To add a new label simply drag and drop it to the template. To change it's size drag on of it's corners. To change it's position, click on the label and drag it to the position you require. You can also use the arrow keys to move the label.

Please Note: The Image control is for a static image, such as your company logo. You can not place an image of the stock item on the label.

Editing a Label Object

To edit a label object double click on it. A new box will appear where you can edit the label. Fig 3.1 

From the above screen you can edit the labels Font, Font Colour, Fill, Text Alignment, Borders.

You can insert variables from the Variable menu. Variables are dynamically created tags that generate text about the order. For example if you wanted to insert the stock item SKU, you would choose Item Number from the variables menu. This would insert the following tag [{ItemNumber}] which would display the stock item SKU when the label is printed.

Another feature of labels is you can display a barcode of the text youhave inserted or the text generated by a variable. This can be very useful if you wish to have order numbers with barcodes. The barcode it self is a 3 of 9 variable length barcode.
