NEWS! - quick print labels for temp data

Sep 3 2023. App has a new feature to print labels for a temp row of data. Assume you have created a great label design and you just want to re-use it from time to time to print a sheet of labels for some new data, then this is a feature for you. Open your great design and use the "Print a temp row..." option in the main toolbar. This option will open a UX in which you can quickly enter data for all data columns used in the design and then print using the current design.

NEWS! - 'print selected row' feature'

Sep 2023 - App has a new nifty feature (requested by customers) that allows you to generate multiple copies of the same label for a selected row of data.

NEWS! - templates

June 2023 - you can now use template files to save or load commonly used designs.

A template specifies the selected sheet definition and the label design but no data.

You an apply a template when you create a new project or later.

You can save any project as a template for future use.

Applying a template on a project replaces the selected sheet definition as well as the current label design.

Note: you will have to re-assign columns to items in the design if the columns used in the template don't match the columns used in the current design.

You assign columns using the 'Assign column...' in the right mouse button menu, aka. the context menu.

This short video shows how to apply a template as well as how to create a new one.

Templates are stored on your local hard drive with the .labeltemplate extension.

NEWS! - formatting columns

May 2019 - you can now use formatting columns to custom format some barcode labels.

A column named 'Color' sets the color for each field in a label.

A column named '[datacolumn] Color' sets the color for the field [datacolumn], e.g. if you have a data column 'FirstName', use a column with header 'FirstName Color' to set the color.

You can use CSS color names or CSS #RRRGGBB color values - read more here:

In addition to Color you can use FontSize columns to set label specific font sizes.

See a sample Google Sheet using formatting columns here
