    Zebra Printer GX420t and GX430t arabic issue

    Louie D.

      Hi Mr./Mrs.,

       

      Good day ,  Can you help me resolve my problem regarding printing of Arabic character using the printer GX420t and GX430t.

      It’s not working when I tried to print Arabic even I already install the font Swiss 721 BT.

      Can you suggest what I need to do to make the font of Arabic work.

      your help would be greatly appreciated.

       

       

      font Swiss 721 BT (77849_002.ZSU)  already installed.

      The firmware version of my printer is : V56.17.17Z. is it possible that the version of the printer is not supported Arabic even it’s already installed?

          Hi Louie,

          The version of the GX420d firmware is the latest and does support Arabic.  I don't see anything specifically wrong with your ZPL.  Can you send an image of what it is printing?

           

          Also, Make sure you compose your ZPL file in a good text file editor such as Notepad++, then open it in the Setup Utility window.  Do not edit or copy and paste into the Setup Utility window as it may change the encoding of the non-ASCII text, even if it shows it correctly.
