     19=== TIPS ===
     20
     21If the printer skips a label first adjust the label length.  If it is off by one, it can cause the printer to form feed multiple labels.  Some users have reported that, when printing pocket labels, the label length must be one more than the actual length.

    145 === Initial Setup Create Custom Forms in Windows XP ===
    146 
    147 ==== Label Stock ====
    148 
    149 You will need to create a custom form or page type for your label stock.  No standard stock templates have been defined for printing these labels in Evergreen.  The carrier height and width varies for the stock depending on vendor and style.   For example, the Arthur A. Wishart Library at Algoma University currently uses '''Dymo 400''' series label printers for the Dymo compatible LV-30347 spine label that measures 1” wide by 1.5” long.

    152 
    153 To create the custom form in Windows, you will need to measure the section of the continuous label stock and not the label itself.  Once you have determined the dimensions, you can create the custom form.
    154 
    155 In Windows, click on ''Start > Printers and Faxes > File > Server Properties''' (or right click anywhere on blank space in the '''Printers and Faxes''' window and click on ''Server Properties'').
    156 
    157 Click the checkbox next to the '''Create New Form''' heading.
    158 
    159 [insert image]

    161 Under the '''Form Description (Measurements)''', ensure that appropriate units of measurement are selected.  (For the Dymo 400 example, we have selected '''English Units'''.)
    162 
    163 In the '''Form name''' field, etner a name of your choosing.
    164 
    165 [insert image]
