Creating cd labels with Memorex exPressit Label Design

I just purchased CD Label Design Kit from Memorex. First i have a problem selecting the type of Label to design, Audio, Data or General Purpose. I chose general purpose. The blank label have "sample", "title" & "subtitle" on it. When I try to insert the text, it write over the word "sample" and I still have "title" & "subtitle" on the face. It also tells me that if I want a "separator", since it is circular text, I should add a separator. WHAT IS A SEPARATOR??. The instruction booklet is not easy to follow at all & I wish I had not purchased it. Do you understand my problem or am I just not smart enough to bother with this project?
Thanks for any assistance I can get.

    When I open the Memorex exPressit program, how do I delete the two words on the sample, one at the top and one at the bottom. When I open the space for typing in the information I wish on the label, but when I print a sample copy, the two words, one at the top and one at the bottom, are on the printed sample. How do I delete them to continue?

    I also have not been able to find exact instructions how to get started. There must be a simple way, as I have used other makes of labels, and had to problem with them. Perhaps I will use the other labels rather than Memorex, unless there is a simple way to make them.

    I'm having problems getting my label printed correctly. It's printing about 3/4 to an inch to high on the cd/dvd label. I have wasted about ten labels already, please help me with this problem. I've tried calibrating and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    A further Memorex Expressit plea for help - is there any way I can "export" or select/copy/past or get other software to put an existing Expressit design into an electronic form as a .JPG or similar. I need to do enlargement work on an electronic version of a CD Insert design. Thanks to enyone who will try to respond. Bless you.

I have just read the comments and was thinking about taking mine back for exactly the same reasons. Then I asked my 12 year old!! She clicked on the text and got a drop down list and then hit cut object - it worked - the sample text disappeared!! Worth a try.

I saw this expressit lable maker at Staples for $10. I had all of the problems mentioned above, with an additional problem that the help files are in an old format that can't be read by recent machines from vista on. I will try to return it. The price was cheap, but it cost me a lot in wasted time.

The problem lies in the fact that there isn't sufficient documentation or instructions. There are many others who have similar difficulties, so it isn't you. It is some very confusing software. I would suggest trying to get your money back from where you purchased it, and buying labeling software from a reputable software company. I use Avery software, which is free, and Avery labels, which are about average in price.

Have you tried deleting the text boxes by selecting the box (by the text box's frame) and deleting it? If you can't find the instructions or the way to make a separator, is it otherwise possible to make a label with circular text? Try selecting a different template and making that look like what you want.

Question: I have a CD Label Design Kit from Memorex and while I can print the label and text alright, I cannot, under any circumstances, get the design to line up on the disc properly when it prints. It is ALWAYS a 1/2 in off. When I take it to Best Buy they tell me they will look at it but it will cost $95 an hour, their tech fee. Any ideas? I'm so frustrated I'm thinking of pitching the whole thing and buying something else.

MissieP (above) nailed it! Right click on the unwanted text and then left click on "cut object" from the drop down menu.

Error message - design to big- use multiple hoop embroidery-won't transfer to my machine for a large design

If you can get the Buzz edit software there is an easy fix. Open the design in buzz edit. Under the view tab, show hoop properties and select xl6000 hoop. Then again under the edit tab select all. next under the buzztools tab rotate the design 90 degrees. This usually takes care of the problem, don't forget to save as copy. If it is still too large, shrink the design until you see it fit into the hoop on the screen. Don't shrink it more than 10percent or your stitches will be too cramped. Hope this helps. I use it all the time. Using this you can use designs up to 5.5 x 9 inches

I have Home Design for Mac in 9.2 classic. New Mac running 10.4 can't run it. Upgradeable?

If Abracadata is out of business, as it looks like they are, then probably not. Your best bet is to purchase a different software package designed for Mac OS X.
The Macintosh Classic environment will NOT run on Intel based macs. I am assuming your new mac is Intel. I actually keep a couple older macs around at work to run legacy software that isn't supported anymore, or is too expensive to upgrade.

Can't complete registration of my product without CD Key.

First check your Amazon receipt. They usually put the cd activation key on your invoice when you purchase a digital download. If it is not on the invoice then check your e-mail to see if they mailed it to you. If they did not then contact customer support and give them your order info. They should give you a key at this time. Hope this helps.

Print problems

Print to fit page prints thumbnail size image.

trnsp.gif Answer Zoom out to make your design appear on a single screen, drag and draw a box around it, using the Select Objects Tool. Once it's all selected, go to Edit > copy, File > new, Edit > paste. Print from this new file.
Note: this may be caused by an extraneous object on an outer edge of your plan. When you zoom out, pan around your design to see if there is a stray object, which you can delete.
