I want to make the layout for one label and then multiply it across or along the paper. Right now, I have to layout each one, a lot of tedious work.
Can you do step and repeat?
Select the number of times you want to replicate the label and the distance down in 1/10 mm (the number after the period is in 1/100 mm. This is more to avoid cumulating errors when repeating many fields). Here 5 and 100 across the paper and 4 and 200.5 along the paper. It takes the numbers from the data file across the paper first.
Limit 1: # of boxes across X # of boxes along is maximum 256 (512 in specially compiled program)
You can also place the first box at the bottom and enter as box distance across -100. This way, numbers go left to right on paper.
The result is below, you just multiplied the label by 5 across and multiplied by 4 along the paper.
Note grayed out fields. You can only move a box, when the multiplier is set to 0 or 1.
Please note also that one record of the data file represents one label in this layout
See the fileview below. It has 4 fields, the total length is 9+6+2+1=18.
Limit 2: the maximum number of fields here is 200.
Limit 3: # of boxes across X # of boxes along X number of fields is maximum 256 (600 in specially compiled program)
Limit 4: # of boxes across X # of boxes along X total length is maximum 2800 (10000 in specially compiled program)
Please note also that one record of the data file represents one label in the layout.
What if my data has more than one label per record ? Go to multi-field
Single field record in short
Multi-field single record
This is when you want to repeat more than 1 field in a data record. Below you see 3 fields to be printed. Note, it is important to define the fields in the order you want to print and only printable fields.
Which results in the right assignment below.
Multifield – Multirecords
If you are not sure whether the GtJet_108_receive version is right, you can go to d:/GT-Jet108 and type below. It will tell you the version of the GT controller this was compiled with, here 3.9 P56 which you can check in Windows/About. If not the same, copy it from d:/editorgt/runtime/binary/release
