I am updating a legacy system that prints product labels using old macintoshes running OS9, FileMaker, MacThermal, and Zebra printers.

 

In the legacy system has six different printers each with different labels and multiple layouts for each label.  When a label is needed, the part number is entered and a button for the label type is pressed.  This starts a script that determines what layout is used and exports the data to MacThermal and selects which of the 150 MacThermal layouts to use.

 

The replacement system runs on OS10 and will use a FileMaker and thermal printer driver to replace MacThermal.

 

My question is, is there a better way to setup all the variations of the label layouts without having a separate FileMaker layout for each one?
