Trouble With Label Creator


Dan R S
 Share

Question

I have a cd label which contains several text boxes. I have used this label with several versions of Creator. Now I have 2012. Now when I make a change in one of the text boxes, it changes the text in all of the boxes on the label. I have discussed this with support and their suggestion was to uninstall and reinstall the program. I did this and there has been no change, it still places the changes in all of the text boxes. Is there a hot key or some command that I have accidently enabled? Any ideas? (Win 7 64 bit system)

In what version were the original Label Creator projects created, in which were they last used before C2012?

 

In general, projects created in earlier Roxio versions do not work correctly if at all in the latest Roxio version. Although it has been reported that jwl project files from C2010 on do work with C2012.

The project was created probably in Creator 5, some years ago, anyway. So if I understand this correctly, even though the project is a .jwl, since it was put together before Creator 10 or 12, it will not work correctly in the 2012 version. Apparently Roxio does not have a fix for this and it will be necessary to re-create the project in 2012 in order for it to work correctly. Perhaps I might be better off to just uninstall 2012 from my win 7 machine and use one of my XP machines with an older version of Roxio in order to print out the project. It seems a waste of money and effort to upgrade to 2012 if it is not going to work with files created in older versions of Creator. Win 7 has put in issues which affect a number of software products. I guess that includes Roxio. What do you think?

Like to see a Screen Cap of that (HERE) showing the before - during - after :lol:

 

Never heard of such a thing :huh:

Hi Jim, I had never seen this before either until I made a correction in one of the text boxes, hit enter, then saw every text box changed to the same thing. Example, one text box on the label contains a letter of the alphabet. When I changed the letter from "A" to "C" and hit "enter", then every text box on the label was changed to the letter "C". I would send you a printout of it, but for now I have uninstalled it from my machine and am using another machine to do my printing from. If you think you may have a solution for this, I can re-install it on my Win 7 machine and send it to you. For now, I am just using an XP machine which contains an older version and it works fine. I was just in the process of upgrading my office to Win 7. Perhaps some things are better left alone - if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Dan,

 

Roxio has never made a point of provding backwards compatibility for saved .JWL project files between versions of its labeling program. You could get some use in version 6 from version 5 .jwl files, and sometimes you could load them into version 6 or even a slightly later version but the results vary and nothing was guaranteed.

 

I am still running the Jewel Case Creator from version 5 as a standalone in Windows 7 to print v5 .jwl files.

I just copied the v5 program directories from a backup, and it runs.

 

Between Easy Media Creator 10.0 and 10.5 the Roxio Label Creator program [Create Labels, Advanced] was re-written, and nothing made with 10.0 or earlier could be used with 10.5 or later.

 

However the program hasn't been changed much since 10.5, so .jwl files from EMC 10.5 through Creator 2009, C2010, C2011, and C2012 seem to be interchangeable. There are no promises the program won't change again in future versions, though.

 

Does this help with your decisions?

 

Regards,

Brendon

Hi Brendon,

 

Thanks for the information. That helps me go from here. I have ver 5 on one of my other units so I will just use that machine when I need to print out the labels. It's a shame that Roxio does not make their software backward compatible, but that's their choice and now at least I can make an educated decision about buying any more of their products. I appreciate your time and help. Have a good day.

 

 

Dan
