Enabling Individual Copies and Form Feeds for Labels

Posted: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 0 comment(s)
 
This has been another community suggestion from our Idea Place. Until version 26, you could only have one copy count for labels. This means that the same number of copies were printed for each and every label. In version 26 you can now adjust this individually, based on the data in your data source.

For a simple walkthrough let's assume we want two copies of every label where the item price exceeds 2000 EUR and just one of all the other items. Then simply use this formula for the label copy count project parameter:

Cond(Item.UnitPrice>2000,2,1)

And the result is then:

Enabling individual label copies

Note how two labels are printed for all items matching the condition while all others are just printed once. And while we were at it, we also added a project parameter that enables a form feed for labels, i.e. you can switch to a new sheet based on an arbitrary condition. Small additions that enable things that were hardly possible before – or even not at all.
