Coreldraw file behaving strangely? small file size but takes too much time

Like the movie...rate it now

the file is behaving strangely

the file (even 4-5 MB & containing vector work only) takes 5-10 minutes to open !!

moreover, the basic commands – print, print preview, save, export, merge etc are disabled for this particular file.

publish to PDF makes a 0 kb file

even copy of a single line/circle etc. take eons

this problems remains same when opened on other coreldraw versions or on another computer.

everything is normal with other files on the same coreldraw, same system

So now all the files i work upon gets this problem

I guess there cud be something wrong with the file and not with the software.
the file is not corrupted as it opens on other computers too, but with the same problems, reinstalled coreldraw too.


The same problem already mentioned in the article mentioned below link

You might try saving as an EPS file (Encapsulated PostScript). This is the standard file type that’s been around from Adobe forever, and Illustrator knows how to open and use such files. I don’t know if CorelDraw can save as EPS, but it should since it is a standard, especially for vectors.

Is there any way you can ask the person who sent you that original CorelDraw file to save it as an EPS and resent it to you? (Unfortunately lots of times people have to educated about the fact that the program they use saves as a proprietary file type unless they do a SAVE AS and pick a more standard file type.)

Hope that helps.

  1. No no no…. I think it is not the problem with software…..

    Try to change the file name i mean save it as another file with another name.

    If u can’t do that just rename the file and try.

    If u can’t do that too… Then try re-installing the software.

    I am saying like this because i had a problem with photo shop like this.

    After a thorough trace out i found that the file stored in the hard-disk was corrupted.

    Especially i had that problem because of bad sectors in the hard-disk.
