Print Darkness

Post by stapeliads » Wed Sep 11, 2019 10:49 pm

Hi - I have NiceLabel 2017. When I go to print, I have to manually change the print darkness. Is there a setting to keep the darkness at a certain level for all printings?

Thanks!

You can manually set the darkness in the label by going to the document properties then clicking on the printer properties button and then adjusting the darkness, this will save the darkness in the label.

When you change the darkness at print time, it only overwrites that setting for the current printjob

Thanks! Must I do this for each individual label file I have? Is there a way to set the darkness for all labels?

Stapeliads,

You can set the labels to use the settings in the printer driver which all labels will open the printer driver settings in windows

Stapliads,

In the new label setup wizard, it will ask you how you want to set the settings

if you have labels already created you can go into the document properties (1) and then change the properties of where the settings are saved (2)

Stapeliads,

You will go into control Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers, right-click the printer you want to change settings for and select "printing preferences" and then adjust the darkness there.
