Superscript and Subscript

These menu options let you quickly and easily superscript
or subscript text. The label printer automatically adjusts the
size of the superscripted or subscripted text to balance it
with the text to which it is appended.
Important! Note that the Dingbats, the special numbers
and the Greek and Russian characters of the SYMBOL menu
cannot be superscripted or subscripted.

Part 7 FORM Menu Functions

This part of the manual describes how to use the FORM menu
to layout your text exactly the way you want it on the label.
With the FORM menu, you can control character pitch, text
blocks, text alignment, and a wide range of other features.

Fundamentals of Label Layout

Before we actually begin our discussion about how to lay-
out a tape, we should first define a few terms. Note the fol-
lowing.
Blocks
A block is text that is enclosed between two block marks ( ).
Note that the first (far left) block does not require a block mark
at the beginning, and the last (far right) block does not re-
quire a block mark at the end. If there are no block marks, all
of the text is treated as a single block. You can individually
specify the length of each block, as well as the pitch and the
number of lines of inside each block.
Print Area
The print area is the actual area of a label that contains
printed text. It starts with the left side of the first character
printed, and ends with right side of the last character printed.
Side Spaces
The side spaces are blank areas that the Label Printer au-
tomatically adds on either end of the print area. Note that
side spaces are only added when you are using auto feed,
and they are not added when using manual feed.
Auto Feed (with side spaces)
Manual Feed (no side spaces)
Label Length
The label length is the print area, plus the side spaces.
Settings you make for side spaces, block spacing, and mir-
ror printing affect the entire label length.

Using the Layout Display

You can check the layout of your label at any time using the
layout display. The layout display shows all of the graphics
and text elements that make up your label to give you a
general idea of how the label is laid out.

To show the layout display

1. After laying out the label you plan to print, press
LAYOUT.

layout does not fit

2. If the label layout is too big to fit on a single display, use u
and i to scroll it.
• Pressing u returns to the top of the layout.
3. Press ESC to quit the layout display.
• You can view the actual appearance of the label using the
image display, which is described on page E-19.

Creating and Deleting Blocks

The following procedures describe how to create and de-
lete blocks. Later you will learn how can change certain
settings on a block-by-block basis.
