Opening CorelDraw 12 documents -text shifting and changing size

We are a store that creates invitations using CorelDraw 12. A problem that is currently occurring is text shifting on the page. For example I had just done a seating allocation which had guest in alphabetical order all typed in a Garamond font as a continuos body of text, with spacing between (eg) A, B, C etc in this spacing I would place a nice script font like Brock Script as a heading for that letter eg: A. Each time I would check back over the document or close and reopen it, all the cursive font letter headings would have moved. These cursive fonts are all individual pieces and not connected to the main body of text. Another problem that is happening is doing a layout for an invitation and completing it with it all looking really good and then reopening that same file on a networked computer and all text would be around two points larger and everything shifting. This is making it very hard for staff in the shop to share work on documents. This is happening using all font types. For example one staff member would create an invitation on one PC and then another would reopen that file on another networked PC to finish it off by inserting guest names to get it ready for printing. At the moment we have to continue working from start to finish on the same PC. We have been doing this for 7 years with no problem and this has only started happening in the last couple of months and not on every file, it seems to be random. All networked PC'S have been fully reinstalled twice within this time. I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any ideas on what could be happening. Thank you.

How do i fix CorelDraw?

Hi, these steps work for me.
1. rename the file to ".zip "
2. open the zip-file with Winzip or WinRar (these programs has a repair-function for zip)
3. try to repair the file
4. then extract the riffdata.cdr from content-folder of zip-file and open this file in CorelDRAW
Maybe that utility might be what you're looking for - CorelDraw Fix Toolbox

I have used CorelDraw 8 for years, and the clipart worked fine, even with Windows XP, but I installed CorelDraw X4 and installed it. But after Installing CorelDraw X4, I could no longer is CorelDraw 8...

I had a similar problem with Coreldraw 8. I used it successfully for years and loved it on varoius version of Windows, currently XP. I installed Coreldraw 12 and still had Corel 8 on the computer.
Now the problem: Corel 8 and Corel 12 could not open the Corel 8 clipart disk #2, only just down to the folder level. When I right clicked on the Corel 8 disk #2 clipart folder and checked the Path Properties it gave me a path other than the correct clipart disk location (in my case it should have read E:) BUT it was some weird location like
MNfisherman referenced above and read: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Corel.! What the?! I knew the path should have read E: to access the clipart since the clipart was on the disk and in my CD tray, so I uninstalled Corel 12 thinking that was the problem since 8 had worked fine, then checked the clipart CD again but still no luck.
I then uinstalled Corel 8, so now I had no Corel program on hard drive. I put the Corel 8 clipart disk #2 in the computer knowing it would not open the clips but just to see if I could get beyond the folder level to see if the clipart files were there and yes I could. (I could only read the names of the files at this point because no Corel on computer) So I only reinstalled Coreldraw 12 figuring the later version would open the older version clipart and Success! It worked. I think my problem had something to do with the Corel 8 MF indexer, but I'm not sure. I had a red semi circle (like the Corel Set Up Semi circle) on all of the clipart folders instead of the regular yellowish fold so thats why I think it had something to do with indexer or other type of setup conflict). Now all of my clipart folders appear normal being the regular yellowish color folder.
I suggest using a clean slate by unistalling all versions (Make sure you shut down the computer after each uninstall to get rid of all of the components of the program and then restart the computer) and then only reinstall the newest version. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Coreldraw 12 does not launch even on new installation of xp and coreldraw 12

Are you receiving any errors?
Is this the shortcut on your desktop?
I would try navigating to the actual coreldraw.exe file
windows logo + r

If it's anything like microsoft word you can use this
window logo + r
coreldraw.exe /s or /a for safe mode options.

If you want to edit text, use the type tool to highlight the text. This makes the text active unless you have Rasterized the text. Once Rasterized it is no longer editable.
To delete photos or text on layers, you can drag the layer to the small trash can at the bottom of the layers pallet.
