12 feet at 300 dpi? Wow, that is one hell of a file size (12 feet @ 300 dpi = 43,200 pixels). Is that really what you are trying to get?

Anyway, CorelDRAW (and Photo-Paint) has a limit of something like 30,000 pixels for bitmaps. So you can't have more than that...

As for your weird TIFF exporting difference between CorelDRAW and Photo-Paint, I would pay closer attention to the parameters of the image you are exporting. A few things to note:

1. The color model of the image you are exporting. Your software might understand RGB tiffs but not CMYK, make sure that both Photo-Paint and CorelDRAW has RGB color model for export

2. TIFFs can have alpha channels (transparency) which your software might not understand. Make sure "Transparent Background" is not selected in the export dialog

3. TIFFs can have different compression methods. On File>Export dialog, the compression is listed in a drop-down box in the lower right corner of the dialog. Make sure Draw and Photo-Paint use the same settings.
