Printing To Multiple Printers From The Same Document And Pausing The Printer After X Number Of Labels Follow

Legacy Poster

When we had one zebra printer I liked to control the printer from the driver and store its settings with each document. Since we acquired a 2nd printer I find this an inefficient method since every time I switch printers using the same document I keep having to reset the driver settings. I now rely on saving the settings on each printer. Is there a way to save multiple driver settings in the same document. the printer models are z170xi3 and z170xi4.


finally, I would like to know if there is a way to pause the printer (via  Bartender) after a specific quantity of printed labels when printing from a range of database records. for example, each record requires 3000 labels, each roll has 3000 labels plus some spares. I want to avoid printing the next record in the range on these spare labels. Pausing the printer after 3000 labels would allow me to change the rolls....

BarTender documents only hold a single set of printer driver configuration.  However, the two models you mention are pretty much interchangeable with the settings able to transfer from one to another.  Are you using a Seagull printer driver for each model, or are you perhaps using a driver from another vendor somewhere?


In the BarTender  "Page Setup" dialog under the "Media Handling" tab you can set the printer to pause a specific event you specify.  Again, make sure a Seagull printer driver is in use for both printers.
