    I just made a really important project in CorelDRAW X4 (cracked) and now it's all locked up!
    Like I can't PRINT, SAVE, nothing.

    No, no, like there shaded dark gray like the option isn't available.

    The program is running fine it's just not letting me print or save or do anything outside of the program basically.

    And im DESPERATE now because I NEED TO PRINT THIS SO BAD. DUE TOMORROW.

    Print Screen it, open it in Paint and select your image to print.

    Yeah but it's pretty large, it's normal size paper, 8x11. The ACTUAL SIZE of the paper wont fit on one screenshot. Like 100% size.

    Can you copy and then paste the image into Paint?
    Export it, something?

    It's a Vector image with multiple layers, so I can't.

    MAN. That stupid cracked ******* of CorelDRAW X4 is like a scam.

    This stuff all normally locks up like this when you try the 30-day trial of this program.

    Is there any chance it might save it if you dont close it properly? Such as Microsoft Word saving your work if your computer shuts down suddenly, you can retrieve it?
