I have several user-defined palettes. They have functioned without a problem for the past year and a half. Yesterday, I closed CorelDraw. When I reopened it, they were all empty. I tried closing them and reopening them, still empty. I deleted them, restarted Corel, opened them through the palette manager... they still open up totally empty. I suspected maybe the .xml file was corrupt, so I have the color palettes on another PC at work. I resaved the palettes on those PCs, emailed the .xml files, opened on this PC, same problem: totally empty. Corel-defined palettes open fine, but custom-defined palettes always open empty. Any ideas what's going on or how to fix this?
You can see in the screenshot below that it is (1) checked under Window > Color Palettes, (2) the eye is open under the Color Palette Manager, (3) the window where the colors SHOULD be is open, and (4) some Corel-defined palettes are open with no problems.
Issue persists. Happens every time I reopen CorelDraw. Any help appreciated!
Have you reset Coreldraw back to factory defaults?
Hold the F8 key down as CDR starts and agree to resetting, you will lose any customised workspace you have but it may fix you problem.
