      You use to have a quick edit feature, I can still edit each label individually but it takes 4 to 5 times as long. Is there any possibility that the quick edit feature will come back to your new software?

      I hate the new software!

      This review is from How to Open and Edit a DesignPro PC project in Avery Design & Print Online:

      Since you've rolled out this new design format my labels look terrible. They printing is out of alignment no matter what I do and I can't get the labels to even look right. Please bring back the old design software or at least give us the option.

      This review is from How to Open and Edit a DesignPro PC project in Avery Design & Print Online:

      The website has changed. I have been using Avery to print my labels for a couple years. To edit saved projects it has always been very easy. I cannot get a preview of my labels in order to edit. I don't know what to do. I need to print labels for my products. I am getting frantic as I have a business to run and don't have time for this garbage. Avery you have screwed me big time. I tried use the old version but

      Design Pro was OK, Design & Print is utter rubbish

      By Steve

      Pros

        Cons

        • Poor Quality
        • Unprofessional
        • Unresponsive

          This review is from How to Open and Edit a DesignPro PC project in Avery Design & Print Online:

          Design Pro allowed one to select a particular label and then print a number of sheets of the same label. Design & Print fails to do this. Also cannot copy the contents of a label and paste into another (as a workaround to try and create a page of labels). The earlier products might have cost money but were much better - they no longer seem to be available. Design & Print is a very poor advert for Avery and should be sorted out NOW.

              Spend HOURS last night creating the perfect labels, only for the buggy avery website and software to produce pop ups like "can't print now, try again later". So the next day I go to load up my project, and I get "processing" forever, and my projecct is GONE. HOURS down the drain. Worst possible solution for anyone running a small business. Wasted time. Now I'm in a pinch. Thanks for nothing.
