These are the differences between the full- and the demo version.
- The demo version runs for 30 days and can only be activated one time.
- In printout graphics are crossed out and in the text some characters are replaced with “X”.
- You can only print 10 labels at a time.
- It is not possible to open cablabel S3 Pro labels.
- The J-Script viewer is not available.
- Saving to memory card is not possible.
The labels you created in the Demo version can be open and edited in the Pro version.
It is possible to import a J-Script file ( *. LBL) in cablabel S3 Pro.This function offers you serveral possibilities.
You can load a label from a memory card or you can load a print file which was generated by a Windows driver or a labelling software.
The quality of the label depends on
1.) The LBL file.
When text fields with TrueType fonts are images fields, cablabel S3 can only import an image field that can’t be changed.
2.) The used functions.
cablabel S3 is able to import: text, bar codes and images, counter, easy variable and linked fields.
It is not able to import: data base, date and time fields, formula and serial number.
This example shows how to generate an automatic shift marking with formulas in the PRO version.
The characters F, S and N should be printed depending on the time.
Shift F from: 06.00 – 14.44
Shift S from: 14.45 – 22.59
Shift N from: 23.00 – 05.59
