Introduction
This User Guide provides step-by-step instructions for the Windows and Macintosh platforms. Any differences
in procedures or commands are noted in the text.
Features
Software
The DYMO Label Software includes many features that make it flexible and easy to use.
The LabelWriter has been integrated into Microsoft ® Word allowing you to print labels quickly and easily from
within Word. For Windows, the LabelWriter has also been integrated with Microsoft Outlook ® and Palm ™
Desktop.
Hardware
The LabelWriter uses advanced thermal printing technology to print on specially treated labels. This means you
will never have to replace toner, ink cartridges, or a ribbon to print labels.
1
Labels
The only supplies you will ever need for this printer are the labels. We recommend you only use DYMO-brand
labels. Using labels other than DYMO-brand labels may void your warranty.
When not in use, keep the labels stored in a cool dry place and in the black bag in which they were shipped to
prolong label life.
Installing the
LabelWriter
Follow the instructions in the Quick Start Card that was shipped with your LabelWriter to install the LabelWriter
hardware and software.

Design Toolbar
(Windows) In addition, the mouse pointer displays as a pencil object.
To start the Label Designer, do one of the following
n Open a new or existing label file. The Design toolbar automatically appears below the Main toolbar.
n With a label or template file open, click

17
Object Definitions
A label created in DYMO Label Software can contain various text and design objects. Each object has
certain attributes, such as size, position, font, etc. You can edit an object’s attributes simply by clicking the
object (or double-clicking if the Designer is active). You can then select the attributes that you want in the
dialog box that is displayed. For more information on modifying object attributes, see the online Help.
This section describes each of the objects available on the Design toolbar.
Text
The text object is useful for displaying information that remains unchanged every time you print a new label
(for example, “Hello my name is” on name badges or your return address on shipping labels). By defining
the text you are using as a preference setting and then copying the text into text objects, you are able to print
labels with information on them that is static.
Address
The address object is similar to the text object, but is designed to print information that changes with each
label printed, such as names and addresses.
Graphic
You can import many popular graphic formats using the graphic object. You can also copy and paste a
graphic from a graphics application (such as Microsoft Paint® or CorelDRAW® ).
18
If you defined a default logo file, the graphic file you specified is automatically displayed in any new
graphic objects you place. See „Default Logo File“ on page 27 for information about defining a
default logo file.
Lines
You can use the horizontal and vertical line objects to improve a label’s appearance.
Rectangle
The rectangle object, like the line objects, is primarily used as a design element to enhance a label’s
appearance.
Ellipse
(Macintosh) The ellipse object, like the line objects, is primarily used as a design element to enhance a
label’s appearance.
Bar Code
The bar code object displays and prints a bar code on your label. You can choose from many standard bar
code symbologies including Code 39, Code 128, Codabar, UPC A/E, EAN 8/13, ITF-14 and Interleaved 2 of
5 bar codes.
19
Counter
The counter object automatically numbers a series of labels.You can specify text you want to appear before
and/ or after the counter (for example, “Disk # of ten”), as well as the starting number and the increments for
counting (1, 10, 100, and so on).
Date-Time
The date-time object stamps the current date and/or time on labels using any one of a number of pre-defined
formats. DYMO Label Software offers a variety of date formats, including European formats. You can include
or exclude the time and use the 24-hour time format (13:00, 22:00, and so on).
Creating a New Label File
DYMO Label Software includes a blank label template for every type of available label. When you create a
new label, you select one of these blank labels as a starting point.
To create a label
1.
Click on the deign button
2.
Click
3.

nearly identical. The only difference is the tool button you select from the Design toolbar to place the
desired object.
To add an object
1.
Click the object that you wish to add on the Design toolbar.
2.
Place the object where you want it on the label using the cursor.
Click the Cancel/Select Object button on the Design toolbar to cancel object placement.

you place. See „Default Logo File“ on page 27 for information about defining a default logo file.
21
Moving and Resizing Objects
When you activate the Designer, you can use the mouse to drag objects where you want them to appear,
and increase or decrease their size. You can also rotate most types of objects.
Refer to the online Help for information on how to align objects, resize multiple objects at the same time,
and move objects in front of or behind other objects.
Saving the Label to a File

