This month's most popular video tutorial for BarTender users shows how to overcome the problems of small variable text values not being centred in the middle of the design and large variable text values overflowing outside the design.
  1. Double click on the textbox border to open its properties
  2. Click "Position"
  3. Change the "Object Reference Point" to "Centre"
  4. Under "Data Sources" open the "Transforms" tab
  5. Click the "Number of Characters" button
  6. Tick the "Require minimum number of characters" checkbox
  7. Tick the "Limit maximum number of characters" checkbox
  8. Enter the maximum number of characters and click "OK"
  9. Click "Close" to close the properties
  10. Centre the textbox in the middle of the label template
  11. You will now be warned if the variable data entered exceeds the maximum character limit.
