I have been working with CorelX4 for quite some time now but never encountered this before. I think my troubles began (not sure though) when I imported a PDF in the program. After a little while the color palette suddenly became glaringly fluorescent and no amount of rebooting could get my original color palette back. After that I opened the Palette Editor under Tools and fiddled around the Sort button settings there. This changed the order I was seeing the colors in my palette which stayed as fluorescent as ever and the original sequence would not come back no matter what I did. I read up a bit and played around with the Color Management settings-in vain. As a last resort I have uninstalled and installed the program again-to no avail! What should I do? I tried the F8 start as well-that didn't work either...going crazy now, please help! Oh and about a couple of weeks ago my system got a new TFT monitor, if counts for anything.
Go to Tools/Color manager and restore you Colro profile. If you don't know what color profile must use, choose "optimized for professional output"

Had tried that earlier but it hadn't worked. Found a quick fix on the forum from an old post:
Go to documents and settings --> then
your user accounts (xyz) --> then application data --> delete the
folder name corel and start the corel draw or photo paint and you will
find your old palette back.
If you are using winXp or 2000 then simplest way is to create a new user
and work in that account.
Hi sir, it was very hard to find the right answer to my question about this fluorescent color of my color palette in my corel draw, but this time i'm so lucky to read and have try your suggestion and VOILA! it all comes back to normal.... again many thanks
