Creating Spine Label Layouts in Koha 4

The label creator in Koha 3.2 has been completely rewritten and improved. This tutorial will walk you through creating a spine label layout in Koha.

As always, if you have an idea for a video, please just let me know and I’ll add it to my list of things to record.

    Hello. My name is Mina and I catalog for Howard College/Anthony Hunt Library. I have created my layouts BC/& spine. I have on little problem w/spine label layouts…I set as itemcallnumber, please notice the two spine labels below: Second line should read D159e, all in one line…it’s splitting the “e” to third line. How can I make adjustment/corrections to my layouts? It is Not a margin problem. Just don’t understand why it’s splitting the “e” NO space after it, either and #2 space after 2010.

    Thank you for your help. Mina

    Based on your URL I don’t think you’re on Koha, you’re on a fork of Koha. The label maker was completely re-written for Koha 3.2. What version are you running?

    I have sent your comment to the developer who wrote the label maker in hopes that he can help you some more, but like I said if you’re on a version other than Koha 3.2 we might not have an answer for you.

    759.6 D159e splits correctly based on the current LCCN splitting algorithm in the current HEAD at

    I’m sorry I cannot comment/test/fix any code other than this.
