Avery Dennison Design Pro
 
I wish somebody would tell me why I can download Avery DesignPro, (any of
several versions) and yet the program fails to install properly. I always
get errors (which will be sent to Microsoft, of course) which say that the
installation failed. When I look in Internet Explorer for the downloaded
files, there is no .exe to be found for DesignPro. I have been trying for
months to download and install DesignPro for PC on my HP630n using XP. No, I
am not downloading Design Pro for MAC.

Not an answer to your question, but as usual, the way /I/ do
things.

I do not rely on ANYBODY'S templates, even if they are made by
the same company that makes the paper (sticky paper in this
case, though not necessarily). In fact I do not even install
templates when I install a DTP or such program.

I make my own templates. It takes a few minutes with a good
ruler (If you have 2 or more rulers of different brands around,
compare them. You may be surprised.) and another few minutes
placing non-printing horiz and vert guide-lines in InDesign.
Then some test prints, some holding things against a strong
light, and you're done.

Also, some printers grab paper /very slightly/ differently than
others making the pre-designed templates useless or at best in
need of adjustments.

Once you have made the most complicated one (don't forget about
"group objects/copy" and "multiple copy with offsets"), you can
easily modify it.

Unless you are making semicircular labels for super bizarre
reel-to-reel obsolete video tape formats or something, it's
nothing you can't handle.

I guarantee the templates will be more accurate - if you do a
good job.
