I need to upgrade the look of my daily printed specials and want to upgrade from my crummy Word document format. Don't really need to spend $400 for software like MenuPro, but would if I could find some endorsement for it. Anyone here with any experience with this, or any other design software (with the understanding that 80 hour weeks don't afford me the possibility of beating the learning curve of the likes of Adobe or Corel.) I've tried searching here quite a bit and don't see any real discussion on this. Thanks.
MenuPro menu printing software or the like???
I've used it for years, through three versions (computer died).
Get it. Menupro is a good program, will make you throw rocks at corel, adobe, or publisher.
Learning curve fairly easy, but you have to spend a little time with it. Once you decide on font, style, etc. there's not much to change.
It does everything for you automatically. Drag and drop, the whole nine yards.
I don't use half of what it can do, but one of these days......
You'll have it figured out before you can get any of these others to begin to make sense. Besides, it only does one thing, the menus.
All you have to do once you have your menu printed is to go in and change prices, then print out the menu pages.
The only thing I don't like about it is that it's too cumbersome if you want to do different menus such as breakfast, lunch and dinner and specials. There is only one list of food items, and all those items add up quick.
This is why I frequent this site, for such helpful posts like this.
