Using MILT 4 - Advanced - Step 4: Preview

Step 4: Preview – Advanced


The Preview tab is your final check before printing your labels. Before Update 4014, MILT automatically forced a preview before you could print a label. To improve performance, Update 4014 changed this behavior co now MILT allows you to do a preview before you print so you can be sure everything is correct, but you can now print without a preview. From this screen you can select a printer and a tray, adjust the margins, and select a quantity of doses and log labels to print. MILT remembers these settings for this type of label for you automatically.

Preview Settings – Printer, Margins and Quantity


Any printer installed in Windows will be available in MILT. MILT will automatically remember the Printer and Tray you select for this type of label when you preview or print the label.


If needed, you can adjust the margins here. Increasing the value of the Top will move all the labels down, increasing the Left will move them toward the right, and increasing the Bottom will move the Log Labels up. MILT 4 will also remember these settings. Permission to change these settings can be controlled in SettingsRoles.


Enter the number of Doses, Log 1 and/or Log 2 labels here.

Click Preview to see your label before printing, and then click Print if you are satisfied with the label.  If you need to make changes before you print, you may go back to steps 1, 2 and/or 3 at any time.
