I purchased a license for Panorama about 2 weeks ago and have been familiarizing myself with it. Mostly, I’ve been fumbling around figuring out the best way to approach a very specific problem.
I am working with a small company that makes ice cream and sells it in pre-packed containers in grocery stores. When they produce a single flavor of ice cream, we will need labels for that flavor. We have 8-up label stock. I might typically want to print a few sheets containing identical labels for that flavor.
A single label has to include 2 PNG files (a logo and another symbol) that are located at the top of the label along with some fixed text. The remainder of the label consists of 5 data fields of text (name, ingredients, etc.). Each data field will have its own font and size for the text
It seems that there are various possibilities for approaching this problem – Tiles, Matrix, custom report and probably others.
I thought Matrix was the way to go, but it appears not to allow for PNG Graphics based on what I see in the Help Tutorial. Maybe it does, but I don’t see how.
So, I need to print 8 identical labels on a single label sheet. The labels include PNG files and fields from the database.
What is the best approach to setting up the form for doing this? Matrix? Tile? Custom Form? Start with an Avery Label?
I am looking for some advice so that I know I am on a good path towards a solution.
