Printing ZPL on Toshiba

Post by uhlMZ » Mon Feb 01, 2021 11:44 am

Hello together,

we've come across a bigger problem than expected with seemingly no ideal solution.

So far we've been printing all labels as .prn files without problems on our Toshiba Printers.
Now due to changing another system the printers do now need to print .zpl files.

In Toshiba's case all the printers need to be set to "Z-Mode" to print .zpl files.
Problem is that now the printers aren't able to print the normal .prn files from NiceLabel anymore.

Is there any way to let NiceLabel recognize the Z-Mode on the Printers to send .zpl files?
Or maybe any idea how to automatically emulate the file format to the .zpl or the other way around?

Best regards
