    Would be helpful if this was in the "Getting Started" manual instead of needing to go online for any question about
    -- capabilities
    -- lists of supported barcode symbologies
    -- how to use the barcode wizard
    -- how to set up user prompts for Lot number etc.

    I'm so glad we aren't using Bartender for our regular labeling software, but I still have to figure it out so our vendors can produce the labeling we need for our products.
