Once you have chosen your pre-designed template, click the text to select the text box. Highlight the text and enter your own information. Use the Tools on the left side to format your text - change font, font size, font style, alignment, text color and more.

To add a text box, click the Text icon at the top and enter your information in your project. To create circular text, click the Circular Text icon at the top and enter your information in the Enter text field on the left side toolbar. You can easily move text boxes by selecting the text box and dragging it to the desired position.



To format an existing image, click the graphic in the pre-designed template and use the Opacity tool in the left toolbar to increase or decrease the opacity level of the graphic. You can easily move an image by selecting the image and dragging it to the desired position.



To replace the existing graphic in the pre-designed template, select the graphic and click Gallery in the left toolbar. The Clip Art window will open offering three ways to replace your graphic. Select from the hundreds of images in the DesignPro Clip Art gallery, or select the iPhoto tab to choose an image or graphic from the files in your iPhoto gallery. The file must be in a format supported by Avery DesignPro Mac (BMP, TIF, JPG, PNG, PCT, GIF). Or select a previously saved design from the Snapshot Gallery tab. Click the Insert button to insert the image in your project.



To add an image, click the Image icon at the top and use the Clip Art window to insert an image. You can also add shapes by clicking the Shapes icon at the top. Click the Background icon at the top to format the background of your project. Use the tools on the left side to change the background color, gradient and opacity.

Needs upgrading

This review is from How to Format a Template in Avery DesignPro® for Mac®:

I have the Design Pro software installed on my Mac. Software works OK but needs to be upgraded or fine tuned. I really don't like working on line and prefer not to be connected to the internet when creating a project.

Can't even use this!

I wasted a lot of money on CD inserts and labels and cannot even make this software work. This is the worst product I have ever bought. I got things that worked before from Avery, but will not buy anything more!

needs a lot of improvement

This review is from How to Format a Template in Avery DesignPro® for Mac®:

I have been using this software for over 6 months now and find it to be erratic, underdeveloped, and difficult to work with. It's not easy to set the magnification slider (can't understand why it would magnify as much as it does) font size, etc. Things sort of move by themselves and no one knows how it will look when it is finished.
Also, after working on a CD/DVD label file with text and image, locking everything so that it doesn't change, and saving it for later printing, all locked items show unlocked when I open the file to print.
