What should I do if CorelDRAW isn’t working properly on my computer?

One thing that sometimes occurs while using CorelDRAW is some unexplainable anomaly, such as I experienced while writing this article. It happened that I was suddenly unable to move objects by the click-and-drag method, though the Nudge and Align features continued to work properly. To solve the problem, I first tried restarting the program, which did not help. So, I did a Repair install of the problem, also to no avail. Finally, I restarted my computer, which solved the problem. I never discovered the cause of the problem but was able to easily remedy it before contacting Corel Support or calling a Computer Geek. I can only surmise that there was some unknown conflict between my Windows 7 Operating System and CorelDRAW X7.
