Starting Label

The starting label is the first label on your page, e.g. TLS100MT. Depending on your naming scheme, you can make Tape Label Studio automatically increment from the chosen starting point.

Tape Label Studio uses fixed (gray) and variable (blue) characters. While variable characters increment (0 – 9 if number, A – Z if letter) from right to left, fixed characters and the mediatype do not. You can toggle between fixed and variable by double-clicking on the desired character. Your next label in this example would be TLS101MT. If the last character was fixed (gray) it would be TLS110MT.

Please note: The number of text boxes (label characters) depends on the selected template. Templates may have different number of characters and may not use the media type.

Your Company wants you to print 50 labels for LTO 6 tapes. The labels should start with “COMP” followed by 2 incrementing characters starting with 0A and a mediatype of “L6”. Then your configuration should look like this:


The resulting labels would read like this: COMP0AL6, COMP0BL6, COMP0CL6, …, COMP1WL6, COMP1XL6.