Using Lists with Variable Objects
You can use the List Manager to enter information into variable objects (address, variable text, or bar code) on
the current label. If the current label does not contain address objects, but contains more than one other type of
variable object, you need to select the object into which you want the selected List Manager entry to appear. In
this case, when you open the List Manager, a dialog box appears listing the available objects. Select the object
you want to link to the List Manager and then click the Close button.
Rotating Names in Address Lists
List Manager automatically sorts addresses by the last name.

address lists or data list files, respectively) into the new file.
A new list file is created with the specified name and stored in the default list file directory. The new file name
appears at the top of the List Manager dialog box.
Opening an Existing List
If you have more than one address or data list file, you can select the list you want to use to create labels. Also,
if you want to import addresses or data into a file, you must first open the file into which you want to import the
data.
For information on importing and exporting list data, see the online Help.

DYMO Label Software includes an add-in program that enables you to quickly print mailing labels from a
Microsoft Word document. You access the add-in using a tool the LabelWriter software installs on the Word
toolbar. The add-in works with Microsoft Word 97, 2000, and XP for Windows and Microsoft Word 98 and
2001 for Macintosh.
Installing the Word Add-In
When you select Add-In for Microsoft Word during installation of DYMO Label Software, the Word Add-in is
automatically installed as well. You will see a small LabelWriter button in the main toolbar of Microsoft
Word.
If you don’t see this button, you will need to reinstall the DYMO Label Software making sure that the Add-In
for Microsoft Word box is checked.
32
Using the Word Add-In
When the Word Add-in is properly installed, you will see the LabelWriter button in the main toolbar of Microsoft
Word.
To start using the Word Add-in
1.
Open Microsoft Word and type an address.
2.
Click
on the Word toolbar or select the DYMO LabelWriter command from the Tools menu.
The DYMO LabelWriter dialog box appears on the screen with the address from your document automatically
placed in the Recipient Address field.
If your letter contains more than one address and you want to make sure the Word Add-In uses the correct one,
select the address in your Word document before you click
.
33
Printing the Address
Once the DYMO LabelWriter dialog box appears, you can select from a number of different address and
shipping label templates, depending on how you want the label to look.
To print the label
1.
Select the desired label template from the Label Template box.
(Windows) Only the templates saved with the *.LWA extension will appear in the Label Template list.
2.
To change the address, edit the address in the dialog box.
3.

labels. You can modify these templates to suit your needs.
To modify a shipping label using the Word Add-in
1.
Choose a template from the Label Templates box in the DYMO LabelWriter dialog box.
2. Click
.
Refer to „Creating a New Label“ on page 6 for detailed instructions on editing a label template.
35
Add-In for Microsoft Outlook (Windows)
DYMO Label Software includes an add-in program that allows you to quickly print mailing labels and name
badges directly from Microsoft Outlook. You access the add-in using a button installed on the Outlook toolbar.
For complete instructions, see the online Help.
Add-In for Palm Desktop (Windows)
DYMO Label Software includes an add-in program that allows you to quickly print mailing labels and name
badges directly from Palm Desktop. You access the add-in using the DYMO Label button installed on the Palm
Desktop toolbar.

Using the Database Add-In (Windows)
DYMO Label Software includes a database add-in that enables you to print information from a variety of
databases onto labels. Once you install the add-in, you can quickly print address, shipping, file folder, and
other labels from the data in your database.
When selected, the database add-in is automatically installed when the DYMO Label Software is installed. You
access the database add-in from the Add-Ins menu in DYMO Label Software.
For complete instructions, see the online Help.
36
Printing Directly from Other Applications
At times you may want to print labels directly from another program to your LabelWriter, without using DYMO
Label Software or the LabelWriter add-ins. One example could be if you maintain address lists within Microsoft
Word or Access and want to print them all on labels without importing the list to the DYMO Label Software List
Manager.
Printing labels directly from applications like these is quite easy because the LabelWriter printers come with
standard printer drivers that work with virtually any application.
Detailed instructions on printing directly from Microsoft Word and Access can be found in the online Help.
Even if you are using a different application program than Word or Access, reading the instructions in the online
Help will give you an understanding of how to use the LabelWriter printer driver with your favorite program.
37
Chapter 6 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
This chapter describes how to take care of your LabelWriter and offers suggestions for identifying problems that
can occur when you use the LabelWriter printers. If you can’t solve the problem, this chapter also describes
how to contact DYMO for technical support.
