Database Text Field auto-populate direction

Post by jclgan » Thu Apr 04, 2019 9:09 pm

Hi all,

Using NiceLabel Standard 6.5.1 (Build 13365). I was wondering if there is a way to change the order in which database text fields are populated across a label sheet? Currently, it fills label fields across rows (like your typical Western text input). However, is there a way to make the label fields populate vertically (i.e., down a column), then across the page? So instead of, say:

1 | 2 | 3
4 | 5 | 6
7 | 8 | 9

the labels would be filled

1 | 4 | 7
2 | 5 | 8
3 | 6 | 9

Thanks in advance for any support or insight.

Jclgan,

Unfortunately, there is no way to do that in Nicelabel 6. However, in Nicelabel 2019, you can set the processing order of a multi-up label

Hi Kyle,

Thanks for the quick response. Is this feature available in the Express version or Pro only?
