My father in law bought PrintMaster v6 Platinum and is driving us all nuts.
He had an older version that allowed him to do a quarter fold greeting card on A4 sized paper.
This version doesn't appear to allow him to work in metric either.
Is there a way to make the program work in metric sizes and use A4 paper?

File | Print Setup... brings up the Page Setup box where you can select A4 paper.

Edit | Preferences... brings up a box where you can click on the Guides/Ruler button. This brings you to a drop down menu where you can choose metric.

...a quarter fold greeting card on A4 sized paper.

Start a new project "Create From Scratch". Choose Greeting Cards for your Project type and then select Quarter-fold from the drop down menu. I recommend selecting A4 from the Print Setup *before* you add your design to the project. That avoids things shifting around when the page size gets changed.





I am using a slightly different version of the program, so I apologize if my screen captures do not accurately depict what your program shows. Also, PrintMaster v6.0 was developed for a newer operating system and separately from the version your father-in-law is used to. Because it is completely different, I highly recommend "forgetting" everything you know from the old version, and look through the new User Manual (Click the program's Help button to take you there). It will just be frustrating to try to operate v6.0 as if it were v18.

There are 204 pre-designed quarter-fold cards which are easily found when selecting Greeting Cards and typing "quarter fold" in the search box. This program can also convert all the half-fold cards into quarter-fold, so you really have 1584 card designs available!




Although these quarter-fold cards say "requires 8.5x11 paper stock", the design converts over to fit A4 when you change the size. A bit of resizing/repositioning of elements may be needed to compensate for the change of size.

You're welcome. Tell him it'll go easier if he approaches this new program as having nothing to do with his old one. The "old" way doesn't apply and will just cause frustration.
