Support and Findings / Work around for Micrografx Instant 3D
« Last post by Pul Wilks on June 20, 2014, 10:58:28 am »
Work around for Instant 3D (if it does not work properly with save as or open)

I found that someone was actually able to use instant 3d on their Windows 7 64-bit pc. But your not one of those people:

You will need at least one project file (if you do not have one you can download a project file attached in this post)  all you need to do is make copies of that project and make a new file name for it for every time you want to do a new file. Of course to edit the file all you need to do is double click on it to open it. You can still save just not use the save as

Exporting as bmp (or whatever) for desktop wallpaper

You will need another graphics program possibly even ms paint will do. After you have finish Simply copy and paste the graphics from the program by pressing ctrl+C and then ctrl+V (or paste) in to your favourite graphics program save the file using the graphics program.



If you have Simply 3d that will work similar to Micrografx instant 3d and should be more compatible with newer operating systems.

This isn't the perfect workaround but at least you can edit and create files in this way

Sometimes if a program behaves incorrectly and you set the compatibility to windows xp sp3 (or whatever setting makes it work right) then you may be able to first let it run in that mode then remove the compatibility setting it will probably work properly again without using that setting

If you have Micrografx Simply 3D that should work better with newer operating systems than instant 3D, simply 3d is the newer version of instant 3D

Does what it says on the bin, it works!! clear instructions didnt really need to contact you for support because its very easy anyway  :P . Micrografx Draw works perfectly in fact I was able to use your suggestion on a few other programs too. My only regrets of buying a new PC was not being able to run Micrografx Draw on it. Cheers

Support and Findings / The Amount of fonts affect Micrografx Draw
« Last post by Pul Wilks on June 07, 2014, 03:41:00 pm »
If you have installed Micrografx Draw sometimes, it will crash for no reason this often because of the amount of fonts installed by other software especially certain versions of Photoshop an example shown in this video is when using a program called fontfrenzy to reduce the amount fonts to system fonts and then program worked properly again.

This test was done on the 32-bit version of Windows 7 so this is more of a general thing in any newer operating system

Note: Most new PC's use the 64-bit version of Windows because the manufacturers drivers work better on that version, also the 32-bit version only allows up 3.5GB's of ram to be used most new PC's use 4GB or more of ram. However if your PC is running the 32-bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 then you wont need to purchase the guide

The video below applies to both the 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, 8 and 8.1

The same can happen also on Windows XP:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dDW6hQ0ZEw

Note: you have to be careful using this program because when i tried it on windows 8 it actually took away the system fonts of the operating system
on windows 7 it took away the micrografx draw fonts which is why towards the end of the video the program usings different fonts for when setting up the page to work on

Another solution is if you have photoshop installed you will have to run it first then while leaving PS running run Micrografx Draw
