power source.
To connect the power adapter
1. Plug the power adapter into the power connector
on the top, left side of the labelmaker.
2. Plug the other end of the power adapter into a
power outlet.
Make sure the labelmaker power is turned off
before you disconnect the power adapter from the
main power source. Otherwise, your most recent
memory settings will be lost.

Adding Symbols
You can apply different fonts and format styles to
the text on a label by inserting format breaks to
divide the label into blocks or sections of text. You
can add two format breaks allowing you to apply
three separate formats per label.
The labelmaker supports the extended symbol set
as shown in Figure 12.
Alignment, underline, box styles, and
background patterns cannot be mixed on a label.
These styles are common to the entire label.
To add a symbol
1. Press Symbols . The first row of symbols shown
in the table appears in the display.
2. Use the arrow keys to move to the desired
symbol. The left and right arrows move
horizontally along a row of symbols. The up and
down arrow keys scroll vertically through the
rows of symbols.
To quickly see a row of symbols, you can press
the letter corresponding to the row you want.
3. When you locate the desired symbol, press OK
to add the symbol to your label text.
Adding International Characters
The labelmaker supports the extended Latin
character set using RACE technology. Similar to
using a mobile phone keypad, if you type a letter
multiple times within a very short time, you will
scroll through variations on that letter.
For example, if French is selected as the language
and you repeatedly press the letter a, you will see a
à â æ and so on through all the variations
available. The character variations and the order in
which the variations appear depend on the
language you have selected to use.
Currency Symbols

through a number of currency symbols:
The order these symbols appear depends on the
language you have selected.

Printing a Fixed Label Length
Normally, the length of the label is determined by
the length of the text entered. However, you may
wish to make a label for a specific purpose that is a
fixed length regardless of the length of the text.
You can specify a fixed length for a label in 2 mm
(0.1”) increments between 40 mm (1.5”) and
400 mm (15.0”). The preset fixed length is 100 mm

the text in small print underneath the barcode. You
can optionally add text before and after the
barcode. Or, you can add text above or below the
barcode by creating a two-line label. See Creating
Multi-Line Labels on page 8.
Four of the standard barcodes require a fixed
number of characters to generate the barcode:
