Learn how to create labels using Microsoft® Word. Variations may occur among different versions of Word, but basic principles are the same. The DuraLabel PRO/PRO 300 is designed to work with any currently supported Windows software and should work with the software installed on your computer. Microsoft Word 2003 and 2010 were used to describe many procedures below.
The following information assumes your printer has been properly installed and is connected in the online mode.

DuraLabel PRO/PRO 300 printers operate off a standard Windows driver that allows access to a wide variety of software packages.
NOTE: Navigation may vary depending on your version of Word, but the tools will be the same.
IMPORTANT! If you do not follow this step, you will need to create all labels from scratch.
The DuraLabel PRO/PRO 300 provides a variety of templates you can install from the installation CD start-up screen. Click on Install Templates & Symbols and follow the instructions. When installation is complete, templates and symbols will be accessible from a folder titled My Documents\DLP Templates & Symbols.
To use a template, open Microsoft Word, select Open and browse the DLP Templates & Symbols folder. Any template you choose has been set up to print correctly on the DuraLabel PRO/PRO 300 printer, with minimal augmentation.
When opening a document, change size and margins to match your label’s size. (Word processors default to 8.5" x 11".) Click on the File menu, then Page Setup. Click the Margins tab on the Page Setup dialog box that appears. Set all Margins to 0 to print on the entire supply.
Set Orientation to Portrait if label width is the same dimension as the supply width loaded in your printer. Set orientation to Landscape if label height is the same as the supply width loaded in your printer. Click OK when done.
Now select the Paper tab and set the Paper size to the size label you want to create. Either the Width or Height should match the width of supply loaded in your printer.
