Serial Numbered Labels!

The latest feature I have added is the ability to generate unique serial numbered labels. So far this is only on the single label layout, but this can be expanded in the future.

Serial Number Label ScreenHow it works is that you set up your serial numbers how you like; add a prefix or a suffix like the example above, pick your start number (required) and # of digits.   You can set the font, size and weight here which will only affect the serial numbers in this batch.  Set your label count and save to the list.  When the labels are generated they will come out like this:

Starting the Labelmaker

Here is how to start the labelmaker the first time you download it:

After downloading the labelmaker, double-click the file to start Microsoft Word.

You will be prompted to enable macros – to trust the document.  You will also have to enable editing of the document in order to unlock the labelmaker routine.  This will vary slightly between Word versions 2010, 2013 & 2016.

Once this is done…

Windows 2010, 2013, 2016/Mac 2016: click on the Add-ins tab on the ribbon, then click the Create Labels link

Mac 2011: Click on the Create Labels button that appears near the top left.

The start screen will pop up and you can proceed from there.
