Adjust or Add a Layout to Match the Paper Stock You are Using.
The Layout screen allows you to adjust the layout of your label or business card. The layout defines the number of rows and columns, the space between rows and columns, page margins and other options. Adjustments made on this screen allow you to correct alignment issues on the printer and use custom/proprietary label and business card paper stock that is not listed in the software.
Link Labels (or Business Cards) to a Database.
The Linked Database Wizard guides you through the process of selecting and configuring a database to link to your label or business card. It lets you choose from just about any database your system supports, such as text files, CSV files, Excel files, Access databases and the built-in Personal Databases.
Once a database is linked you can pull data from selected fields to be displayed in your design. For example, you may have a field in the database called name which you can use to display the name on each of a set of labels. You can even use this same technique to print business cards with different names, titles, etc. or all your employees.

The Print screen is displayed when you choose to print your design. It allows you to specify the number of elements to print, the starting position on the first sheet and the sides to print (front and/or back).

Store Frequently Used Contact Information to Instant Insertion into a Label or Business Card.
The Personal Databases are a set of databases that allow you to store contact information and text snipets for easy re-use. For example, you can keep the names, titles, phone numbers, etc. of employees in the Names and Addresses database then easily select an employee to fill in the business card information when creating a card for that employee. Multiple categories allow you to organize you data the way you want and user-definable fields let you store extra information that does not correspond to any of the pre-defined fields.
