Windows XP home, Corel draw 12, Dell Inspiron Laptop. I have the latest version of the graphic card driver available installed.
Working on a file I lose the graphic upon which I am working. CorelDraw menus and page stay, the graphic just disappears. If I save the file and reopen it magically reappears.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Okay so I think I've narrowed it down to my touchpad. I could reliably reproduce the disappearing act if I scroll with the 'side scroll' feature. The hand tool seems to work fine though - I've made a keyboard shortcut (Alt-space like Indesign) for a one shot pan which works pretty well. If the issue does occur, I've also found a bit of a workaround - just choose 'new window' from the window menu and the graphics reappear. You have to close the offending window (at some stage), but at least you don't have to restart Corel. If you can live without some of the advanced features like browser gestures, a very old version of my synaptics touchpad driver didn't produce the problem with the disappearing graphics even when scrolling - let me know and I can send the driver through. Cheers jbng :-)
I ended up re-installing corel draw, and the problem has not resurfaced.
Hello! I have the same problem under Corel 12 and Corel X3. I've installed both under Vista, thought this was the problem, and then i've formatted my hdd and installed XP Sp2. I have a Toshiba Notebook with Ati Radeon X1200.
What mouse / mouse driver do you have... might sound unrelated, but I've had some strange behaviours with a trackpad which had the tendency of zooming to 10'000% with no reason. Updating the drivers for the mouse helped.
I have a TouchPad, but this happends eaven with the zoom buttons from the toolbar! Refresh won't work either. I can see the workspace, but if i select the arrow tool and click - drag to select i can't see the dotted square. I can also see the page margins, so i don't think it's a mouse problem...
Works great in Illustrator CS3, but you know... :)
