Become familiar with the location of the feature and function keys. See Figure 1 on page 2. Upper and Lower Case The CAPS key toggles capitalization on and off. When CAPS mode is turned on, the CAPS indicator is shown on the display and all letters that you enter will be capitalized. When CAPS mode is off, all letters entered appear in lower case. The Display The LCD display shows a row of sixteen characters. However, you can enter up to 99 characters/spaces. The display is similar to a window that scrolls across the text. (See Figure 6.) The number of characters actually displayed can vary due to proportional spacing. Shift The Shift key, when used in combination with an alphabet key, changes the case of the selected letter. When used in combination with number keys or function keys, the Shift key selects the alternate function shown on the key. For example, when you press Backspace, the character to the left of the cursor is deleted; however, when you press ShiftBackspace together, the entire label text and formatting is deleted and the display is ready for you to type a new label. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog Figure 6 In addition, feature indicators appear on the display to let you know when a feature is selected. See Figure 7. Font Style Box/Underline Scrollbar Backspace The Backspace key removes the character to the left of the cursor. Shift-Backspace clears all the label text and formatting. Auto Cut # of Copies Mixed Formats Align / Justify Fixed Length CAPS Mode Multiple Lines Space Bar The Space bar inserts one blank space in your text. Cancel The Cancel key allows you to exit from a menu without making a selection or to cancel an action.

For example, if you repeatedly press the letter a, you will see a à á â ã ä å and so on through all the variations available. The order in which the character variations appear depends on the language you have chosen to use. Using Mixed Formats You can apply different fonts and format styles to the text on a label by dividing the label into blocks of text or pages. Each page is separated by a page break. The number of lines that can be added to a page is determined by the label width. You can add two page breaks to a label. Alignment, underline, box styles, and background patterns cannot be mixed on a label. These styles are common to the entire label. Currency symbols The currency key e also uses RACE to scroll through a number of currency symbols: e £ $ ¢ ¥ The order these symbols appear depends on the keyboard version and language you have selected. To add a page break 1. Enter and format text for the first page of the label. 2. Press Extra. 3. Use the arrow keys to select Insert Format Break and press OK. 4. Continue entering and formatting text for the next page of the label. Adding Symbols The labelmaker supports the extended symbol set as shown below. Using Tabs You can add tabs to a label to align text on multi-line labels. Tabs are left justified and the default spacing is 2.0” (50 mm). 7 LM350 WEU.qxd Row 12-11-2003 09:02 Pagina 8 3.

Serializing your Labels You can print a series of labels with the last number incremented by one number. The number of labels serialized depends upon the number of copies you selected to print. Only the last series of numbers that follows any letter, space, or punctuation will be serialized. For example, abc123 will print as abc123, abc124, abc125; and 123-998 will print as 123-998, 123-999, 123-1000, and so on. Figure 10 To add a symbol 1. Press Symbols.
