You will need NiceLabel Designer installed on your PC to edit or create your own label template for iChemistry.

NiceLabel Automation Service must be running on your PC or server used for Label printing.

You must also have a NiceLabel compatible label printer and NiceLabel drivers installed on your computer before printing.

2. Extract NiceLabel.zip

Extract attached NiceLabel.zip file to your NiceLabel folder in Documents folder (Default location of NiceLabel labels, graphics and solutions; location can be different depending on your computer setup)

3. Customize the label template

Open iChemistryExampleNew.nlbl from Labels folder in NiceLabel Designer and verify settings such as Document properties, Printer settings and Label dimensions.

4. Customize Automation solution

Example Solution can be found from Solutions folder (extracted from NiceLabel.zip in step 2)

This example is listening to a specific file in a folder Documents\NiceLabel.

As soon as label.job is changed Automation will try to print the label using selected printer.

Open iCNiceLabel.misx in NiceLabel Automation Builder and edit File Trigger and its' actions

Select Label printer Action 1.1 Set Printer and select your Label printer.

Once Trigger is properly set you can preview output of the label. You must have saved all changes before running Preview.

If the preview is showing no errors, deploy the solution to Automation Manager and make sure Automation service is running.

It is recommended to build your own solution and triggers to match your computer environment.

If you make a small change in label.job file, a label should be printed using the defined printer.
