Labels With Marks Setting With Gk420D Follow
Using: Seagull Windows Driver version 7.3.3 & version 7.3.5, using the GK420D - EPL driver. Printers are both Zebra GK420D, one brand new, one several months old. Using 2.20"x0.5" labels with marks on the back of the roll.
I am able to calibrate the printer no problem, it advances exactly one label when pressing the feed button as expected. I am also able to print a single label no problem.
In the Printing Preferences of the Seagull Driver I select "Labels with Marks" and set my Mark Height and Mark Offset fields. I then hit Apply and OK. When I return to the Printing Preferences section, it has reverted my settings to "Labels with Gaps" and the Mark Offset value is back to 0. The printer then has trouble finding the gaps one the second print after each calibration (as would be expected when using marked labels with the gaps setting).
If I install the Seagull Driver and point it to an unused Printer Port, I am able to change the setting and it stays, but as soon as I change the Port to the correct Printer Port (USB in this case), the next time I go into Preferences the setting has reverted again to "Labels with Gaps."
It doesn't matter what program I print from, the fundamental problem is it's treating marked labels as gap labels, and behaves the same no matter what other things I try. This has been attempted from two seperate computers with two seperate GK420D printers, both of which work fine with the same driver and a different size label on a non-marked roll.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
