I love my Printmaster! I have made a lot of projects using it. It is so easy to use. I had it since 8 years ago maybe. Only problem I have now is lately in the middle of finishing my project, it starts freezing and then I lose my work! Can somebody help?

I love my Printmaster 18.1 because it is so easy to use and to move around in. The only problem that I've had with it has been since I upgraded to Windows 10 at times I can't get it to download my cd. It constantly says "please wait while PM is being configured. But even with the glitch I still use my Printmaster each week to do our church bulletin and newsletter.
