4dallison -> Editing Merged Text (12/18/2011 10:29:38 PM)

Hello. I'm working on creating envelopes from a mail merge.

Once the merged address is on the envelope, is there a way to edit the text?
I can change the font size, etc. of the text, but I can't edit the actual text.

I know I can make changes to the address in the Mail Merge Address Book, but it would be great to also be able to edit the the address right on my envelope.

Do you know if this is possible?

Hi Debra,

If your Address Book data was entered into MSAccess, then you created a mail merge project with MSWord, you would be able to edit any of the text during the Print process.

However, that is not possible with Print Shop 23.1 or any earlier version of Print Shop - because Print Shop does not allow changes to be made to Mail Merge names and addresses during the Print process.

Oh, ok. Is this an option in later versions of Print Shop?

No 4dallison,

No current version of either Print Shop or PrintMaster offers the ability to edit text during the Mail Merge process.

Wow. Ok, thanks for letting me know.

MS WORD allows me to edit :)
