What Does It Do?

This program allows you to create your own customized convention cards and print them using a color or black and white printer (the ACBL approves of cards printed in black and white as long as you highlight the alertable areas in red and the announcable areas in blue).

Using the program you can fill out the convention card the same way you fill out the paper one now. You can write text into the blanks, fill in check boxes, and circle suit symbols and opening leads. After you have filled out a card you can save it in a convention card library where you can retrieve it at a later date to modify and print.

This program also allows you to do the following:

Allows information to be entered directly on the card instead of on forms.

Place text, checkboxes, and rectangles anywhere on the card.

Place card icons anywhere on the card.

Erase any areas of the card.

Change colors and fonts while viewing the card, and see the results immediately.

Move (drag and drop text fields and check boxes).

Change the font (style, size, bold, and italic) of individual text fields.
