Then, type the barcode digits or copy and paste them into the barcode editor, and SAVE. Enter up to eight pages, of the same barcode type, but SAVE the page, before starting the next.

Themes: To create a Band Theme, choose any picture in the photo "Library" or use the "Camera" to capture a new image. Once selected, set the zoom and crop position, then set the primary and secondary colors, and SYNC. Once transferred, the color values can be changed and SYNC'ed while maintaining the chosen picture adjustments. Save up to 8 different themes, new themes will overwrite old when edited.
