CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: 64 Bit Print Merge

Jun 22, 2013

I have to make print merge firelds in CDX6.

The problem is that I have not Excel on my PC. Only Open office. I create a csv file but Open Office asks me every time what the Field and Text delimiter have to be - for the Field "," ";" ":" "tab" or "space" and for the Text " or '. After that it asks me to check or not few check boxes. See the picture below.

I tryed few combinations but the same result - Failed to save print merge data!

I dont know what to chek but the biggest problem is that I tryed to save a txt tab delimited on other computer with excel and when I try to print merge after loading the txt file Corel says Failed to save print merge data.

I saw that we can Print merge directly from xls files but I cant find that option in ODCB Data Source. Weird! because I have to do 1100 badjes with different merge fields like country, name, code etc... and if I start to make them by hand it will be forever!

I have just ugraded 4 computers to X5 (one w7, 3 with XP) and are having a lot of problems with the application crashing or hanging. Applies to all computers.

Now look at my attached file, the first page stays different size.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3 :: Print Merge With Formatting Options

Dec 5, 2012

I am using CorelDraw to create price labels for my store.  When I merge in the price field for an item I want it to show on the label with the cents in superscript as opposed to using a decimal and full sized cents text.  Is this possible in any version of CorelDraw using the print merge feature?

Keep in mind that I also have the price field in an envelope so that the price takes up the full size allotted on the label whether the price is $1.99 or $999.99.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Printing Options Not Saved With Print Merge?

Nov 23, 2012

Whenever I perform a PrintMerge the print dialog and its options are reset everytime I leave the print dialog.

Usually you hit print set parameters and hit apply, you now can cancel the dialog and hit print again, your previous settings should still be there. Same goes if you actually print and want to repeat the print process, as long as you dont close the document. This works for normal printing but fails with print merge.

Every time I close the dialog (not the document) all the settings are back to default. This did not happen in X5 and is very annoying since it resets to default even if you actually hit print, forcing you to set the parameters every time.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Print Merge NOT Recognizing Numeric Field From Excel File

Jun 1, 2012

I am having an issue with X6's print merge not recognizing a properly formatted numeric filed from my Excel spreadsheet.  My first issue was that Corel was adding a decimal point after my numbers. This was when they were still formatted as text fields.  (which i still don't understand why, since they were just TEXT fileds) 

I know that the fields need to be "numeric" fields. 

FYI i have ALREADY COMPLETED MY TASK by using an "added" numeric filed that i added IN CorelDraw and then used the "Numeric Field Options" at the bottom of the page to get my number sequence.

However, that is not my question.... my question is: How do i get corel to RECOGNIZE a numeric field AS a numeric field in the first place.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Print Merge Large Files Without Crashing Or Having To Break It Into Digestible Bits

Aug 3, 2011

Just a guess but with 64 bit Coreldraw maybe we would be able to Print Merge large files without crashing or having to break it into digestible bits.

Do vector conversion of complex images.Use Coreldraw like a publishing program,  - kick Indesign

Computer memory is no longer the issue - 32 bit computer programs are.Until then I will stay with X4. run in Windows 7, 64 bit with 12 Gigs RAM.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Print Merge Documents - Many To One Relationships To Flow From Page To Page

Feb 10, 2013

Use merge for standard things like labels.Have a large ongoing project which requires

Lots of Excel data - eg: 6685.excel example.tifcolumns x AZrows x 300 upwards

All rows required to create a book of running information.

If I use a label type approach some rows  have less data making the layout uneven (unsuitable for the project)

Is there a way to merge with a fluid result ?

Ie row one takes up 2 lines Row 2 takes up 5 lines Row 3 takes up 1 line etc

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: How To Merge Layers

Mar 14, 2011

so, for some reason when i choose the body of this cow i drew to fill, it fills its hind leg, and stubbornly refuses to fill the body at all. i have tried all the fill tools to get this too work. i figure if i flatten the image the fill tool will work a bit better. 

there is no such thing as flattening the image or merging layers in the help section and the info online hasn't been so great. How do you merge layers?

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Text Constraints When Using Merge

Oct 2, 2012

Using x4.  I am looking to merge a list of names into a matrix and maintain text constraints.  I want all the names to fit into a certain space (ex. 1.5" long) and to maintain a certain character height (ex. .25" high).  So my output should be no longer than 1.5" and all should have .25" high characters on a single line.  I am able to setup the template and lock the fields, but during the merge everything gets messed up.  All x, y positions, text length and text height have to be manually reentered for each name.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Merge To New Document - Result Is Not Text?

Jul 19, 2012

I need to make a bunch of barcode tags for a client. I know CorelDraw isn't the best tool for this, but it's what I have and this is a one-time job.

