2.      Set the options described below.


Note: The choices you make will be remembered for your next PlanogramBuilder session.

Schematic View / Generic Products / Dimensions

Font face


This sets the typeface for the text labels. It also applies to text in dimensions, on generic products and products in the database that use the box shape without picture.

Font height


This sets the text size for text labels. It may be necessary to use a smaller text size if your product labels cannot be displayed fully with the default text size.

You can also fine-tune the font size interactively by selecting Tool > Font Size from the right-click context menu. With this tool, move your mouse left/right or up/down to change the font size. While the tool is active, you can click on the viewing area to reset the default value.


Under Schematic View:


Bay style

Show label displays the name of each bay on a label strip as shown below. Please see Bay Name to find out how to assign names to the bays.


Product style

box & label displays products as simple boxes with their caption printed on the front face:



shape & label displays products with their picture and a caption printed as a label strip:



Group labels combines labels for groups of adjacent same products.

When using Group labels with the box & label style, labels are grouped only vertically (ex: product no5) to help identify the products visually and prevent confusion since there is no visible product picture (ex: product no14):



When using Group labels with the shape & label style, a single label is displayed for adjacent same products:



Product label

You can choose and combine information to display on the product labels:

Number shows a label with the product position on the bay indexed from left to right, top to bottom. In reports, these numbers can then be printed in Report Views and used in conjunction with numbers displayed in the product listing to easily match items between the list and the image. Note: the numbering in schematic views exactly matches the numbering in report columns; it is therefore influenced by choices made in Report Options.



Reference displays products with their unique reference printed on the front face.

Name displays products with their name printed on the front face.

Custom properties: custom properties defined for your database. Each of them shows products with the value of the selected custom property. See Item Custom Properties for help on these user definable properties.
