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.

Did like it at first, but now I can not add my logo, pictures, or any graphics to anything. As I have read other post, I'm not the only one. I also called and it got me no where.

    • Difficult To Navigate

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      Avery took a great simple product in Design Pro and turned it into a piece of junk. Design & Print may be great for designing a "ONE TIME" fancy label but it's worthless for everyday use. What took seconds in Design Pro with a saved template, now takes several minutes or more. Forget it if you have to make a change to a saved template, impossible. If Avery employees had to use this software, Design Pro would be back in heartbeat.

        This review is from Avery Design & Print:

        I would like to delete this application and every link as it will not perform. I have previously used Avery for the same purpose of printing labels on my computor ( different computer) and I had no problem. I have wasted enough time on my project which is Labels for Anzac Cookies. I will not be purchasing any more Avery Products.

        Awful

        By Silversmith

        from Michigan

        This review is from Avery Design & Print:

        I wouldn't recommend this to an enemy. Just awful. Labels don't line up and software is impossible to use. Not worth the free price.
        I use the system about once every two months and it never works the way I remembers. Just so frustrating. Not good! AVERY!
