Can I register a program to the printer?

Yes.  You can register symbols, databases, and other frequently used items.
This feature allows you to recall registered programs by pressing the Program key.

 

Registering a new program

  1. Select [Register Programmable Function] in the Home screen using the Upward arrow , Downward arrow , Left arrow or Right arrow key, and then press the OK or Enter key.
     
  2. Select [***] (not registered) using the Upward arrow or Downward arrow key, and then press the OK or Enter key.
     
  3. Select the item category (symbol, transferred symbol, database, transferred template, or file) that you want to register using the Upward arrow or Downward arrow key, and then press the OK or Enter key.
     
  4. Select the item that you want to register, and then press the OK or Enter key.
     
  5. Enter the program name, and then press the OK or Enter key.
    The program registration is completed.
    • The registered program name can also be changed later.
    • You can register up to 10 programs.  If 10 programs are already registered, you must delete one of the programs before registering a new program.
    • If you recall a registered program and make changes to it, the revised program cannot be registered by overwriting the previous program.  The revised program must be registered as a new program.  Delete any unnecessary programs.
