In INEXTIA, labels are not locked in any way. Size and layout can be customized for your needs.
The idea is that the user is building a template in a Microsoft Word file, which will make it possible to use the design functions of Word and to test what the print will look like on the actual label.
First, a new document is created in Microsoft Word.
Then the paper size in the document is chosen, so that the size will fit the labels.
If the label format cannot be chosen from the list in Word, choose “More Paper Sizes…”. Then type in the specific size.
Please note: The margins should be very small, otherwise there is no room for the format.
Now the document should reflect the size of the label.
The document is then set up with the layout you want.
When setting up the label template, it is important that INEXTIA knows where data like name, location, QR code etc. should be placed on the label.
For this purpose, INEXTIA uses tags. This means that when the label is printed from INEXTIA, the system looks through the template. If it finds a tag it knows, it is replaced with data from INEXTIA.
Tags are inserted from the “Developer” tab in Word.
If the tab is not activated, it can be by following these steps:
- Right click on the menu.
- Choose “Customize the Ribbon…”.
- Check the box “Developer”.
- Click on “OK”.
The different tags are created from the “Developer” tab.
- Place the cursor where a tag should be inserted.
- Choose “Plain Text Content Control”.
Please note that when inserting a QR code, “Picture Content Control” is chosen.
- Choose “Design Mode”.
- Choose “Properties”.
The tag ID that fits the data is then inserted.
- Fill out the correct tag ID.
- Click on “OK”.
Tag IDs are found at the bottom of this article.
The process is continuing from here – set up your desired layout, insert the tags in the spots where INEXTIA should insert data.
An example of an item label printed form INEXTIA is seen below. Four tags has been used in the label.
A tag has been inserted in the description (Name). A tag has been inserted for the Item No. (ItemNo). A tag has been inserted for the location (LocationNo) and finally a tag has been inserted for the QR code (QRCode).
All four tags has already been filled out with data in connection with printing from INEXTIA.
Always remember to test whether the template looks as expected when printing from Word to the correct label printer.
If Word cannot print the label correctly, then INEXTIA will not be able to do so either.
A list of tag IDs that can be used is found below.
