Default t AlignToPageCenter adn AlignAndDistribute do not work in X7

I am upgrading from CorelDraw X5 to X7. I have an external program written in Vb.Net. When I change the reference to use X7 form X5 and run the code below the AlignToPageCenter does not work. The box is created but the box.AlignToPageCenter does not work, nothing happens to the box it does not move. I have tried box.AlignAndDistribute but that throws an Access violation error. I also need to align text to the center of the box but in X7 that does not work either using ThisLine.AlignToShape(just, box, CorelDRAW.cdrTextAlignOrigin.cdrTextAlignBoundingBox)

I understand that I could simply do something like box = CorelApp.ActiveLayer.CreateRectangle2(0 + 0.045, CorelDoc.MasterPage.BottomY + 0.045, (CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeWidth - 0) - 0.09, CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeHeight - 0.09)
to place the red box centered on the page but this is a siplified example of what I am doing. The issue is that AlignToPageCenter adn AlignAndDistribute do not work in X7. What is the alternative to this. I have uploaded the VS 2013 solution if it helps.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated Thanks

CorelApp.Application.Visible = True

CorelDoc = CorelApp.CreateDocument()

CorelDoc.Resolution = 1200

CorelDoc.Unit = CorelDRAW.cdrUnit.cdrInch
CorelApp.ActiveWindow.ActiveView.SetViewPoint(1.0#, 0.5, 100)
CorelDoc.MasterPage.SetSize(2.0#, 2.0#)
CorelDoc.MasterPage.Orientation = CorelDRAW.cdrPageOrientation.cdrLandscape
CorelDoc.MasterPage.PrintExportBackground = True
CorelDoc.MasterPage.Bleed = 0.0#
CorelDoc.MasterPage.Background = CorelDRAW.cdrPageBackground.cdrPageBackgroundNone

Dim boxColor As New CorelDRAW.Color
boxColor.CMYKAssign(0, 100, 100, 0)

Dim box As CorelDRAW.Shape
'box = CorelApp.ActiveLayer.CreateRectangle2(0 + 0.014, CorelDoc.MasterPage.TopY, (CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeWidth - 0) - 0.09, CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeHeight - 0.09)
box = CorelApp.ActiveLayer.CreateRectangle2(0 + 0.014, CorelDoc.MasterPage.CenterX, (CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeWidth - 0) - 0.09, CorelDoc.MasterPage.SizeHeight - 0.09)
box.Name = "Box"
box.Outline.Width = 0.014 * 1

'box.AlignToPageCenter(CorelDRAW.cdrAlignType.cdrAlignVCenter, CorelDRAW.cdrTextAlignOrigin.cdrTextAlignBoundingBox)

box.AlignAndDistribute(VGCore.cdrAlignDistributeH.cdrAlignDistributeHDistributeCenter, VGCore.cdrAlignDistributeV.cdrAlignDistributeVDistributeCenter, VGCore.cdrAlignShapesTo.cdrAlignShapesToCenterOfPage)

Default AlignAndDistribute

AlignToPageCenter has been broken since X6.1 I believe, and yes it is still broken in X7.3. You are on the right track to use AlignAndDistribute. You just need to make sure you are using the AlignCenter and not the DistributeCenter. Looking at your code, here is the corrected version that will work:
 box.AlignAndDistribute(VGCore.cdrAlignDistributeH.cdrAlignDistributeHAlignCenter, VGCore.cdrAlignDistributeV.cdrAlignDistributeVAlignCenter, VGCore.cdrAlignShapesTo.cdrAlignShapesToCenterOfPage)
Hope that gets you all fixed up,

Shelby thanks for the reply. Did not see this till now. I tried your code but I get the same error.

"An unhandled exception of type 'System.AccessViolationException' occurred in CorelDrawTest.exe
Additional information: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."

Any thoughts?
