Print layouts

This is a list of installed print layouts. Create, delete and edit layouts and choose the layout you want to be printed.

 

Print layout properties

Edit layout properties.

Name
Units
Orientation
Media Type (select disc or type of paper)
Printer page size (if this option is on, page setup will be retrieved from the selected printer)
Custom page size (if Printer page size is off, here you can edit custom paper size)

 

Labels

In this area you can add (+) or delete (-) individual labels and define their positions. Position can be Absolute (Top-Left), Aligned to other label or Absolute (Center). If you choose absolute (top-left) position, you should enter distance of label from left and top edges of paper.  Similarly, if you choose absolute (center) position, you should enter position of center of label. This is particularly useful when label size is set to From design. In that case, center of label will remain same regardless of size.

 

If you select aligned position, you will be able to select other label to align with. In this case, if you change position of one label, the other will be moved automatically.

 

Additionally, you can use a button to easily create a grid-like layout. Just define number of rows and columns, distances from paper edges and from each other, and software will automatically create a complete layout for you.

 

Grid layout

 

Before printing, use check boxes next to label names to turn off labels that you don't want to be printed this time.

 

Simple preview

Here you can see rough sample of printout. To see high quality preview click on Preview button.

 

LightScribe

By clicking on the LightScribe button, instead to the printer, your design will be sent to a LightScribe compatible device (if present on the system).
