I have already tried various sites including coreldraw.com/forums, but can find no answers specific to my problem.
I have tried some of the suggestions elsewhere for smilar problems like holding down F8 when starting programme and I have even re-installed X3 from disc to no avail. I guess I will have to keep searching. I came on here vecause it's headed 'Corel User to User Web Board'. Now realise that in smaller letters it says Digital Media Products - sorry!
