These two programs only share the name Printmaster. Each was developed independent from the other. They can run alongside each other just fine. They are not compatible with each other. Projects created in one cannot be opened in the other.
Guess I have another question my wife who is the one who actually uses Printmaster says she can't figure out how to import things. Normally programs give you that option under "File" but it's nowhere to be found. Can someone explain?
This program does not import any files. No projects made in any other program can be imported. You can only add graphics such as JPG and PNG into a new or ready-made project. As suggested by Jason, your wife can create a JPG in the old program. The JPG can be added to a project in the new program. Treat the JPG like you would a photo.
Sorry guess I'm not explaining the issue very well. I do understand you must convert graphics into JPG before using with PrintMaster 8.
The problem my wife is having is v8 is just enough different from v11 that she can't figure out the steps to import graphics. She says the same exact procedure/steps in 11 isn't available in v8. Could someone provide the steps?
V8 is a completely different new program. As such, it is essential to learn it using the Printmaster v8 user guide which is relevant to it. PMv11 is not only irrelevant to learning v8, it is a hinderance. Completely different interface.
To add Printmaster art from the Clipart Gallery, click the Clipart button. This also brings you to the option to add other art you have stored on your computer by clicking Browse other...
If your wife wants to mass import graphics from the old program's Art Gallery, into the new program's Art Gallery, that is not possible, except by individually saving each graphic as JPG. Then add a desired JPG to a project as needed.
