NiceLabel printing order

Post by samuel.nguyen » Wed May 06, 2020 9:34 am

Hi,

We want to have another label to indicating total number of labels that had printed out.
So we design the automation like this.

For example, what we expected the printing labels order will be like this:

Code: Select all

[First request] Label 1 - Label 2 - Total1 - [Second Request] Label 3 - Label 4 - Total 2
But turn out, the actual result always like this:

Code: Select all

[First request] Label 1 - Label 2 - [Second request] Label 3 - Label 4 - Total 1 - Total 2
We even enable Synchronous Print Mode based on Automation User Guide but to no avail.

samuel.nguyen,

Based on your configured actions, printing is working as designed. Action 2.1 is "For Each Line", which means your 2.1.1.5 "Print Label" action will occur X amount of times before the Action 2.2 occurs. Probably all you need to do is move Action 2.2 to be a sub-item of your "For Each Line", so that your 'total label' is printed with each loop.

Alternatively, you may consider just using Tail Labels instead. You can enable a Tail Label in Document Properties > Batch Printing > Use tail label. There is more info on page 106 of the Designer User Guide:
