    Misery loves company--last night I was working on some new name tag designs and the only thing I had open besides Corel was my email. With just that one file Corel crashed.

    Mine can get bogged down if I have too much going on. I do a lot of print merge and that seems to be a memory hog so it can lock up the program and cause a few other problems as well. I typically...

    Take a look at the Trotec site. I just watched part of the webinar. You can have both Ruby and JC on your computer so you can dictate when you want to remove JC, if ever.

    In my experience Trotec has a history of being generous with their software. I've never had to pay for anything in my 15 years as a Trotec owner.

    My SIL in LA has a couple of trees and tried to ship us a fairly large box of them. They don't travel well:(
