The Dymo tape editor screen will not let me enter text

The Dymo software tape editor screen will not let me enter text. It just remains blank whichever keys I press. I've tried cutting and pasting but that doesn't work either. The machine is new and I have not used it before so I might be making a mistake somewhere. I am using a Mac running OS X 10.5.8. Thank you.

In the new DYMO Label Software version 8.x you need to add the text object to the tape before you can start typing. CLick on the Designer tab on the left and drag one of the object fields like Address or Text onto the tape. You will then see on the label a box that says something like " Click here to enter text". Once you have that you can click on the box and start typing. I hope this helps.

How do I change the size of the print on the label


Using the software that came with it modify the font settings.
Changing the Default Font Settings in DYMO Label Software Answer 299 ' Applies To DYMO ' Published 07/20/2005 10:16 AM EDT ' Updated 08/31/2010 05:05 PM EDTHow do I change the default font settings in the DYMO Label Software (DLS)?

Font settings can be adjusted for individual label templates and for the DLS application. Please note, changing the font settings for the DLS application will only affect the creation of new label templates. It does not change the font settings of any previously created and saved label templates.

Changing the Default Font Settings for Individual Label Templates in DLS

  1. Open DLS.
  2. In DLS, click and highlight the text on the label template.
  3. The tool bar above the label template allows you to change various font and justification settings. To change font type and font size you must click on the Font Settings icon: f_f.jpg
  4. Make the necessary changes to the font settings. The Sample field indicates how the text will appear on the label. Please note, the text will automatically shrink to fit if you select a font size that is too large for the address or text object on the label to accommodate.
  5. Click OK after making the necessary changes.
  6. Save the label template. Click on the File menu in DLS and select either Save or Save As. Selecting Save will save the label template with its existing name. Selecting Save As will allow you to enter a new name and create a new label template.

1 Answer

When typing the print is faded


Dymo LetraTAGs are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the print starts to fade it's time to put new batteries in. When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape.

I don't know if mine is thermal or not. But, I need ink and don't know where to replace it


Dymo Letratags are thermal printers, so they don't use ink - just batteries and LetraTAG tapes.
When the batteries are running out the text fades first even when the motor is still feeding tape, so change the batteries!

Dymo prints blotchy labels and feeds out many labels after print


Sounds like you have a couple of issues going on...your labels are incompatible or you have an incorrect template selected in the Dymo Software.

Check that the label model matches the template and you are using quality Dymo Labels. Such as the Dymo name brand or the LabelValue brand Dymo labels.

Hi I'm wondering if the Dymo pocket will take a tape, so that I can iron labels on to clothing or even be stitched on. If so what would the cassette be called. Thanks


The Dymo label printer capable of printing iron on tape is the Dymo Letratag. There are a couple of model printers

Dymo Letratag - handheld model
Dymo Letratag - desktop model with qwerty keyboard

and the Dymo 18771 Letratag iron on tape is the tape cartridge available.

Does not cut through the tape


Here is what Dymo has to say about this issue:
https://global.dymo.com/enUS/RNW/RNW.html?pg=std_adp.php&p_faqid=68

Here is the text in case the link drops:
Question Why can't I cut the tape after printing a label?
trnsp.gif Answer Every time a label is cut, residue from the label's adhesive remains on the cutter blade. This is a normal occurrence when the LabelMaker is used frequently. It is important to regularly clean the cutter blade in the cassette compartment with either the special brush delivered together with the LabelMaker (located in tape compartment door) or a cotton tip swab and a soft solvent (e.g. alcohol).
If the solution above does not resolve the problem, check for tape path obstructions. If the problem persists, please contact DYMO Technical Support to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number. To obtain an RMA number, scroll to the top of this page and click on the Ask a Question tab. Make sure to include your full name, address, shipping, and contact information.
