Text problem

I'm using Corel v11 on Windows XP, and am having a problem with text.  In artistic text mode, I can type and nothing appears - the cursor doesn't move, just flickers.  In paragraph mode, I can type, but I cannot change the font, size, centring etc., and the text is all "squished" into a single letter in the middle of the paragraph frame.
Any ideas? ponder

RE: Text problem

Try F8 at startup of Draw and accept the default workspace (same your own first if customised) I've not seen your specific issue but a worksoace reset can cure some odd behaviour.

RE: Text problem

Just back from a week off, so apologies for the late reply.  Thanks, Brushman, tried your suggestion but unfortunately it didn't work.  I've got a workaround of creating the text in Photoshop and importing it into Corel, which is not ideal but seems to be my only option.

RE: Text problem

RE: Text problem


when I printed. Some Pages are missed

You would probably do best to post that as a new question rather than a reply to an unrelated one.

Check that the objects which do not print are not on a separate layer which you might have accidentally applied the "non print" setting to.

If that's not the problem, try File : Publish to PDF which will prove whether or not the objects are going missing within Corel or within your printer -- and you may possibly be able to sidestep the problem by printing from the PDF.

I'd start by checking that you have installed both the Corel service packs and also obtain the latest driver for your graphics card from the appropriate manufacturer's web site.
