Adjust Print Position (Hang Tags):

Use the Margins and Row-Space settings (on the Bar-Code Print-Settings Screen) to properly align print position. (Record the correct settings for future reference.)
Access the Bar-Code Print-Settings Screen by selecting 'Bar Codes on Avery Stock' in the Style Section of the Labels Screen.
Print-adjustment settings for most ink printers are: left .3", top .1", right .5", bottom .5". Row space is 1.04". Rows should be 10 and Columns should be 3.
When using a partially-used sheet of labels, enter the # of the next available label to the right of 'Start printing at this label #'.
Check 'Bar Code Quantity = Inventory Quantity' to print labels for the number of items in inventory.
Bar Codes are printed on hang tags by default. If barcodes are not desired, uncheck 'Check this box to include barcodes...' in Program Setup (Printers).
Instructions for printing hang tags are the same as for printing sheets of labels. The difference is that after selecting the items for hang tags, the option to print hang tags is selected:
Hang Tags include Item ID (which is the Consignor ID plus Item #), Category, Description and Price. Options may be selected in Program Setup (Inventory) to include Date In, the Discount Schedule (prices only) and Disposal Codes.
