Designing A 12" Label Using 2X 6" Columns
We have a bunch of 12" labels that are "wraps" set up in the system. The way we do them is to create a 6" label and have it print a second column that is a duplicate of the first and set the page size as 12x4.
When printing from the BarTender (10.1 SR4) software they work great! However, when printing through commander the labels only get printed as a single 6" label; the second "column" doesn't print, but it places the next 6" copy on the same 12" label.
The reason we want to do this is because if a partner needs to make a change on the label we don't want to have to make the change in two spots.
- I need 3 12" wraps printed.
- When I print from the BarTender software and specify that I want 3 copies I have 3 12" wraps print out and each of them has the correct template mirrored on the second have of the 12" label stock.
- When I print through Commander I get 2 12" labels, but the last label has nothing printed on the second have of the label stock.
- Essentially Commander is thinking that it is printing 3 6" labels and just scrunching them down...
How do I get commander to print the template correctly or change the design to make this work (I'd rather not have to update two sections to a template when an update is needed)?
I've attached images of my page setup to help explain what I'm trying to do.
Also, apparently to see the images you have to open and click "save" to see the full size...0
Any assistance with this would be appreciated.0
Are you connecting to a data file or something to print these? When using BarTender directly do you ask for two copies of each record? If this is what you're doing then you would need to ask for two copies of each record in your Commander task or trigger file.0
Correct, we are using a data file and we do ask for two copies of each record when printing from the app.
I assumed it had something to do with requesting 2 copies, but I wasn't sure how to force Bartender to do that for JUST the 12" labels. We don't want that for the 6" labels...
Is there a way to differentiate the two?
Edit: I found the configuration in the flat files that we create. I'll have to figure out how we are making those flat files (I'm new to the company and am trying to figure all of this out).
Thanks for your help!0
