Exporting a label to an eps file

Post by AnnieF » Mon Nov 18, 2019 12:31 pm

Hi,

I recently started using NiceLabel 2019 and I was wondering if it is possible to export a label to a .eps file.

Ultimately, my plan is:
- user uploads excel file to a folder
- trigger is activated, each EAN code in the file will be applied to a label
- the label is then exported as a .eps file and saved somewhere (either database or somewhere in the files)


I've tried searching the forums & google but I could only find very old resources that don't apply to this version.
Thanks in advance :)

That feature in the Software was removed from the software as of NiceLabel 2017. We do have options in the automation software to save the file as a JPEG, BMP, PNG or PDF file.

Annief,

We'd recommend opening a support case as well https://www.nicelabel.com/support/technical-support

Thanks for your answer.

How would I go about doing that via the automation software?
I can't find any actions for saving the label

Annie,

You would use the Preview label action
previewlabel.PNG
previewlabel.PNG (9.79 KiB) Viewed 4606 times
Which allows you to find a file or have it be dynamic. Please note that this feature is only available in automation enterprise.

Annief,

You can look at this sample for a reference of how it could be done (this sample saves a preview and sends it back to an HTTP client
C:\Users\Public\Documents\NiceLabel 2019\Automation\Samples\Label Preview as HTTP Response

Thanks for your help!
Unfortunately my company doesn't have the enterprise edition so I guess I'll have to ask for that :)
