    I've been using Corel for a long time, but I can't figure this one out. All of a sudden I can't change fonts from the font tool bar. With the pick tool selected, I used to be able to click the drop down menu and select a font.
    Now the font won't change unless I click the blue F in the tool bar to format text. Nothing I do in the Tools>Options>Text makes any difference. What’s up with that?

    what version you got? if its 9 that one was full of wierd things. how many fonts you got loaded? othere then those you might try a defrag, if not reinstall corel.

    If you don't want to reload Corel you could try deleting the coreldrw.ini file. Make a backup of it first in case this doesn't work. If the problem goes away, the ini file was corrupt. The only problem is you will lose some of your presets, but you probably would anyway with a reinstall.

    If the problem persists, you can restore the ini file and look at other options, but usually flaky behavior on Mac/PC programs can often be fixed by deleting preference files.

    You could try holding down the f8 key and launch
    corel. a dialog box will appear and will ask you if you
    want to overwrite current work space with factory default.

    You only lose your personalized work space settings.

    This can correct some problems with Corel
