What's new in LabelWizPro?
So many new features have been added to enhance label design and functionality that we changed the name to LabelWizPro. Here's a brief rundown of what's new:
  • LabelWizPro uses Sesame 2.0's powerful XResultSet technology to print labels transparently in the background. Printing a large quantity of labels, including Queued labels (and optionally auto-unqueuing them) is now easier and faster.
     
  • Each label line can now be individually fonted (any font in your system), sized (from 6 to 40 points), styled (bold, italic, all caps, underline or any combination), aligned (left, right or center), custom-spaced and colored. This gives you more control over the appearance of your labels and supports highly sophisticated label designs. Now even complex, colorful labels, name tags and badges can be designed and printed with LabelWiz.
     
  • You can now add solid graphic lines to your labels in virtually any position, length, thickness and color. Optional label frames can be printed in color, too.
     
  • New options make it easier to have LabelWiz close up empty lines and spaces.
     
  • Three new options have been added to deal with lines where the merged values are too long to fit the label width. Auto-Downsize reduces the font size of the line until it fits. Auto-Truncate truncates the line to fit. Auto-Prompt lets you edit a long line on-the-fly, so you can change a lengthy title like Manager, Equal Employment Opportunity Compliance Section to something shorter as your labels are printing.
     
  • There's a new Shift Image Right control on the Options tab you can use to move your image to the right in small increments. This lets you center the image on the label or slide it all the way over to the right.
     
  • The ZIPCode field no longer has to be the last merge field on the label for Postnet barcoding. You can make a PostNet barcode print most anywhere on the label no matter where the ZipCode prints.
     
  • Barcodes other than Postnet are now supported. You can add UPC, 3 of 9 or other barcodes to make scannable price labels for products or scannable security badges.
     
  • Two new tabs Use ASCII and Use Database have been added to the LabelWiz design screen. Use ASCII lets you print labels right from the Label Designer using most any delimited ASCII (export) file as your data source. Use Database lets you sort and print labels for selected records in any database in any Sesame application by mapping the database's fields to your LabelWiz merge fields. These powerful new options mean you don't have to add the LabelWiz programming and print button to all the forms from which you want to print labels. You can optionally do all your label printing right from the same LabelWiz interface where you design your labels.
     
  • A new Label Notes field has been added for freeform notes about the label. These notes/instructions/reminders are optionally displayable when the label has been selected for printing.
     
  • Other internal enhancements, such as a much higher positioning and printing density, provide more accuracy and sharper label text.
     
  • LabelWizPro imports your old LabelWiz label definitions and upgrades them to the new format.

How LabelWizPro Works
LabelWizPro gives you several options for integrated label/badge printing in Sesame.

Here are the basics in a nutshell:

First, you design your label or badge in the LabelWiz designer, which itself is a Sesame application.  (See the screens at the top of this page.) LabelWiz comes with more than 140 of the most popular label and badge templates. You simply choose Add Data just like any Sesame database, click the Import Label, button, choose your label or badge, and LabelWiz imports all the specifications for you. You then add your merge fields, specify your fonts and font sizes, and you're done. Of course you have lots of options to spiff up your labels, but for basic mailing and shipping labels, you'll find the LabelWiz designer a snap to use.

You can use LabelWiz as a standalone Sesame application (as it comes) or you can merge it into any Sesame application you already have. By having it in your application, you can edit your label designs or add new ones without having to open the LabelWiz application.

To link LabelWiz to a particular database form, just follow the easy directions that come with it. It takes about 10 minutes and there's no programming to write. You'll then have a Print Labels button on your form, along with an optional Queue Labels checkbox that lets you queue records for label printing at a later time. When you click the Print Labels button, LabelWiz prompts you for the label sheet to use, the starting label position to print to and the printer to print to (if you have more than one). LabelWiz lets you print a label for just the current record, for all queued (checked) records, or for all the records in the current result set. It doesn't take any know-how to use LabelWiz this way. Even someone who knows nothing at all about LabelWiz can run label/badge-printing jobs with ease.

You can optionally use the LabelWiz designer itself as your label printer. It has the ability to print labels and badges using the data from any Sesame database and most any kind of delimited ASCII file. With the ASCII file option, you can print labels from an outside source, such as a list of names and addresses from a vendor. You don't have to import the data into a Sesame database in order to print labels.

Sample label sheets

Below: Part of an Avery 8164 (6 Up) label/badge sheet printed by LabelWizPro. This is gaudy example,
but it demonstrates the degree of sophistication you can impart to your labels/badges. You can add
an  image, colored frame/box (in a variety of shapes), colored lines and centered text. A  label/badge
can include up to 16 lines of merged text, unmerged fixed text and graphic lines and barcodes.

sold items from inventory
