I tried opening up a project in my CorelDraw x7 and it is loading very slow! I JUST bought a custom build computer with 16GB and fast processor, so it should not be doing this. I tried opening up the same project in illustrator and it loads just fine.
When I try and open in Corel, it loads every object and layer of object one at a time. When I try to move an object it loads everything on the screen one at a time again.
It would be very difficult to work on anything with this issue. Any ideas what is causing this? I'm thinking its a corel issue since it opens up fast in illustrator.
Hello Judy; If you just bought a Custom built computer for graphics, call them and tell them you want it set up for graphics, And tell them you Don't want any of the bull S products running on the computer at start up, stuff you want like antivirus, ect. are fine. A good CPU and mobo with 16 gig of ram should be really fast. As you can see I'm using a i5 2500K Intel on a ASRock mobo and it's the fastest thing I have made signs with. but they are old school now and newer better toys are out to build with. You can tell them that you talked to a NUT on the net that said it sounds like it's not set up right for graphics. And they can email me or call if they aren't sure how to set up a good graphics computer. Which Windows did you get??? I'm using 7 Utl.. If you want you can post a file you are having trouble with so we can take a look at it.

I really don't think its a computer thing. I specifically told them I needed it for graphics. Plus my same document opens up in illustrator just fine and fast.
My computer details are:
AMD A10-770K Radeon R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G 2.40 GHz
16 GB Ram
64 bit operating System
Radeon R7 Graphics...
as mentioned above I really cant show the file because of confidentially agreement , but I will tell you its a tabloid 2 page collection with about 18 graphics on each page, no gradients or special effects, etc..
Like I earlier mentioned it loads 1 object at a time, every time I move something on the page it loads the graphics one at a time again on the page. At the current state I cannot work on anything efficiently.

What is the actual File Size? Are these enormous images by chance?
they range in size from 325kb to 1495kb
There are so many possibilities...
The thing I don't understand it was loading fine and faster on my other computer, but my current computer is better, faster and brand new. So it should load really fast!!
Your computer is plenty powerful, no need to replace the ram or power supply.
I would however look at your video card drivers; AMD had some problems with older drivers that caused problems with graphic programs.
Here is a link to AMD driver updates.
okay here is a link to a screen video showing you just how slow a sample file is loading http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c2QV3ynPhO
the 1st part is loading in Corel. After loading I could not even click on an object, just froze and locked up on me. 2nd part shows me opening up the same file in illustrator and it opens up REALLY FAST.
What's going on?!
