I am here to help.

PLEASE EMAIL ME at linda@lindafranz.com

If you have any questions at all about downloading, printing or using Inklingo, I can help.

If you write for help, I stop whatever I am doing and answer immediately, seven days a week, except when I am asleep, usually from about 11pm to 7am Eastern Time.

I am happy to help. In fact, the quilters I worry about are the ones who have questions but who don't contact me because they don't think anyone will answer.

I answer.

Making quilting more accessible with Inklingo is my passion. I want you to love it as much as I do.

Quilters like you have been spreading the word about how much they love using Inklingo, so there are many more Inklingoists every day.

Almost everyone reads the Download Instructions and is able to download AND open within about 10 minutes the very first time.

I applaud all of the quilters in their 70s and 80s who use Inklingo because they follow the instructions and rarely have a problem. It is often the "computer savvy" who get stuck.

About 10% do not read the Download Instructions and get error messages or nothing at all. That is a frustrating way to start with such a wonderful new tool.


The instructions say:

"The only software that will open Inklingo PDFs is Adobe Reader." 

Please believe it.

Some non-Inklingo PDFs open with

  • a browser (Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.)

or with

  • a different PDF viewer (Mac Preview, Microsoft PDF and others)

or with

  • other Adobe software (Flash, etc.)

or with

  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.)

or with 

  • your phone or tablet

 . . . but Inklingo PDFs don't. 


PRINTING with Inklingo has huge advantages for quilters.

Adobe Reader has the right print dialog box to make Inklingo your best quilting tool.

The copy protection and the SPECIAL PRINT DIALOG BOX used by Inklingo ONLY work with Adobe Reader. 

Adobe Reader is not perfect but it is the best for Inklingo, so we love it.

By the way, I agree that everything would be simpler without copy protection, but this is not a business without it. No one would be willing to work this hard, seven days a week, and not get paid. This is how I earn a living and when they think about it, I know quilters respect hard work and creativity and understand the need for a password.
