Exporting labels

exporting labels

By clicking the Export/Labels... menu the Export labels form is displayed.

The left pane displays a list of all label groups found in the current job. For the most times, this list will only show a single item with the name of the current label group. The names listed here are the ones found in the Main tab of the Label group properties form.

The right pane displays a preview of the label group that will be exported.

In the lower end are two combo boxes that enable you to define the format and the quality of the generated images:

  • Export format: select the image format to be used to generate the images. Note that the bitmap format is a non-compressed format and will generate files of much larger size compared to all other formats.
  • Export quality: select the DPI resolution (Dot Per Inch) to be enforced in the generated images. The higher the selected value, the higher the size of the resulting images and the required processing time.

Lastly, at the bottom of the form is the Open target folder after export check box, which, if checked, will automatically open a new Explorer window at the end of the exporting procedure of the folder in which the images were exported.

If the label being exported contains non-static elements, such as texts containing data fields, or barcodes containing counters, etc, then the export operation will generate multiple files, one for each label.
Also, if a data source is found, a Microsoft Access 2003 (.mdb) file will also be generated, containing the data source and an additional field that will contain the path and the file name of each generated image file.
