    I'm wondering why any page I set up in this version has it's center at 4.25 x 5.5, meaning the lower left corner is not 0,0 as it has been in every other version I've used. Has anyone else had this problem?

    That's a new one. At the CorelDRAW Community forums I've seen numerous complaints over how CorelDRAW 2019 handles multi-page documents. There appears to be a bug causing CorelDRAW 2019 to re-order pages into odd places. It doesn't seem to happen with short documents under 5 pages. But longer documents get affected by it, causing quite a bit of heartburn with users. It's yet another reason why Corel's "upgrades are ending" ploy seems really really rotten.

    It's just a setting in the Rulers dialog box under Page Layout (Origin). Then once you have it back to 0,0 make it your default.

    Thanks, but I have it at 0,0. It doesn't seem to matter.

    Did you make it your default? If you don't, then every new layout will have the other numbers.

    Did a quick search for the problem, and in addition to the setting I mentioned, apparently you also have to set the origin for guidelines:

    It seems to work as long as I open the default page size and then resize the page. Maybe this is the way previous versions have been because in all of my previous versions CTRL N created the default page size, but this version allows me to set the page size when I hit CTRL N. AS long as I stick with the default and then resize it I'm fine. Thanks for the help.

    1. Why music and not a narrative step by step? Bad music at that!
    2. Step 1 is unnecessary. If you set your default to just start a new page then resize via the input box
    3. Stop with the overuse of guidelines
    4. guessing on the placement of the guidelines will make for many inconsistencies. Could design left haf then duplicate and flip to the right and weld together so each half is exactly the same.
    5. "Treat all objects as filled" turned on - hate it! First thing I turn off.
    6. Did you seriously copy and resize (5min mark) to create the center! Another inconsistency. Best to use the contour tool unless of course the effect you got was desired to be so.
    7. I, for one, find it very distracting to have all shapes in the Objects docker viewable. All the tools you need will be on the top toolbar (shaping etc) or via keyboard shortcuts
    8. right-click on color docker to remove outline. No need to select 1 at a time select both (alt-drag across a piece of each) right click on X in the color docker.
    9. You don't have snap to guidelines on?
    10. Convert to curves is already on the toolbar also cntl+q no need to go digging
    11. with the shape tool selected right-click on any straight line and choose "To curve" less mouse movement.

    I can't watch any longer. Way too many "wrongs". Make it stop!

    By chance are you "Adobe trained"?