To partially automate the process, I'm trying to use print merge to make the parts of the tags that aren't barcode, but I include the text that belongs in the barcode on the page. The print merge works correctly, I get what I expect. The next step would be to cut the barcode text, choose Insert Barcode, and then paste the barcode text into the barcode dialog.

Except, when trying to paste the text intended for the barcode I discovered that I was actually copying the <var1> field--not the text. I verified this by copying the "text" from the print merge document and then pasting back into the same document--what I got from the paste was not the expected text, but <var1>.

Since the barcode type I was using does not support the "<" character, it gave me an "invalid character" error.

My attempted solution was to publish to a PDF file and then import into a new document. This worked except for some reason CorelDraw makes a new layer named, inexplicably, "Layer 1" (there's a "Layer 1" by default, why make a second layer with the same name?) BUT when the import is done the new layer is NOT chosen in Object Manager, the original "Layer 1" is. Which means, when I go to copy the text and insert the barcode it ends up UNDER the other parts of the barcode tag which are on the NEW "Layer 1".

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Printing Merge Only With English Words

Apr 1, 2011

I was trying this Printing Merge many times. I noted that I could run the Printing Merge only with English Words because when I tried other languages such as Chinese and Khmer. Most of my words became error, so I really couldn't use it as needed. Is the Printing Merge used only with English? 

On the contrary, I used to use the Printing Merge in MS Word. It works with all languages. I want to use the Printing Merge in Coreldraw 12 beside English.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Print Merging Graphics

Nov 6, 2013

I have a client that I laser engrave parts with a variety of graphics, about 35 different designs that fit on 10 different parts and all the designs are different sizes on the parts.  I use a fixture that holds 40 parts, two rows of 20, for each type of part.  I have a master file for each part that contains a page with each graphic laid out as in the fixture so that I can simply go to the page and select the graphic in the right position for the fixture and paste it into a "lasering" file.  The lasering file is just as many pages as I need to run the order and is much smaller than the master file.

That works fine now and is actually pretty quick and easy to setup, but I just found out that they will be adding about 35-40 designs a month.  That will make the master file huge and very cumbersome to manage, not to mention the order sheet (spreadsheet) will get huge in no time at all.  I can envision it becoming a nightmare to manage and mistakes will be frequent due to the sheer size of the files.

What I would like to do is have a spreadsheet with the graphic and a quantity and merge that into the lasering file instead of doing it manually.  I am very familiar with merging data but I don't know if it's possible to merge a graphic from a database or somehow import the graphic into corel.

CorelDRAW X5 :: Save A Print Merge File With Merge Data Field

Feb 26, 2013

Why cant I save a cdr job with all the merge fields setup so that next time I open the file I can go straight to 'merge to new document'.

So Ive set up a 10 to view raffle tickets job.  Inserted 20 numerical merge fields, positioned, resized, applied font size color alignment etc etc etc.. Takes ages.....  So then merge to a new document, works nice and I can save it fine. 

There are a hundred reasons why i may have to close the 'master' merge file before the job has been successfully printed.  It may be a repeat print job.

Any which way I really dont get why the live merge data  fields are lost on closing the file.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 12 :: Can't Print On A6 Paper

Jul 13, 2012

I'm trying to print a flier on A6 paper on an HP CP1515n. I set the paper size in Corel 12 to A6, then set the paper size on the printer to A6. The paper feeds through very nicely - with nothing on it.

It works fine printing from MS Word so I am placing the paper correctly.

Using XP Home Edition SP 3.

I am currently printing on A4, then cutting into 4. I have found a cheap source of A6 paper but can't get my fliers to print.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Project For Print And Web

Oct 10, 2012

I want to start a project on Corel which will be initially printed. So I will start with the basic Cmyk template given from the window that pops up and make sure that the Color Managements is set correctly for printing settings.

My question now lies: What should I do if the same project has to be uploaded on the web too? What I would do is:

1. Create a new project selecting the RBG template given from the window that pops up.

2. Paste the project

3. Convert the colors to RGB

4. Set the Color management to RGB settings.

5. Export.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X6 :: Using 98% CPU When Idle In Print Preview

Jun 29, 2012

I'm currently working on an XP 32 bit system with AMD Athlon 64 3200+

CorelDraw is displaying a print preview but is otherwise completely idle. It has finished displaying the preview, so it is just waiting for user action but has nothing else to do.

Photopaint in another window was running extruciatingly slow so I checked task manager. CorelDraw.exe was showing to be using 98% of the CPU.

On further investigation, this happens only when the print preview is on the screen. I close the print preview, return to CorelDraw design screen and CPU is 0% when idle. I do another print preview -- 98% CPU again.

I'll try it later on a quad core system, but it seems that print preview should not be hogging the CPU when idle waiting for operator action.
