coreldraw error reading power box content

Explorer | Level 3

Hello.

 

I'm having problems opening coreldraw files with content (image) inside power box. 

For ex>  create a file> save file> try open another day from another device .... BIG ERROR. NOTHING INSIDE THE BOX. ussually pictures (bmp files) .

 

Has anyone encountered this problem?

 

Thanks

I'm not familiar with CorelDRAW or whatever a power box is, but if it's anything like embedding a file in another file, it likely won't work anywhere except on the computer where the file was created, and it has nothing to do with Dropbox.

 

Applications that embed other files typically use the full path from the top of your drive when embedding the file. If that path isn't exactly the same on another computer when the file is opened, the embedded file won't be found.

Thanks Rich for the reply. 

 

Thats my problem.... let me explain how it works by comparison

 

CorelDraw - insering an bitmap in corel is how you say .. embedded. The bmp has no outside link. The file will be saved with content inside.

 

InDesign for example - insering a bitmap in InDesign will createa a outside link .. with the source file (.bmp in this case) -- i m using InDesign also and had no problems there.

 

I presume it has to do with the OS. Home comp using W10. Work comp using W7. Can this be the cause of my problems?

 

Thanks
