Justification with Headlines - 9/15/2016 12:55:03 PM

I have been using PrintMaster forever - always making sure I'm updated with the latest software.
We had to update our computers for Windows 10 due to CAD and I also had to update to PrintMaster v7.

WHAT HAPPENED TO JUSTIFICATION OF TEXT IN HEADLINES???
Our company logo was designed on PrintMaster 18. People thought we hired graphic designers! I did it watching tv.
Now I have v7 and cannot duplicate our logo because there is no justification allowed when using Headlines.

I have attached the difference (I had to add our PM18 logo as a .jpg.). I'm in trouble without the use of our logo.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Unfortunately, v7.0 cannot do what you want. A workaround is to make a separate headline for each line and shorten the width so that the characters maintain proportion. Apply a different gradient for each one. i.e. red to dark red, dark red to very dark red, very dark red to black.

For important business graphics such as logos, having them in a standard vector format such as SVG and high res raster format with transparent background such as PNG, is essential. These formats are then available for all graphic programs. SVG allows unlimited rescaling such that large format printing is ultra sharp - no pixelation.

The old versions of Printmaster can export as JPG and PDF. I don't like the JPG version because the edges aren't anti-aliased. The PDF version is smooth. With the right programs, it is then possible to import the PDF and create a PNG version.

Tip: In the old PM, remove the shadowing, save as PDF. This makes removing the white background easy in a standalone photo-editing program, and then shadowing can be reapplied. Then it can be saved as PNG which can be used in all your business documents.

Alternatively, if Photoshop Elements or Paintshop Pro is available to you, you can recreate your logo and save as PNG. I think the open source GIMP can also do it.

It appears that your website uses a different image than this one stored on the wix host. Interesting.
