New Features & Enhancements in CodeSoft 2018
Port Watch (v10.00.00) This new free variable type Port Watch allows the reception of data from external devices connected by USB, COM, or Ethernet.
Layers and dual side printing (v10.00.00) New layers allow printing header and footer labels and dual side printing. This can be used to print form documents like invoices and orders, where different information needs to be printed on the back side of the page.
Text Art improvements (v10.00.00) New Text Art capabilities allow drawing text based on the shape being used (text can be drawn inside or outside of the shape). In such cases, the text is not drawn where it will
overlap other objects. This can be used for GHS labels where all of the space on the label must be optimized based on the number of objects that need to be printed.
RTF Field – Fit to Frame option (v10.00.00) This option eases the creation of GHS labels. Hazard Statements and Precautionary Statements can mix different formatting options (bold, underline, etc.) and still need to fit to a frame to optimize space on the label and avoid overlapping.
EPS and PDF support (v10.00.00) Support for .eps files (Encapsulated PostScript) is in vector format (no longer supported through reading the BITMAP preview as it was previously). Note: This feature relies on a GhostScript freeware component that needs to be installed. For compatibility, if the GhostScript is not installed, the BITMAP header, if existent, will be imported as it was in previous versions.
Click Print (v10.00.00) New easy-to-use printing interface for Print-only users.
New Barcodes (v10.00.00) Micro QRCode, ISBT128 Wizard, Kix Code, Japanese post, Australian post, Telepen, and Code 1.
Pocket Printing (v10.00.00) This add-on allows printing with Windows Mobile devices.
Control Variables (v10.00.00) @APPROVED control variable is used to indicate whether or not the document is approved. @VALIDFORPRINT control variable is used to indicate if the document is valid for printing. Both control variables can be used to prevent unapproved printing.
@VALIDFORPRINT control variable to indicate if the document is valid for printing. The @APPROVED and @VALIDFORPRINT control variable can be used to prevent printing document not approved.
Compatibility with other TEKLYNX Software
CODESOFT v10.00.00 is compatible and fully tested to work with the following TEKLYNX software packages:
