Multiple label styles in one print results in multiple cuts

Hi

There is a requirement to produce a label sheet on a Zebra 6M PLUS. This label sheet is comprised of 6 x 3 rows of one label (using PQ command) design followed by 1 x 3 row of a different label design.

The problem I am encountering is that after the 7 rows have printed, I need a label cut. However, what actually happens is the label prints the 6 rows, cuts, then prints the 7th row followed by another cut.

Is there capability to control the cut so that all 7 rows are contiguous on one sheet followed by the cut instead of two cuts caused by different label designs?

Happy to provide sample code as required.

Are the 7 rows in one ZPL or

Are the 7 rows in one ZPL or in two ZPL? I would assume they are in two separate ZPL, one for the first 6 rows and one for the 7th row.

By default, the pause and cut (p parameter) of ^PQ command is set to 0, which means there will be no cut. Please make sure the parameter of ^PQ is correct in the first ZPL to disable the cut. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply - see

Thanks for your reply - see my sample code below, I've highlighted the PQ on the single line of labels - if I wish to disable the cut for that, is there a switch that will do that?

When you send the ZPL for the first group of labels that you don't want the cut, you can use ^MMD (Delayed Cutter)  to disable the cut.

When you send the ZPL for the second group of labels that you do want the cut, then re-enable the cut with ^MMC command. Hope this helps.
