Create custom stock size

Post by JasonWilliams » Thu Jul 26, 2018 5:30 pm

This may be a silly question, but I can't find where to manage and add new custom stocks.

Using NiceLabel Powerforms 2017.

Many thanks.

Jason,

Unfortunately, the option for adding custom stocks is not available in Nicelabel 2017. You would need to design your label to the stock size that you have.

Thanks,

Hi Jason

Kyle is right. Currently we don't have any editor for customizing stocks. If you're really in a need for editing stocks there is a database file which holds the stocks. Its located here: "c:\ProgramData\NiceLabel\NiceLabel 2017\Stock.db"

If you want to edit is you will need to download a SQLite database editor (like SQLiteSpy for instance) and update the database.

One thing to notice here... when you'll update the software with a new version you'll have to update the stock.db file again. So I suggest you make a copy.

Kind Regards,
Damjan

This is beyond ridiculous. Especially since it was an included option in NiceLabel 6. We rely heavily on custom stocks and having it broken in your "upgrade" is unacceptable. You have essentially prevented us from ever upgrading to the new version.

What are you saying, it's been a long time.
