Is it possible to set a label to print on the condition of another label printing.

 

I.e Label A prints to Printer A and on doing so label B will print to Printer B automatically.

 

Very new to Bartender.

I have an idea how to do this myself...

 

I can print label A which will output to a .txt file and commander then picks this up and prints it to printer A then renames this txt file to .nxt and prints that to printer B

After it prints on printer B it can rename the .nxt file as .ded to show the process is completed.

 

But I am now having trouble getting bartender to output to .txt file

If you're using Commander for instigating print jobs, then why don't you just specify two print commands in the task list or trigger file to accomplish what you want?

My plan didn't actually work - you cannot use bartender to populate a .txt file because it adds rubbish (control characters) to the file.  So I am back to wishing to be able to print a label from print station and that automatically triggering another label printing on a different printer

Have you tried creating a batch of labels in Batch Maker, and then printing the batch file you created from Print Station?
