12LABELS.EXE Copyright(c) Sid Rogers 1988 page 2
Install 12Labels.exe in any hard drive sub-directory by using the DOS
Copy the Ventura chapter and *.cif file, style sheet and width table to
a floppy disk in drive A.
OPTION: Then use Ventura's multi-chapter function to copy the
entire 12Labels.PUB to any other location.
Remove the 12Labels.Chp floppy and start the 12Labels.exe program by
typing "12Labels" plus .
The program will prompt you to insert a floppy disk in Drive A. Then hit
"C" or to read the Drive A directory. Then program will read the
disk and create a file called DISK.nn, where nn is a number from 1 to 99.
After the file is formatted to VP specs you'll be prompted to insert
another floppy disk. Simply repeat until you've read all the disks you
wish to label.
Hit or "Q" at anytime to end the session.
A directory listing all "Disk.nn" files will be displayed upon exit.
Start VP, return the 12labels.PUB disk to Drive A and open the
12Labels.Chp. Choose file options to LOAD TEXT, ASCII, SEVERAL. Select
the directory where the disk.nn files are stored and select the first 12
disks. Then select OK.
Use the frame tool to select the Upper left hand box. Move the mouse to
the text box and place the pointer over disk.1. Click the mouse and the
first directory will load into the frame. Repeat until all 12 disk.nn
files are loaded into separate frames.
Select File/print option. Select manual feed and load printer with
a single 8.5"x11" Dennison label sheet. Hit enter or click "okay"
with mouse. In a few seconds your 12labels will emerge.
That's about all there is to it!
