Label
A label is the design area on a sheet of paper. A sheet of paper can contain more than one label. For example, the CD/DVD 2-UP paper has 2 CD/DVD labels and 2 utility labels. When designing with Pro Media Organizer 1.0, you design on the label first, then pick your paper when you want to print.
Paper
Paper is really a sheet of our Fellowes/Neato or Neato branded paper. Pro Media Organizer 1.0 supports many different paper layouts for your labeling needs.
Label Template
A label template in Pro Media Organizer 1.0 is where you start when you want to design your label. A template is essentially a copy of a blank label to which you can add text and pictures. For example, if you were designing a CD label, you would choose the CD Label Template. Pro Media Organizer 1.0 would then show a blank copy of the CD label on the screen.
Binder
Pro Media Organizer uses the concept of a binder, similar to a binder for your desk. Inside a binder you place various folders which will be displayed with tabs.
Batch
A batch is a collection of labels to be printed in the same print run
Common Task Area
The common task area is an interface element that contains panels that can be rolled-up (collapsed) or rolled-down (expanded) to show their contents. The contents of the common task area can be links, buttons, check boxes, drop down lists and other elements. Some common items found in the common task area are Explore for Files, Synchronize, and Properties.
