JACUSTOMER-h6e2p8ve- :

I'm using Broderbund Print Shop 2.0 Delux

businesslegions :

ok that's a very old application

businesslegions :

JACUSTOMER-h6e2p8ve- :

All my other projects in Broderbund work just fine, birthday cards, letters etc.

yes

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


Of Course!

Expert:  Robert M. replied 4 years ago.

It may just be a problem with that version of brodurbond on windows 7

 

try re installing the software that particular function may be corrupted and a re install will fix it,

I will try to reinstall later today.

Expert:  Robert M. replied 4 years ago.
ok let me know if that works please. The other possibility is that you are missing a step or putting things in the wrong place. I am assuming that if you have been using the program for this long you have that part down pretty well. But if you want to show me a screenshot of the finished page before it prints I can look at it and see if something jumps out at me
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
