Create a Sheet Layout Design


The Sheet Layout Designer allows the user to design how they want the labels to be output on a sheet or bitmap.


To create a Sheet Layout, open the Sheet Layout Designer under the 'Tools' 'RCIM Labeling' menu.


When the flyout menu appears, select 'Sheet Layout Designer'


Note: If creating labels for a sheet template, the size of the label must match exactly to the label size determined by the Sheet Layout.


The designer has two main controls: The Layout Template selection and the template preview.


The template selection window allows the user to see existing templates and to edit them.

 New Button- launches the create template window

 Edit Button – allows you to edit an existing config

 Delete button – allows you to delete an existing


The template preview shows what the template looks like when the user selects it.

This window is accessed when you create a new template or edit an existing. This area allows you to create or edit a layout template to match your sheet labels needed.

Note: Each field needs to be completed in order to make sure that when the labels are printed, that they match to the sheet labels that you intend to use.


Once you have completed setting up the sheet layout, select the 'Save' button and name your sheet layout.


Note: When saving the Sheet Layout, it must be saved in this location: C:\Router-CIM\LabelTemplates\Layouts
