Should You Upgrade?
The latest version 2 of the Producer software has been completely redesigned to make it easier to design and print metal tags. However, some changes to the software, like the conversion from the ANSI character set to Unicode, can cause compatibility issues on existing installations. For most users, upgrading should be easy and straight-forward, and should problems arise it is simple to download and revert to the old V1x software.
If you are new to the InfoSight line of LabeLase® printers then we highly suggest you start with the new version 2 of Producer. You will find it much easier to use and its new features may better address your marking needs.
If you already have existing LabeLase® printers in your facility, you may want to stick with version 1x of the Producer software, since it will maintain compatibility with your existing processes. View the page here: LabeLase® Producer™ Software Version 1x
If you find that some of the new features in version 2 will help you solve a problem that you just couldn't quite solve with version 1, then go ahead and upgrade.
Note that the new version 2 software supports importing Excel spreadsheet files, but it no longer uses the XLTags feature to print them. Newer Excel files (xlsx) are now supported, and these data files are directly imported as jobs in the job queue. Because we no longer use XLTags, and because Producer can now perform word-wrap on individual fields, we no longer support splitting of the first spreadsheet column into multiple fields. It should be a simple matter of editing your layout to remove the extra fields and turn on word-wrap.
