitor which may cost 2-3 times that amount.
I like having four separate monitors for various reasons. Can you explain "aggregate individual monitors into a larger desktop"? I assume that this is something different than "Extend desktop to display" in Windows 10 because this still does not allow me to extend CorelDraw above the height of a single monitor.
Though this would word for older versions of CD, you cannot do it now. I was using a "wall" of 4 TVs, 2 by 2, arranged so that it would mimic a larger workspace. That required 4 monitors and multiple video cards. The solution of using a cheap 4K TV is the best solution I've found unless you part with the money to by a full-fledged 42"4K monitor.
