With the label editor of the label software LP5 you can design, design and edit your labels individually - label design made easy. Thanks to the clear design of the user interface of the label software, which can also be adapted to personal needs, the operation of LabelsPlatform 5 is simple and intuitive. LP5 label editor offers far more functions than a conventional label designer.

All the necessary information is always available and nothing stands in the way of simple and efficient label creation.

After starting the editor of the label software LP5, the label editor presents itself with an open empty label. All toolbar arrangements from the last session are restored. The user can now edit and save the new label immediately, or load an existing label.

If label printers are already set up in LP5, LP5 establishes the connection to these printers immediately after starting, with the appropriate settings the printer status is now also continuously read and displayed in LP5.


The user now has the following controls to operate the program:

  • Title bar with quick access symbols

  • Menu / ribbon bar

  • Rulers

  • Layout editing area

  • Status bar with integrated zoom

  • Dockable lists of fields, variables, printers and properties


Well-known label printers are native, without Windows drivers and therefore extremely efficient  controlled.

Windows drivers are used for office printing systems. 

Each printer can have individual settings within a label layout. Multiple printer-related creation of labels is therefore not necessary.

Each object is kept in a field list. They can be divided into groups and levels, shown and hidden, moved in the order by drag and drop, fixed and defined, for example, as "not printable".

You only know these design tools from DTP and professional graphics applications - not from conventional label designers.

Label design label editor

The properties of a selected object such as label layout, text, barcode, line, graphic and other elements are clearly shown in a list. They can also be edited here directly in the label editor.

The variables bring the label to life.

Depending on the corresponding LP5 version  (ECO / STAR / PREMIUM) numerous automatisms are available here. These range from individual internal or external variables to intelligent formulas.

All variables can be yours depending on one another
Complete requirements.
