Wasting 3-5 labels when changing roll/size. Zebra GK420d

Post by snorkrat » Fri Mar 04, 2016 10:53 am

Hi,

I am using a Zebra GK420d with NiceDrivers. I have downloaded the trial of NiceLabel Pro to see if it will work for my needs.

I use 3 different label sizes. My problem is that when changing rolls (either to a new label size or when I run out of labels on a roll) to start or continue printing I have to feed a label by pressing the label feed button on the zebra printer, as the printer "pauses" when I open to change rolls. However it wastes/uses 3-5 labels doing this and also the first 1 or 2 labels that print are not aligned correctly. After this it works fine, but as I do not print large quantities of labels at once, and change label sizes often, it's quite a pain and it is very wasteful.

Any help to fix this would be great!

Thanks,
Scott.

This is printer's behavior, not NiceLabel's.

Try to find some setting on the printer that would force the printer to calibrate labels faster...
