How to shift the template to the left? Follow


When a new template is created, its left border is always at the mark 0 on the horizontal ruler above. I'd like to shift the template to the left, so that its left border would be at the mark -10 instead of 0. How can I do this?

You cant. 0,0 is always the co-ordinates of the top left corner of your label template. Most of the printer commands (for your traditional label printers) are sent to them in dots per inch or per millimetre calculated from that point.

With some devices you can include a "column" offset or similar to move the start of print position over (depending on the printer and its parameters) but that is controlled via the driver and will not effect the 0,0 top left setting anyway. If this is the kind of thing you are trying to achieve then checkout the Printer Properties>Page Setup>Advanced Options screen in one of Seagull's driver as that is where this adjustment would be if it exists.
