Create a label from the stock database and customizing it's dimensions
Understanding a label's dimensions
You can visualize a label stock as a piece of paper containing a single or multiple labels. The labels can be torn off and pasted on physical objects for tagging and tracking purposes. A Page in Barcode & Label describes the paper's dimensions, whereas a Label describes each label's dimensions. It is common to find more than one label on a Single Page (paper) layout. If someone talks about a 5x2 label in the label industry, what they meant is a piece of paper with labels arranged in five rows by two columns grid, as shown in the diagram below.
With the understanding above, the following fields supported in Barcode & Label are quite self-explanatory.
- Page Width - Width of the Paper
- Page Height - Height of the Paper
- Left Margin - Distance from the left edge of the Page to the first label
- Top Margin - Distance from the top edge of the Page to the first Label
- Label Width - Width of the Label
- Label Height - Height of the Label
- Horizontal Space - Horizontal Spacing between labels from one column to the next column
- Vertical Space - Vertical Spacing between labels from one row to the next
