If you have more than approximately 250 fonts installed, the Fonts dialogbox in Corel Draw versions 4.0 and 5.0 may be blank. If you quit Corel Drawand then restart it, the fonts appear.
This behavior occurs because of the way in which Windows 95 manages thedynamic swap file. When you open the Fonts dialog box in Corel Draw, ittries to load every installed font. If the swap file is needed but it istoo small, Corel Draw displays an empty dialog box. Windows 95, however,increases the swap file size to accommodate the large number of fonts. Whenyou restart Corel Draw, the swap file is large enough to load all thefonts.
To resolve this situation, choose the "Let me specify my own virtual memorysettings" option and set the Minimum setting to approximately 30 megabytes(MB). The actual Minimum setting required depends on the number of fontsinstalled, and can be as large as Windows 95 will allow. To access the "Letme specify my own virtual memory settings" option, double-click the Systemicon in Control Panel, click the Performance tab, and then click VirtualMemory.
