Hi all. My first post on this forum.
I teach mathematics at a high school, and for years I used WP 10 for my tests and assignments which contained drawings (diagrams) with text. I never had any problems with it on my laptop running XP with all the service packs. I was printing to a printer at school (a Xerox) and my home printer (a HP). Everything printed perfectly.
In 2006 I purchased a copy of WP X3 and installed it on both my laptop and my home computer running Vista 64-bit. Ran into problems right away. Whenever I tried to print a document containing a diagram with text, the doc looked perfect on my computer screen, but upon printing the text in the diagram was blown up to incredible proportions. You could see only a part of one large character (the font size I was using was 12) in the diagram. This happened on both my laptop printing to the Xerox printer, and to my desktop printing to the HP printer. I had to uninstall X3 from my laptop and reinstall WP 10. The problem went away.
A few weeks ago I bought WP X5, thinking the print problem had surely been solved by now, and installed it on both my computers. No way. When I tried to print a doc created with WP 10 or WP X3 the same enlarged text showed up in a diagram on both computers. When I tried to create a new document in X5 containing a diagram and text, I got an error message "Unable to lock/access memory" on both computers. I then tried to change the font size of the text in the diagram from 12 to a different number like 11 or 10, and now the text characters, when printed, show up all on top of each other. The computer screen doesn't show this.
Again, this same problem is happening on two different computers running two different operating systems and printing to two different printers. I've noticed some other users posting this same problem on other forums, without resolution. Corel support showed me how to restore WP to its factory defaults, which I did, but this never solved the problem on either computer.
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. I love my WordPerfect and wouldn't commit treason by switching to MS Word.
