Hi guys!

Just read on QRZ.com that there's a new release of your nice log...went through the documentation but still couldn't find any hint about how to customize the QSL labels :cry: .

Is this now definitively out of scope? Or was I just too blind to find it in the docu?

Hi Kurt,
we are working on some parts of the code, and labels are on the list. There are a LOT of requests, as you can imagine, so i'm concentrating on some of them.
Label Printing is under a "private Alpha stage" where i'm defining a small Scripting Language to work on labels, but it's a big work keeping it simple...

Thanks Daniele for your reply,

well, to keep it simple, why not using the way I once proposed (to have a simple file, xml or even txt, containing the x and y coordinates of each field..). Usually a label layout will not be changed every day, so no reason to have a big graphical designer.

I understand that it's a lot of work, but I'm still convinced that it would be a big step forward for your already built-in label printing tool.

73s and thanks

Kurt,
You can design labels for label sheets like Avery the ony thing you can't do at this time is print to a roll printer

log4om prints the QSO and address labels, see utilities

Hello,

my obligatory question, after a lot of time has passed... does Log4OM now include a label/QSL card designer?

Still missing something like that desperately..

In the meanwhile we're integrated with a first class label manager (HRDLABEL by Claudio IW1QLH).
Log4OM is able to provide data flow to HRDLABEL and receive back the QSL Printed status from HRDLABEL software
