Does anybody have any software suggestions as an option to Print Shop? Recent switch and used Print Master in the Windows World. Looking for something that has searchable clip art library and good layout freedom with layers. Print is missing the ability to insert a table. I'm eager to hear any suggestions.

I think what you are using is just a very simple sort of layout program for making cards, am I right? Immediately I thought "use indesign, thats what it's for." Of course I also realize that most people don't have Indesign so I moved on. Then it occurred to me that there was probably an open source alternative, and I was right. http://www.scribus.net/ Check it out. I have never used it but it would seem it has all the power you need and more.
