Custom Job Labels

Job Labels

Layout has default 4 labels:

You can add custom labels to this list.  Labels can either be generated from the RIP by selecting from a list of predefined options or they can be customised in Editor.

A: Job labels created in RIP

  • Go to File -> Generate Job Label and all variables to include in a label are shown:

  • Name the label and select the variables you wish to include.  You can also include a logo or .pdf with some text.

B.  Create Custom Labels in Editor

  • Create a label in Editor:
    • make a placeholder
    • add content: text or image
    • Save this file out as a .aur file
  • In Software Manager, you can import the label.
  • Close Layout and re-open and the label will show in the drop down menu.

Alternatively, you can Export a label from SW manager, open it in Editor, amend, save under a new name and import.

A label you create for Layout can include any of the variables shown in Generate Job Label in the RIP.  Ensure the string respects all spaces and Capitals.
