I have Broderbund Print Shop version 11. How can I open docs on windows 8? Leanne

Sorry I don't think there is a solution. Windows 8 doesn't run version 22 either. I did load version 23 on it for a while but it was limited in size of document. I had to remove it. Am looking for another product now. I guess we have to have an old computer for an old program.

How do I make a CD label?

There is a user manual on the install disc, pdf-format. To get to the manual, insert the install disc and wait for the small window to appear. At the bottom are some options, one being "View User's Guide". Click that. Or you could access the pdf-file itself manually and copy it to your hard drive: After inserting the install disc, go to "My Computer", right-click on your writer drive, choose "Explore", double-click on the folder named "SE1", and look for a file called "SE1 Guide.pdf". Open it, or copy it and paste somewhere on your computer for future reference. Read Chapter 4 of the user guide - it is titled "CD&DVD LabelMaker". Here follows the chapter, illustrations excluded:

Chapter 4


CD&DVD LabelMaker makes designing and printing disc labels

and CD/DVD inserts fast, simple, and fun. Customize labels with

your own photos, text, video stills, and music playlists. Hundreds of

professionally-designed themes are included inside. Supports

label paper templates by Avery®, Memorex®, Neato®, CD
Stomper®, and Direct to CD/DVD Printing with supported printers.

Getting Started

When you first start the program, you're prompted to select the type of

project you want to design and print: Disc Label, Jewel Case Insert,
and DVD Case Insert.

Once you've selected the type of project, you'll be prompted to select

the paper to which you'll be printing. Select your template from the list,

and then click OK. (You can also change your project type by selecting
a new one from the top pull-down.)

Designing your label

You can customize various sections of your label/insert depending

on the selected paper type/template. The main workspace in the

Design Label tab starts by focusing on one section of the label/

insert. For example, if you're using paper that has two disc labels, the
focus will be zoomed onto one of those labels.

Adjusting your view

Notice the two up/down arrows on the left side of the screen. When

applicable, you can click either arrow to shift the focus to the top/

bottom of the page. Click the Paper View button in the lower left

corner to see a small thumbnail of the page. Click the section that
you'd like to edit, and it will appear in the main workspace.

Changing the Background

The right side of the screen lets you change the paper background,

either by applying a color (Use Color) or graphic design (Use

To change the background color, select Use Color. A color palette will

appear. Click the color you want. The color will then appear on the

label/insert in the main workspace. The palette is fairly robust. If you

select a new color that doesn't appear on the grid, you can add it to

your My Favorite Colors.

To delete a custom color, select the color, then click the - icon.

To add a design, select Use Theme. A pull-down at the top lets you

select from a variety of categories. Each category offers a variety of

designs. To select a design to apply to your project, simply click it.

Click the button to the right of the pull-down to search for additional
designs online.

Printing your project
A print preview displays your project.

If there are certain sections/components that you'd prefer to exclude

when printing, simply click that object (it will appear dulled in color).

If you change your mind and decide to print the object, simply click the

object again and it will become active for printing.

Print with Mask: This option is only applicable when printing disc

labels. If you notice that your prints aren't aligning properly with your

labels, uncheck this box. Instead of printing over the circular area of the

label only, a square version of each photo will print to cover more area
and fill the disc label.

Select Your Printer: From the Printer pull-down, choose your


Modify Your Printer Settings: Click the Printer Setup button to

view/modify your printer settings.

Set the Number of Copies: Use the arrow buttons to increase/

decrease the number of copies you'd like to print, or key in the value in
the available box.

I can't open sig. files on window 7 keeps saying not supported will not allow me to use the software to open either. no matter that i the print shop as default

Print Shop 20 is not completely compatible with Windows 7. For example, when I try to open a Print Shop 20 project on my Windows 7 computer, by double-clicking on the file which is displaying the Broderbund logo, I receive an error message which says, "There was a problem sending the command to the program." And, even though the Print Shop 20 file will eventually open, it actually opens in PrintMaster.

It is, however, possible to force the file to open in Print Shop 20 by doing this:

1. Open Windows Explorer, then find and right click on a Print Shop 20 *.sig file.

2. When the menu drops down, click on 'Open with...'.

3. When the 'Open with' window opens, make sure that there is a check mark in the box next to 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file'.

4. If Print Shop 20 is displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on Print Shop 20, then click on OK.

If Print Shop 20 is NOT displayed in either the 'Recommended Programs' section or the 'Other Programs' section, click on the 'Browse' button.

5. When the second 'Open With' window opens, navigate to this folder

C:\Program Files (x86)\The Print Shop 20\The Print Shop 20

then, click on the tps.exe file.

6. Then, click on 'Open' then click on 'OK'.

This should cause all *.sig files to automatically open in Print Shop 20 when you double-click on them. However, since file associations are always based on the file extension of the project file, it might be necessary to repeat the process above for all Print Shop 20 file extensions.

Hope this helps....

you need to load the zdesigner driver from the zebra website, the older zebra universial wont work with zebra designer that why you can't pick it. Designer Driver (32 bit/64 bit, Windows Certified) &dvar3=50

Cut and paste the whole link and paste into the address bar of your web browser or just goto and click drivers and downloads.

Paint Shop Pro 9 Printer Selection (no options available)

There is a workaround which will be suitable for those who use Print Layout in PSP instead of just Print.
With your image open in PSP, goto >File >Print Layout.
Now in the Print Layout screen, goto >File >Print Setup (or just click the Printer / Page Setup Icon).
The Print Setup window will now appear with just your default printer displayed. There should be a Print Setup button next to the Properties button, but it never appears in Vista. You can, however, still access it.
Just press 'Alt-P' and the small print setup dialog box appears, allowing you to choose a different printer!!! happy.gif
