Labeljoy organizes labels in Groups, which are containers for one or more labels. You can have more than one group per job, and create complex printing jobs.

Each group can contain Barcode, Text and Graphic elements that display whatever is needed to create the desired labels. All elements added to a specific group will then be replicated on all labels belonging to that particular group.

In the Group settings dialog box you can define the Copy number you need for a specific group, or link that group to an external data source so the label elements can be linked to specific fields of the selected data source (only for the Full version).

The layout determines the position and size of the labels on paper. Labeljoy will replicate the same elements (with different characteristics when connected to a data source) many times on a single sheet in case the layout defines more than one column or row (for example with multiple label adhesive sheets), or print only one position per sheet (for example with envelopes).

Element editing will take place through a specific setting dialog box specific for each type of element being edited. For example, setting properties for a Barcode element will take place through a setting dialog box organized in tabs that will contain all customizable aspects of a barcode element, such as the type of barcode, the back color, the size, etc.

Each editing window has 3 buttons that enable you to apply or cancel the changes made. These buttons are:

  • OK: by clicking this button, all changes made will be applied and the dialog box will be closed.
  • Apply: this button applies the changes made but does not close the editing dialog box. This way you will be able to make further changes to the selected element.
  • Cancel: this button will close the editing dialog box and will roll back the element editing status to the way it was before the editing window was opened, even if the Apply button was clicked.

You will also always find in the lower left side a help icon that will enable you to show this help guide, opened to the page related to the current application context.
