CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X4 :: Crashing When Editing Data Merge Doc?

Aug 2, 2011

When I create my merge document, regardless of how many pages, I will need to make edits to some of the text. Corel will randomly crash when I try to edit the text. Every time. I have lots of work to do and have not the time to deal with this.

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 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 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 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!

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 X6 :: File Losing Text In Transmission

Jul 16, 2012


I am having an issue with CD X6. I opened a file created in X5 using the new X6 and it worked just fine. The problem is when I send the file to my image setter to image a plate, part of the text in the heading of what is to be printed is getting lost somewhere in transmission. When I view the file in the print preview in CD all the content is there, however, when I view the raster image at the rip station before imaging the plate I notice parts of the text in the heading is missing. I have attached an image of the raster file .

Now when I send the same file using X5 the image goes thru without any issues and all the content is secure. I created a new page in X6 and copied over the text that I am having trouble with and the same thing happens. I am attaching the CDX6 file with all the fonts used.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Dynamically Connect Text To Excel File?

Jun 21, 2011

I am building a big catalog for hundreds of products, and it would be a life savior if i could connect dynamically the (customized) text (fields) in the .cdr file to an external excel file data. For example smth like the text field "Title" to be taking its values from the column "Description" of the excel file, incrementally as each line of the excel file could represent a record.  This way also when the excel file changes, (because it will be probably like 10 more versions before it gets final), the content inside the corel draw file will change automatically as well.

Download sample corel file here :


 and sample excel file here :


How to accomplish smth like that or even faster / simpler ......

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 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 12 :: Converting CDR File To PDF Which Contains Objects / Text With Fountain Fills?

Jul 30, 2012

For some reason I am having issues converting a CDR file to PDF which contains objects/text with fountain fills.

I have looked at some previous posts detailing the same problem, have followed their remedies, i.e. "render complex fills as bitmaps" in the advanced tab in the PDF conversion pane. Despite these best efforts I am still having the problem of my black background; fixed in the "page layout" tab being corrupted, resulting in the background being the fountain fill once converted.

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 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.
