This sets the typeface for the text labels. It also applies to text in dimensions, on generic products and products in the database that use the box shape without picture.

Font height


This sets the text size for text labels. For example make the text smaller to fit the label text on your products.

You can also set the font size interactively. See Font Size.

Bay style

Show label displays the name of each bay on a label strip as shown below. Please see Bay Name to find out how to assign names to the bays.


Product style

box & label displays products as simple boxes with their caption printed on the front face:



shape & label displays products with their 3D shape, picture and a caption printed as a label strip:



Group labels combines labels for groups of adjacent same products.

When using Group labels with the box & label style, labels are grouped only vertically (ex: product no5) to help identify the products visually and prevent confusion since there is no visible product picture (ex: product no14):



When using Group labels with the shape & label style, a single label is displayed for adjacent same products:



Label Position defines the vertical position of labels relative to each product.

The following positions are available:

Tip: Combined with the shape & label product style, the On shelf/peg label position resembles the way labels are physically placed in stores.


Label color sets the color of the label background.

Label text color sets the color of the label text.


See below some examples of label positions and color combinations:


Label position: On shelf/peg



Label position: Top



Label position: Center

You can choose and combine information to display on the product labels:

Position shows a label with the product position on the bay indexed from left to right, top to bottom. In reports, these numbers can then be published in Report Pictures and used in conjunction with numbers displayed in the Report List to easily identify items in the list and the picture.



Reference displays products with their unique reference printed on the front face.

Name displays products with their name printed on the front face.
