2 Opening The Software To open the software double click on the Lighthouse for Max icon. The software will open. To design a new label, click on File New (To open an existing label, go to File Open and the location of the saved label.) A label will open with a default length of CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 2

3 Altering the page size If the page size needs to be altered once a label is open, double click outside of the label and a Label Setup dialog box will open. Click on the Dimensions tab, change the width (which is the length of the label) and click on OK. The page will alter accordingly. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 3

4 Inserting Text To insert text onto the label, click on the A Text icon from the left hand toolbar then click in the label. A flashing cursor will appear. Insert the text as normal and then click outside of the box so that the text is inserted and the box is still highlighted. Format the text as required, i.e. Bold, Italics, Font Style, Font Size, etc Note: The text pictured below is Arial, 80pt, Bold, Centered CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 4

5 Editing Text To edit text already on a label, double click on the text and a Text box will open. Change the wording as required and click on OK. If the text box is outside of the label area, indicated by a red border around the label, the text will turn to red. This is a visual warning to state that items may be outside of the printable area. Ensure the relevant information is within the red border. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 5

6 Inserting Graphics The software has a built-in clipart gallery with over 1,400 symbols. To insert a graphic from the clipart gallery, click on the Picture icon from the left hand toolbar then click in the label. Click on Clipart Gallery. There are two folders, CM-200 and CPM-100. Click on the + symbol next to the CPM-100. A list of categories will appear. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 6

7 Select the relevant category and Click on the required graphic symbol. Click OK and the graphic symbol will appear on the label. Resize as normal. Note: Graphics inserted into the label are linked to the Clipart Gallery. Double Click on the graphic to embed the object into the label. A few of the categories have two sets of symbols, one designed for single colored print and some for a two color print. For the example below, one set is for black ribbon onto yellow vinyl, and one set is for multi-colored print, yellow and black ribbon printing onto white vinyl. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 7

8 NOTE: Whatever length the label is set to, the printer will cut at this length, so for the example above, the page length need to be decreased to approx. 4, to do this, refer to page 3 of this manual. There will always be a small header at the beginning of each label when printing. This is a physical restriction of the printer. To save manually cutting the front header, or to make a sign or label an exact size, a shape can be inserted from the clipart gallery and set to cut rather than print. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 8

9 Cut Shapes The CPM has the ability to cut as well as print. The cutting is mainly used for shapes around labels which need to be a specific size or shape. All elements (text and graphics) which are inserted onto a label are defaulted to print only. These can be set to print, cut or, print and cut by selecting or unselecting the cut and print options from the toolbar on the left. To cut a label to a certain size, set up the label as required, and then go into the clipart gallery (see page 6) and then, go to the section called Shapes. There are two sets of shapes. Solid Shapes This will print a solid block of color and is used for printing multi-colored signs i.e. Warning signs Outline Shapes These are used for cutting rather than printing. Select the shape required and click OK CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 9

10 The shape can then be re-sized to fit around the label ensure that the shape is within the red border and the cut option is enabled from the toolbar. Note: You will see a knife icon in the lower right corner of the cut shape. If the shape needs to be a specific size, double click or right click on the selected object Properties and go to the Appearance Tab. Insert the required size and click OK Note: Graphics inserted into the label are linked to the Clipart Gallery. Select the Value Tab Click - Embed into label, to embed the object into the label. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 10

11 The shape will appear on the label. To align the shape to the label, right click over the shape and select Align. Select the relevant options, and make sure Align to label is checked and click OK. You can also click on the appropriate icon from the design toolbar on the right side. Print and Cut Icons Design Toolbar The shape needs to be set to cut rather than print. Select just the shape (if other objects are selected, these will also be set to cut) and at the bottom of the left hand toolbar there are two symbols, print and cut. De-select print and select the cut option. The shape will be set to cut indicated by a dagger symbol in the lower right hand corner of the shape. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 11

12 Duplicate Labels If a certain amount of the same label is required, a label can be set up to be duplicated down the page length. There is minimal waste compared with individual prints, these can be used for sequential numbering and linking to database fields, and when printing multi-colored labels, i.e. labels which are red and black, all of the red will be printed for all labels, then all the black for all the labels, etc. To set up duplicate labels, open a new label, double click on the label which will open the Label Setup box. Go to the Paper Layout tab and click on Select Page Size. Alter the Width to the length required. This can be set up to the full 78 inches if required. This sets the overall page length and tells the software that the page is going to be split up into smaller labels. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 12

13 Go to the Dimensions tab. Insert the Width and Height of just one individual label, i.e x.94. Ensure that the Left and Top margin is set to.196 to keep the labels within the printable area. Under the Labels Across section increase Rows and Columns. The counter will stop when the page cannot fit any more labels. X gap and Y gap should be set to at least.039. This is the gap between the labels and if there is no gap it will be difficult to separate the labels and peel them off. Click OK CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 13

14 Design the label as normal and remember to insert a cut shape around the first label only, and not the full page (pages 9 11). Whatever is set up in the first label will be automatically copied on the other labels. To preview the labels, click on Zoom to Page and the whole page will show. Click on Print and select Pages 1. Click on Preview and all the labels will appear. Click Finish and make any alterations if required. NOTE: All of the labels will only show when in Print Preview mode. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 14

15 Muti-Colored Printing The CPM-100 Label Printing System can print multi-colored labels as well as single color. To assign colors to objects, enter the information onto the label and select (click on) the object. When you create a multi-colored label, the system will ask you for each color when printing out your label. NOTE: Always put a cut shape around your multi-colored label. If this is not done, the printer will not cut the label off the vinyl roll. A manual cut on the side of the printer will have to be used. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 15

16 Inserting Custom Graphics It is possible to insert most graphics and logos into the software. With a label open, Select the Picture icon from the toolbox on the left. Click on the label. Browse to the location of the saved graphic, select it and click on Open. The software looks for most graphic file types, i.e..bmps,.gif,.jpg, jpeg,.tif,.tiff,.png,.wmf,.emf,.pcx, etc..wmf is the recommended format. To see a full list, pull down the Files of type: menu from the Open graphics file window (above). Multi-Colored Graphics If the custom graphic is a two color and is a format other than.wmf, the software will only register it as a one color graphic and will print a single color. If the logo is a.wmf file and is multi-colored, the software will register the different colors and will therefore ask for the relevant colored ribbons. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 16

17 Inverse Printing Inverse printing is mainly used when printing with a colored ribbon onto white vinyl or to emphasize a piece of information. To use the inverse option, select the Inverse icon from the toolbar on the left. Click in the label or drag a box onto the label. Adjust the size accordingly. The inverse box will appear in black so the inverse box and the text box need to be assigned the same color, so for the example above, the inverse box and the text are both blue. NOTE: It is important to set both the inverse box and the text to the same color. If the text is set to white, and the inverse box is set to a different color, the software detects two colors, blue and white for example, and will ask for both ribbon colors. CPM 100 v.5 User Guide 17
