How to Open a DesignPro Project in Avery Design & Print

It's easy to import saved DesignPro projects in Avery Design & Print.

If you downloaded the Avery Design & Print software to your computer, choose the Open a Saved Project tab and click at the bottom of the screen to Load Project.



Browse for your DesignPro PC .zdl file or your DesignPro Mac .avery file on your computer and click Open.



Once your project opens, you can then customize your design.

Save or Print your project using Avery Design & Print. If you save your project to a free MyAvery account, you can access your projects from any computer or tablet while online.

Please note:

- Some projects will not transfer completely. Data that was imported into a DesignPro project (such as a mail merge) will not carry over to Avery Design & Print. The layout for your project should transfer and then you can use the easy drag-and-drop mail merge in Avery Design & Print Online to import your data.

- Images from the DesignPro clip art gallery may not import, but you can choose a new image from the extensive gallery in Avery Design & Print.

- Serial barcodes and Date/Time stamps will not import, and will need to be re-created. Barcodes that are not supported by Avery Design & Print will not import, but you will be able to generate QR Codes with Avery Design & Print.

    Extremely poor quality and very aggravating experience. Wasted many hours of my time with no results. Back to hand-writing. We are looking for an alternative to Avery now

    So far it doesn't work for me. Need a copy of DesignPro 5!

    This review is from How to Open a DesignPro Project in Avery Design & Print:

    So far I don't like anything about the new Design & Print, and have been unable to find a copy of DesignPro 5. I can import .zdl files to the newer version, but haven't been able to print successfully with it yet.

    With DesignPro 5 it was so easy. At least make DesignPro 5 available to those of us who want to continue using it. I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't do that.

    Create 50+ custom layouts (.zdl file) in Design Pro that will not transfer to this product. Asked how often do I use this product - this product I will never use, Used Design Pro everyday.

    Lousy Software

    By John

    from Manhattan Beach CA

    This review is from How to Open a DesignPro Project in Avery Design & Print:

    Worst version ever. I have a sequential number label. It did not import properly. I had to recreate. Then is ask me the ending number which I didn't want. But I had to enter something. When I tried to print, gone was the option to print a number of sheets. Now I have to figure out how many labels and how many sheets and only create that number of labels. What a mess. Even after I created 300 number (30x10 sheets) it kept printing blank pages after that. Another mess. After a dozen or more years of using Avery, looking to find a competitors product.

    Horrible disapointment to all DesignPro customers

        This review is from How to Open a DesignPro Project in Avery Design & Print:

        Horrible decision by Avery to abandon a platform that was used by many of us for years. I have over 300 addresses in database linked to DesignPro which I have printed out on Avery Christmas labels every year. What shortsighted and poorly executed transition that leaves your customer base frustrated and irate. Certainly takes the luster out of the "Avery" name for many of us!
