I can't understand all the negative reviews. Using the downloadable Windows installer for my Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit machine, it works like a charm. It could be slightly more intuitive; however, it is easy to figure out if you ever used any type of labeling or greeting card software in the past (just two of many I've bought and used are Art Explosion Pro, Hallmark software, etc). Not quite as robust as Art Explosion, of course, but for free software it is quite the deal.

The program does allow me to save my address label projects (have not tried a greeting card yet, but will update once I do). It does allow reopening saved project files with no problem other than having to look at the bottom center of the Open a Saved Project tab screen once the program launches to see the correct link (middle center defaults to your online Avery account - not a deal breaker for me either way, but do prefer local machine storage as I backup regularly via Macrium Reflect free edition and Google drive).

Also, truthfully, the program does take a little longer to save and open a project than it really should, as I am using an AMD FX-6300 MHz processor, which normally blazes through whatever I through at it...this is the first program that has a several second delay when saving and opening, as well as when printing. But for free, can't complain too much.

I was ready to run when I saw the reviews, but past experience (about 8 years ago I think) with Avery software helped take a gamble, and it was well worth the roll of the dice. And did I mention, it is free?

This software is missing features that were available in DesignPro. You can no longer specify where, on the physical page, the printing should start. You can no longer specify to print multiple copies of a given label on the same page. I am currently shopping for an alternative and am open to suggestions. In the meantime, I have to keep one computer on Windows 7 just to print labels.

  • Was A Good Program

Cons

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      We have always been a solid Avery products user here at our company with no issues. Now they have changed from the Microsoft Word Add-in to their own product at which first we were excited about it then came nothing except for printer issues printing the text out of alignment every time and the few times we did manage to get a good printout it would revert to printing wrong again. We are done with Avery until they fix their printing issues which I am hearing many companies and people.

      Design and Print is Garbage

      By Warthog

      from Tacoma

      Pros

        Cons

        • Difficult To Navigate

        Best Uses

          This review is from Avery Design & Print:

          Most missed feature is a Copy/Cut and Paste functionality that actually is fully Windows compatible. It is pretty useless not to be able to (for instance) copy from Design and Print and paste (for instance) into WORD. The ability to cut and paste only works INSIDE Design and Print...which is useless.

            Best Uses

              This review is from Avery Design & Print:

              I've bought Avery products for years and downloaded templates easily. Today I could NOT get to anywhere near to a download that used to be a simple matter. Too much interference with products I was not interested in today. I've spent nearly one hour trying to simply find one template to download and still have been unsuccessful. I am very discouraged. What used to be simple now seems impossible. I don't like it.

                  I would like it to have word styles like Microsoft word. This way you can outline the text in a glow or different color.
