BSI provides basic support for printing labels in label formats developed for use with the following: Brady Corporation's CODESOFT ™ (on both a single computer and a network), Labwriter or Bartender. Like the rest of BSI, this service is comprised of manager and editor windows. The manager provides a list of label formats available for printing and offers ways to modify the contents of this list. The editor accepts the data that will be encoded on the label format the user selects from the manager.
There are several ways to print out labels. Labels can be printed from an editor by selecting the Print Labels option from the Current Label's column header menu or from the Print Labels icon on the toolbar. Labels can also be printed out from a report that has an Interactive Table format. A default label template can be specified using the preferences.
For information on how to print labels directly to a designated printer using a printer's IP address, see IP Label Printing.
When creating a label file in CodeSoft, the associated printer must be selected. For the .POF and .lab files created using CodeSoft, only files associated with printers supported by BSI can be used to print labels from the client. Since Labwriter is used to print directly onto slides, this label printing type will only work with the SlideMate™ printer. Printing using .btw Bartender files will work with any label printer.
Users must have permission to access this module, though all users can print labels from applicable tables and editors across BSI.
