Dymo Label Software v.8.5.2 for Mac OS X (Yosemite Update)

Be aware that the installation time may vary according to the age of your Mac. 2 of our older Mac's (2010 and 2011 models) took longer than 10 miutes for the software to install. They appeared to be stuck at the point where the installer said "running package scripts" - ur advice is to just let the installer do it's thing and eventually the installation process will complete itself

This document contains important information that is not included in any other DYMO Label documentation. It highlights changes in system requirements, new features, and known problems. Please read this document carefully!

This release includes:
• Support for OS X Yosemite


Operating System Support : Mac OS X v10.5 and later (Intel Only)


DYMO Label v.8 requires that you have Mac OS "Administrator" level permissions to install a printer. You MUST be able to modify files in the System folder to install and configure a LabelWriter printer.

NOTE: Do not connect the USB cable to your computer or USB hub until instructed to do so during the software installation. If you have a label printer already installed, disconnect the USB cable from your computer before running the installer and reconnect the cable when instructed to do so.

Manually Installing a Label Printer

Mac OS X v10.5 and later
1. Make sure your label printer is plugged in and turned on.
2. Open System Preferences for Print & Fax (Printers & Scanners).
3. Click the + button under the Printers list.
4. Select your label printer from the Printer Name list, and then click Add.
The printer is added to the Printers list.
5. Close the Printer Preferences dialog to complete the installation.

LabelWriter Duo Notes
• The LabelWriter Duo printer does not support Rendezvous. You will not be able to locate a LabelWriter Duo printer with Rendezvous.
• Printing to both the LabelWriter Duo Tape and Label printers at the same time is not recommended.

NOTE: In some cases, you may not see your printer model listed in the Printer Setup utility or the Add button may be disabled. If this occurs, exit and restart the Printer Setup Utility.

Add-In Support for Microsoft Office
DYMO Label v.8 supports add-ins for Microsoft Word and Excel in Microsoft Office 2004, 2008, and 2011.

Installing DYMO Label Add-Ins

Office 2008 and later
To install and use the add-ins for Office 2008 and later, you must run Word and Excel at least once BEFORE installing DYMO Label v.8. This allows the Microsoft Office first run processing to create the add-in script folders.

Office 2004
DYMO Label v.8 must be installed on an administrator account for the Office 2004 add-ins to work.

IMPORTANT: DYMO Label v.8 must be installed for each user
DYMO Label v.8 must be installed for each user account that will use the software. For example if you install the software as Administrator and then login to a different account, you must install DYMO Label v.8 on that account.


Microsoft Office 2004
To use the DYMO Add-In for Microsoft Office 2004, you must have Microsoft Office Service Pack 1 installed. If you do not have Service Pack 1 installed, you will not be able to see the Add-in button in the Word toolbar. You can download the latest Service Pack for Microsoft Office, free of charge, from the Microsoft Web site. If you do not have Service Pack 1 or later installed, you will see the message "An unexpected error occurred while trying to load the Microsoft Framework library."
