In Calibration mode you move the text and images on the label up/down or left/right to align the printing on a label.

Use the arrows to move the label’s text and image. An example preview appears in the window to the right of the arrows.

NOTE: Calibration is not available in Label Designer module. If label elements do not print where intended within this module, they may be shifted manually.
