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.

Will your software work on my Mac running OS 10.6.2 I bought your CD labels and need a design template


Unfortunately the Memorex LabelMaker ExpressIt Label Design Studio software is only compatible with Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP.

If you install Boot Camp, you can install Windows and use this software in a virtual computer. (However, you need a licensed copy of Windows.)

There are third party video editing software packages that have label design components (Roxio Toast is one package.) The Memorex labels should be compatible with some of these programs.

I wish that I had better news.

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

Introduction

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
Theme).

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

printer.

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.
