WWI Product Safety Label Questions

Dear all,

We are currently developing a WWI template for a Product Safety Label. We have a question left for the development:

The content (in terms of amount of phrases and languages) of a Label is variable per product, sometimes the content is longer than 1 page. As a product safety label needs to be fixed on 1 page, how can you ensure to fix the output of phrases to 1 page, with WWI coding or functionality within Edit Report Tempalte - WWI transaction?

Thanks a lot!

Kind regards.

    WWI template has automatic character resizing, blank compression. It should not be a problem.

    Example code:


    <100 = Symbol type 100 for defining font size,

    DYNTEXT = Dynamic Text

    11,28 = minimum and Maximum font size

    • Hello

      in addition of what Jayakumar explained:

      a.) in most cases it makes more sense to think about the "necessary data to print" before trying to fix the "page setup". That means if you do a proper set up of data in EH&S in combination with the generation variant only that data will be printed which is necessary (legally required)

      b.) the "dynamic font size" technique can be used as an "add on"

      To give you an example: The old "tremcard" in europe was a DIN A4 document with exactly one page. Most companies which I know use:

      a.) only that data which must be printed (from point of view of business they would like to print more in most cases) which is legally required

      b.) and second they use the dynamic font size technique

      Therefore there is no need to thik about the proposal of Jayakumar (which is to my knowledge really one of the last options you have)

      In any case: the reader can "read" a font size of in most case point 6 in word. Smaller sizes makes no sense especially not in the context of a "label".

      Furtheremore: the function module used must be "robust" in most cases regarding many languages to be printed and that might not be easy.

      With best regards
