Zebra 170Xi4 300 (Or 304?) Dpi Follow
I have a strange issue with the driver of a brand new Zebra 170Xi4 300 dpi. (driver version 7.2 and 7.3)
The problem is that everything is scaled about 1-2% so e.g. a line that in Bartender is 88 mm it is almost 90 mm on the printed label.
What "solves" the issue is to go to the driver, chose Tools -> Driver Options -> Override printer settings and set the resolution to 300 instead of 304 dpi.
It just feels wrong to do like this because for sure this printer is 304 dpi (12 dots / mm)????
With the ZebraDesigner driver from Zebra it works.
What might have caused this issue? I have printed both from Bartender and a 3rd party product to rule out printer software bugs.
Let me just add that the following zpl produces a result consistent with 300 dpi. The distance between the two text objects is almost 68mm.
