  • Corel X6

    I'll bet this will come as a wild surprise, but I've been using Corel X6 for the last four weeks and it is a complete lemon. Shocking I know.

    Apparently, it's JUST ON MY COMPUTERS, but I can't open 75% of the files done in X5 and most times can't open any files actually saved in X6. It's reduculous. It just crashes.

    It happens on all the computers at work, but my home computer runs it just fine. Figure that out.

    I have sent crash logs to Corel and they are looking into it, but in the meantime we're simply using X5...with all IT'S bugs...

    There are some crazy awesome new tools, but alas... I can't get the f'in thing to even run half the time.

    Just sayin, in case you were going to run out and buy it right away. Wait for SP1 at least.

    Still using Corel huh Key, I think my last version was X3. I kept getting Adobe suites free for reviewing and now I'm stuck with them LOL.

      HOw do you get the Adobe suites free for reviewing? I want in on that!!!

      Keyare, as for the Corel issues... It's been a while, but I remember in the older versions (3-6) I used to have problems where I'd be working, then Corel would crash. When I restarted, my ENTIRE FILE was lost (Actual file was still there, but was blank when I opened it). The "work around"/fix was there was some folder hidden in the Corel folder that holds the temp data. I had to figure out/find the one associated with that file - based off date/time - then delete it. That only worked about 55% of the time, but I had nothing to lose. And like I said, it's been so many years since I used it, I couldn't even tell you where to find the folder... Good luck tho!

        You just have to run a fairly popular and well established online graphic design magazine. About 3 months before CS4 came out they flew me and a bunch of other "journalists" to San Jose for 3 days and let us play around with it.

            I wish I got to play around with 'it' in San Jose.

            So, is this what the GDF is considered by the industry? An online graphic design magazine? Or is there another secret life you lead, oh Kooliness?

              No Bob, the GDF is considered a discussion forum.

                That explains the difficulties I have had in finding a centerfold.

                Thanks.

                    Hi,

                    I'm quite new with using programs such as Corel Draw. I was intended to draw some lines for a general two-dimensional physics diagram, but as soon as I applied new objects, the previous moved away (changed their shape). I don't know if which Options must be modified.

                    For a better imagination I enclosed a snapshot:

                    I would like to thank you in advance for your favourable response!

                    Simon

                      OK, I figured out, I used the connector instead of freehand tool.

                      Tnx anyway.

                          I am wondering if there is a setting or plug-in in Indesign or acrobat in which I can automatically place/show the Pantones I used in my design. Right now I have to draw out boxes and label the Pantones...

                          I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

                          If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?
                          If you are working with a crowdsource, let that be a lesson to you.

                          I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

                          1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
