printing labels on multiple column one at a time

I am trying to print a label for a production unit after testing.  Since the labels are quite small,

we would like to print them one by one in multiple columns

 

 

Is there a way to program zpl to

print a label,

feed and peel,

Then backfeed when the next zpl command comes,

print on the next column,

feed and peel,

Then backfeed agin when the next zpl command comes,

print on the next column,

etc..

 

I tried looking at the manual, but couldn't find a way to achieve this.

The backfeed feature on the

The backfeed feature on the printers only allows a small amount backfeed for easy peel off in non rewind mode. Unfortunately we cannot backfeed the entire label. To print the labels on multiple columns, we can put the individual labels in one ZPL, as if they are one label in one ZPL (One ZPL means there is one pair of ^XA and ^XZ to enclose the ZPL). Hope this helps.

Would you say the rewind

Would you say the rewind option is used for this purpose? I can see us finishing a column at a time from the far side and achieving more or less the same effect.

No, what I said is that the backfeed is disabled if the ezpl.print_mode is set to rewind mode. Here is the reference at "~JS – Change Backfeed Sequence".

I know, I am using peel mode and tested all ~js code

Just saying for me to efficiently use up all columns I may need to go get a rewinding accessory and use the rewind mode. Then start the label column one at a time.
