I'm using Corel Draw X3, and just few days ago some of my cdr files take very very long time to open.
File with 4MB size take time about 15-20 minutes to open, and after it's open the copy and paste is having the same problem.
But some other files are just fine.
Could any body help to solve my problem? What's wrong with my cdr files?
This may be due to your anti-virus program scanning the file as it is being opened, or the file is on a network server, or possibly both.
If you have an anti-virus running on your system, try turning it off and then load a file that usually takes a long time to load. If you do not notice a difference in speed, then I would try resetting CorelDRAW back to its factory defaults (press and hold down F8 key while starting up Draw, then answer "Yes" to resetting to factory default.)
The file is on local computer, and I've tried to re-install the windows XP and the Corel Draw X3, but the problem still the same.
I don't think it's because of the antivirus, I'm using AVG 8 free. I've tried to open from the network or copy the file to other computer and open it, but problem is the same. There are about 8 Computer at our office with the corel Draw X3, some of them also experiencing the same problem.
The computer I used: C2Q Q6600, Mem 2GB, HD 250GB, VGA GF 8500GT 512MB
C2D E6300, Mem 1GB, HD 160GB, VGA GF 7300GT 256MB
And once again some other files with bigger size, 100MB - 300MB, is just fine (this will open approx 1 Minute).
Perhaps I can email the file to you? The file size is only 1MB. It's virus free, I've sent it also to one of this forum member.
network printer would cause such a problem.
there is a post to refer.
I've unplugged the network cable the problem is still the same.
Finally I reinstall the windows XP & the Corel Draw X3, without any other programs, but it still won't solve the problem.
I don't agree the problem because of the network printer, I think that the problem is quiet different.
So I would be very glad if I could send the file to you or anybody else at this forum.
if you get the problem at a certain file, it would be a matter relating color style.
you can solve the problem by saving the file to .CMX and loading it again.
