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.

Not an easy program to use

By Reenec

from Jonesboro, AR

Pros

  • I Had A Really Hard Time

Cons

  • Difficult To Navigate

Best Uses

    This review is from Avery Design & Print:

    Super difficult time navigating your online program. First it was difficult installing the program to my MAC computer. Second, once it had the program installed it was hard to figure out how to enter my recipients addresses. I will just hand write my announcements for now.

      Product not worth downloading

      By Rockman

      from Southern Oregon

      This review is from Avery Design & Print:

      Product would not take information in clipboard. If it is not compatible with copy and paste for graphics then it is not worth the time for me to create special graphics for the product. Get into the modern world. Your old product shipped with the paper products did better than this.

      Produced cart text and graphics in word processor in less time it would have taken me to learn your program.
