NiceLabel Automation Compatibility with GalleryWatch

Official translation unavailable. Translate this page with Google:

Problem

NiceLabel Automation is built upon the new-generation core and doesn't support the entire set of features from the previous generation software, such as GalleryWatch. You can import most of the existing GalleryWatch configurations to NiceLabel Automation. But some of the old features are not supported.

There are some label design features that you can use inside label designer, but you can't use them in NiceLabel Automation. When you try to print a label with incompatible features, NiceLabel Automation displays a warning. You have to remove the unsupported functionalities from your label templates.

Below is the list of unsupported functionality compared to GalleryWatch.

Not supported GalleryWatch features

  • E-mail trigger

  • Close label action

Not supported label design features

  • Bar codes: Royal Mail, Australia Post 4-state, USPS Intelligent mail, Code128 Pharmacy, Kix, Pharmacode, all Postnet barcodes.

  • 2D Codes: 2D Pharmacode, Codablock F, GridMatrix, DotCode.

  • Functions: User defined check-digit algorithms, Currency exchange, Lookup table, PIATS Code.

  • Objects: Curved text, OLE object.

  • Object formatting: »Stacked text« for Text object, Boundaries (cut out areas/trapeze text) for Text Box object, "Characters spacing" for Text object, the option "Use the same size for all text boxes with enabled 'Best fit' option" for Text Box object.

  • Label formatting: Multiband printing, Smart replacement of printer fonts (use Automatic font replacement option instead), Stocks (the option »Label is linked to stock«), Rounded label corners in label preview inside Automation Builder, Object „label“ not exposed in VBScript.

  • Variables: remember last used value

  • GalleryCommands: EXPORTLABEL

Other unsupported Features

  • Downloading fonts to printer memory.

Solution

Some of the GalleryWatch functionalities are supported differently in NiceLabel Automation. When importing the existing NiceWatch configurations, NiceLabel Automation re-configures the features into the new syntaxes.

Reconfiguration of GalleryWatch features

  • Filter definition and filter action are separate items inside the configuration. Now you can use one filter definition in many triggers. GalleryWatch was limited to one filter per trigger.

  • File trigger option"Save incoming data to file" is reconfigured with the new action "Save data to file".

Requesting support for a particular feature

If you are migrating from GalleryWatch to NiceLabel Automation and need a currently not supported feature, please contact us. You can influence the feature list that will be available in the next release of NiceLabel Automation software.

Make sure to verify, if the requested functionality has been added in NiceLabel Automation in the latest release.
