[en] Installation and activation improvements

[en] Enhanced licensing error messages

[en] The NiceLabel error messages for licensing issues are now using user-friendly wording. The new messages provide a plain English description of what went wrong.

[en] The error messages instruct on the possible steps to self-service the problem or include a link to escalate the problem to the members of the Technical Support team.

[en] New and improved functionalities

[en] Format Painter to copy text format to other objects

[en] Use the Format Painter on the Home tab to quickly apply the same formatting, such as color, font style and size to multiple text objects. The format painter lets you copy the formatting from one object and apply it to another one – think of it as copying and pasting for formatting. You can also copy the formatting for objects between the label templates and in the forms.

[en] You would select the object that has the formatting that you want to copy. On the Home tab, click Format Painter. The pointer changes to the paintbrush icon. Select the other text object to apply the formatting. To apply the format to multiple object, select them in a selection frame.


[en] Alternatively, to change the format of multiple objects in the label template, select the original object, press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + C, select the target objects in the label or in the form, and press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + V.

[en] Layer visualization improvement

[en] In NiceLabel 2019.1, a new view on the layer objects is available to label and form designers.

[en] When you hover a mouse on top of a certain layer, the objects positioned on that layer remain visible in the design area, while all objects from the other layers become transparent. The new view helps you identify the content that belongs to a specific layer without implicitly changing the layer’s visibility. The new visualization option works for visible or hidden layers.


[en] Validation of characters in printer fonts

[en] Label printers have certain fonts already built-in. NiceLabel refers to these fonts as “printer fonts”. If the text objects in label templates use printer fonts, the data sent to the printer includes the actual characters from the text object. On the contrary, the text objects that use the TrueType fonts are converted to images and printed as graphics (GDI).

[en] Printer fonts usually contain a subset of all available characters. For example, the Unicode characters are typically not supported. Some printer fonts imply even harsher limitations, such as “upper case letters only”.

[en] If you use printer fonts for your text objects and provide the characters that are not supported with the selected font, NiceLabel reports an error. Text objects with invalid content are clearly displayed in error state.

[en] Correct styles for printer fonts displayed in ribbon

[en] Printer fonts for label printers work differently than the TrueType fonts that are vector fonts. You can easily scale the vector fonts and apply many styles to them (e.g., bold, italic, underline). Many printer fonts are available just in specific sizes and styles.


[en] For example, a printer font is available in a limited selection of point sizes, and in bold. NiceLabel Designer visually identifies which styles are supported for the selected printer font.

[en] Preserving localized font names on systems with different locale

[en] Certain fonts – especially Asian fonts – have dual names (localized name and English name) that depend on the system locale settings. This can cause issues when the label designed on a system with localized system is used on a system with English locale system.

[en] In NiceLabel 2019.1, the font names are preserved and the label template always uses the correct font without regards to the locale settings on the target computer.

[en] Updated support for GS1-128 specification (issue 19.0, January 2019)

[en] GS1 support in the software has been updated according to the annual update of GS1 Specification (Release 19 from January 2019). There are new Application Identifiers (723s, 8009, and 8026). Certain identifiers have new descriptions (30,37, 8112). These Application Identifiers were also updated to meet the latest specification updates (410-415, 8110, 90).

[en] Barcode library is updated to the latest version

[en] NiceLabel uses a barcode library to render the images of some barcode types. The new version is more reliable and provides multiple bug fixes for barcode support.
