Formerly Great Program is now TRASH

Pros

    Cons

    • Not Reliable
    • Will Not Merge Excel Data

    Best Uses

      This review is from Avery DesignPro Retirement:

      Once a year, I print ~100 Christmas labels for a retirement village to give to each employee. This year, the new Avery Design & Print, V3.3 will NOT import new employee data from Excel to merge into the label design. It hangs up. I am now looking for a new program, hopefully a free download, that works perfectly as the old Avery DesignPro did before they discontinued it.

          Why doesn't Avery read some of these reviews? 100% do NOT like this new "improved" piece of junk!
          I'm trying to upgrade a birthday card for my aged sister and can only see one of the 4 panels. This is ridiculous!
          I've got to find something else - somewhere!
          Design Pro at least worked! This does NOT!

            This review is from Avery DesignPro Retirement:

            I was able to open my saved file with ADP. The project is a sheet of business cards. Previously, I could select one card and print an entire page of just that selected card. Is there a way to do that with ADP? Please... I'm desperate! I'm so close but can't make that final step and printing is PRETTY IMPORTANT!!!!

            Not very good

            By Carl

            from Louisiana

            This review is from Avery DesignPro Retirement:

            I have to label a vendors catalog with our sale prices every 6 months. I get their pricing file in Excel every 6 months. 760+ pages and 8k+ sku's. There is no way to merge the file properly. need the following format
            Item# Description Price
            All on one line and that line needs to reprint 3-6 lines per page on 5160 labels. 1-2 pages (labels) per page # from file. In other words 4 item on page 6 all need to print on same label. Also you can set font to 6 and import and it is overridden. Set it in Excel and it is overridden. Not everyone needs to print mailing labels. Excel headers= item Desc Price Page

            Betrayal

              This review is from Avery DesignPro Retirement:

              You betrayed me. I've a hundred CD labels in my church media files. Setting up a new computer, need a SIMPLE label printer software LIKE DESIGNPRO 5.0 WAS. Installed your "new and improved" Design & Print. Totally refuses to load my hundred .zdp archived/personally designed 5.0 labels. Thanks guys. You screwed me. Tried to work with your software. NOT user friendly. No clue how to put my logo on the label I tried to recover and redesign. Yes, I'm upset. You couldn't leave a good thing alone. I strenuously dispute your line above, "You still can easily open, edit and print your DesignPro projects". Hogwash. It won't even show up in your open box. I would appreciate a prompt response as I'm running out of time to get the new computer up and integrated before the old unit WITH THE PERFECT DESIGNPRO 5.0 label working fine.
