When a cartridge is loaded, and the Lobo is turned on, the display screen shows what we call the label canvas.
Like visuals? You can view examples here: DuraLabel Lobo User Guide
The label canvas can only display one cell at a time. If a label has multiple cells, the next cell can be accessed by using the Next Cell key. (Shift + Next Cell moves to a previous cell.)
A label’s width (corresponding to the screen’s vertical dimension in most layouts) is automatically based on the width of the print cartridge. Pressing Enter will move the cursor to the next line and create a new text field. This will also automatically reduce the size of the existing content in order to fit the label width. (This automatic field resizing won’t occur if Font Size is set to Fixed.)
The label’s length will change based on how much content has been entered on the label. (Automatic length resizing won’t occur if Label Length is set to Fixed.)
Around the label canvas, mode there are several status indicators that give you important information about the label project.
The content status box at the top of the screen displays some key pieces of information.
The large letter in the top left of the screen indicates the type of content where the cursor is currently located. The abbreviations are:
T = text
IMG = image (symbol)
B = barcode
S = sequence
SB = sequenced barcode
D = time/date
The content status box displays other relevant information about the content. For instance, for a text field, the content status box communicates if the text is currently set to underlined, bolded, or italicized, amongst other information.
NOTE: The .GPF is a Lobo-specific file suffix that indicates the file was created on the Lobo. The .GPF suffix is not visible in the file menus.
This means that the Lobo is plugged into the power adaptor and currently using AC power.
This means that the Lobo is using battery power. The green area of the battery icon indicates the remaining battery charge.
When the battery icon turns red, it means that the battery is low on energy and should be recharged.
When the battery is charging, the letter B is red and the battery icon is filled.
