Default F1 - going for a long shot

I know I know... it's embedded within

Is there a way possibly to disable the Help (F1)

My hand is up in that region 24/7 and it's quite sickening
hitting the Help button.

I thought disabling Help would do it... but no.

I haven't tried this myself, but have you tried assigning a different shortcut to F1? Maybe create a macro that does absolutely nothing and assign F1 to launch it.

DRAW disallows F1 assignment in its customizing UI, and ignores F1 in case of direct workspace XML editing.

Actually the easiest way is to use some freeware hotkey manager like AutoHotKey or any other (more user-friendly).

For AutoHotKey - put this code in AutoHotKey.ini file (create it) in the utility's folder:
GroupAdd, wgCorel, ahk_class CorelDRAW 14.0
GroupAdd, wgCorel, ahk_class CorelDRAW 13.0
GroupAdd, wgCorel, ahk_class CorelDRAW 12.0
#ifwinactive ahk_group wgCorel
then make a shortcut for AutoHotkey executable file in Startup programs folder.
