    Label Home

      I am using a ZD620 with Zebra 10010054 Barcode Labels.

      These are 2.25"x1.375"

      Using Zebra Designer with this label size, print items do not appear until about Y=0.36

       

      In code, setting the Label header to 0,0 misses the left hand part of the print.

      I have to set the LH to ^LH50,0 in order to see the left part of the text.

       

      I am completely mistified. Why is 0,0 NOT the top left of the label?

          Hello Kevin,

           

          Could you please to share a full ZPL code of your label?

              So in both Zebra Designer and http://labelary.com/viewer.html I used a simple ZPL

               

              ^XA^CFD

              ^POI

              ^LH0,0 //Label header set as top left

              ^FO0,5 //Move down 5 pixels

              ^FDTop Left^FS

              ^FO0,25 //Move down 25 pixels

              ^FDCity, State^FS

              ^FO0,45^GB380,1,3^FS

               

               

              ^FX Third section with barcode.

              ^BY5,2,50

              ^FO30,130^BC^FD12345678^FS

              ^XZ

               

              The Label Header is 0,0 so I can sort out where text will appear. The POI is because these labels need to be printed in reverse (i.e. heading first)

              In labelary.com it looks like this

              My printed label looks like this

              Printer Settings have

              So why is the Label Origin so far off to the left and up?

                  Firmware version for the ZD620 is V84.20.07Z

                   

                  I am unable to find on the Zebra site any Firmware downloads for the ZD620.

                      In code I am using Network printer (i.e. writing in code to the IP address and Port of the device).

                       

                      I have tried both

                      ^MUD,203,203

                      and

                      ^MUD,300,300

                       

                      both results are the same (i.e. LH 0,0 is to the left of the label physical origin)

                          Ok I think I understand what is going on. The ZD620 ONLY supports 203dpi despite the offering of ZD620 drivers for 203,300 and 600 dpi.

                           

                          If I uninstall all drivers and ONLY install the 203dpi driver then the registration is correct.

                           

                          Am I correct?

                              Hello Kevin,

                               

                              There is a good chance that you are correct because Zebra Designer could read some values from the driver and then put some ZPL commands and settings into your label file.

                               

                              In case you will have this problem again you will need to capture your print output to file as it described in this article and look inside of resulted ZPL file: Capture Printer Output to a File using the ZebraDesigner Driver

                              It may provide you some insight on what exactly is going in a wrong way.
