However, if you are running LABEL MATRIX, LABELVIEW or CODESOFT, you are still able to get some of this information. The type of information available varies for each software.

This article will show you how to enable the log information for each software. 

Note: The accompanying pictures below were captured from LABEL MATRIX 2018, LABELVEIW 2018 and CODESOFT 2019. If your software has a different version than above, the information should still apply.
