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.
No it was a Corel file that I created 100% in CorelDRAW. It was running FINE up until a few days ago when I had to reinstall it on my new computer.
Intersting. What happens when you import the AI file into Corel, then save it as a Corel file.
its not just this file, its a big bulk of them. Every time I move something, or open a file everything reloads. It's like everything on my page is always trying to refresh.
Any more ideas from anyone on what might be causing this? I work from home, so I'm pretty much out of commission until I get this figured out.
I've already opened up a support ticket too.
Are you comparing a file that you've fully ungrouped with a previous version of the file (on the previous computer) where the objects were mostly in groups?
For the operations you are describing, a group of objects takes a lot less time to select or deselect. Probably it processes a whole group at a time instead of single objects when ungrouped.
Another problem is if you have a texture constructed as a lot of individual lines or shapes, rather than being implemented as a texture. Though this is usually caused by importing material from PDF files created by other programs.
this is happening on several different files, not just one. They are all doing the problem like this link http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c2QV3ynPhO
the files are all flat vector Corel files with no special effects, gradients etc. plus if they were I figured that should not matter with this new upgraded system with plenty of RAM and good processor.
OK. I was expecting to see something with thousands of shapes being drawn one at a time in quick succession, not a small number of shapes and huge pauses between each one.
By the looks of it, the outlines draw fairly quickly and then it takes ages to fill each shape. I'm sure even a basic graphics card could do better than that.
Have you noticed a screen like this:
In windows 7, its at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools but might be different in windows 8.
I KNOW, im working with simple flat graphics here, it should not be loading like that!
my computer performace is the same rating as yours 5.9
Hello Judy; I see the 5.9 in the MS speed test and it's the same as Harry's, but your hold back is the Hard drive, Harry's is the video. 5.9 is a good score and a 7.9 is the best you can get. The hard drive is holding you back some compared to the rest of the computer. You could clean out the Temp dir. and look at how many fonts you have installed in Windows/Fonts. ( the less fonts there the faster Windows will run.) You do need some of the fonts for other programs, but you could put the fonts in a separate dir. and use Font Nav. to load the fonts that you want to use in Corel. You could add a SSD instead of the reg. hard drive, and being the computer is New it wouldn't be to much pain. You can slave the Windows to a new drive but I think it's best just to reinstall Windows and the other programs.
I have not used any macros, and I don't believe I have used color styles. Temp files are cleaned out and I have less than 400 fonts to use in Corel via font navigator.
When I was getting my computer built, I did ask the tech guy about the SSD drive, and he said with that it does run faster, but very slim chance of data recovery if there is a crash?
