Disk label printing

I have just discovered Disketch and like that's it free. I can't find an easy way to position the label contents to print on my disk labels. This may be a very silly question, but I'd really appreciate an answer. Thanks.

 

 

I am with you on that. I like the program. I bought 100 sheets of stick on labels, two per sheet but do not see how to set up the printer to print where the labels are on the 8.5x11 paper. Hello is there anybody in there??

Hello, if you have been able to solve this problem, please pass on the details for me. Many thanks. Murray.

There is a new version of Disketch just about to be released which should make it much easier to print the labels. This version is just going through final test now and should be out soon.

R we talking about version 1.11? I installed today, 9/8/2009, I can't do it nor- can I adjust font sizes either!

When you have your label ready to print follow the following steps.

1. expand Label Layout Properties on the right side of the page.

2. click Edit Label Layout

3. under Template Properties change Center x and Center y to adjust where the label will print.

4. I use Memorex paper with 2 dvd/cd labels per page. I set Center x to -1.4 and Center y to -2.5. 

5. hope this helps.

I have a Canon Pixma 8500 complete with disk printing tray. However, using the newly bought Disketch Plus software I cannot get the printed label to line up correctly even when I adjust the layout dimensions/parameters. I have adjusted edge distances but without managing to get near to a correct alignment, likewise the centre offsets. It's as though the software is clashing with the disk print tray setup, almost as though the edge offset is for a whole print page rather than the disk tray. Even just printing onto a label sheet I can't get the printed output to align correctly.

I also note that the help notes with the software get the X and Y mixed up, stating X is offset from top of page and Y is from left which is incorrect. But even correcting for that adjusting the centre offset did not work.

Please help (I'm trying to prepare a disk for a Christmas gift so time is pressing!!)

Thanks
