Moving Forward to Version 2.10 and 2.50

In the past, almost three years, Envelope Printer has come a long way from the original version.  I am overwhelmed with the number of users of this tiny little program that I wrote to use in my office.  I figured there would be a few individuals that could use the program and posted it to various Free-ware and software download websites.  To date, there have been over 50,000 downloads of this niche market application.   I have no idea how many people actually use the program on a day-to-day basis but given the number of emails I get about this product it is actually quite a few.

In the coming months I am going to be introducing a new version of Envelope Printer.  At that time there will be a standard version and a PRO version. 

The purpose of todays post is this:
I am in the process of "crippling" the current version 2.00 and it will be released as version 2.10.  The PREVIOUS VERSION 2.00 will no longer be available and if you have it you DO not want to change to the new versions.   Version 2.10 is only for people who are downloading for the first time.

I am going to be removing the ability to change Font sizes for the Sender and To addresses, along with removing the Print Preview option.  These are going to be options for the Version 2.50 PRO along with MULTIPLE ADDRESS BOOKS and the ability to save different envelope print location sets.

So here is the DEAL!  

If you do not need the ability to have multiple address books, or to save different envelope print location sets, then I recommend that you do not update from version 2.00 to 2.10.  Keep version 2.00 with the ability to print preview and change fonts.  In fact, regardless of whether you need these features or not, just wait for version 2.50.  Again, Version 2.10 is really only for new downloaders of the program.

I DO encourage everyone to upgrade to version 2.50 when it comes out and purchase the PRO version.  The price will be $8.99 and will go a long way towards encouraging me to continue support and developement of Envelope Printer. 

Again, in Version 2.5 you will get these features:
  • Multiple Address Books, 1 book per Return Address
  • Set Font for Sender/(Return Address
  • Set Font for Addressee/To Address
  • Print Preview
  • Ability to print MULTIPLE copies of the same envelope
  • Ability to print MULTIPLE copies of the envelopes with just a return address
  • Ability to add a .jpg, .png, .bmp image to the left of the return address
Along with all of the original features:
  • File Menu
  • Quick Link Toolbar
  • Clear Fields
  • Double-Click Select name feature
  • Zipcode lookup now performed on the first 5 digits entered into Zipcode field so that Zip+4 can be used
  • Keyboard Shortcuts
  •  Blue Hints (toggle on/off)
  •  Red Help Text
  •  Program Optimization
  •  New partial name search feature
  •  New "DELETE" name/address feature
  •  Easier to use Printer Selection
  •  On-screen help for all user input fields
