Default Upgrading Coreldraw VBA from V12 to X3

I've been coding VBA for Coreldraw for a number of years, and am very happy to discover this forum.

I am in the process of testing my macros, developed in previous versions of Coreldraw (9-12), on Coreldraw X3.

Our office uses templates that contain pre-set information used by the macros. This data is stored in Document.Properties.

In Coreldraw 12, creating a new document from a .cdt file ("With Contents" checked) opens a new .cdr file containing the Document properties from the Template.

In Coreldraw X3, if I have just opened X3 and open a new document from a template, it works like V12. However if I close that .cdr file and open a second file from the same template, the new document has nothing in document properties. (Activedocument.Properties.Count = 0)

Does anyone know why this would happen? I'm not sure if it is an X3 bug, or if I need to change the way I store and access this data in X3.

My X3 is up-to-date with all the service patches.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!

There is always a bruteforce solution of creating your own template browser :-) however working with X3 cdts I don't encounter the problem and do you?

Default Made some progress....

I have narrowed down the problem to the use of the Open event. I was picking up the document properties when the DocumentOpen event fired. In X3 they are not yet loaded at this point. Now that I know this I can work around the problem.
