We use Bartender to print thermal labels on a Zebra printer and each night the settings revert back to direct instead of thermal. Any ideas on how to get the settings to be permanent ?

BarTender embeds and saves the printer driver settings as part of the BarTender label document. To modify these settings for a document open the Print dialog via the "File>Print" menu item and click the "Document Properties" button. This will open up the printing preferences of the driver from where you may configure the settings as you wish -- for this particular BarTender document. Once done, click "OK" and then "Close", but then be sure to save the document (A.K.A. BarTender format file) via the "File>Save" menu item, to ensure that any changes are kept for future use.

Thanks but unfortunately we do have that set but the printers randomly revert to the other setting still.

Merlin,

Ian is right, the BarTender file can be saved with these settings. And there is no reason why they shouldn't be correctly sending with the job each time. See my attached screenshot for the screen you want to change in the [b]Document Properties[/b] screen, accessible from your Print Dialog. So unless this screen isn't set up correctly, and/or another job you have may be set with the wrong choice ("Direct Thermal"), then your printer should be holding the settings.

If you do not see a screen like this, you may not be running the Seagull driver for Zebra printers.

Check the printer driver properties via the "Tools" tab, "Driver Options" button, and then the "Network settings" tab. Make sure that the "Share settings between all documents" checkbox is unticked. Here is an explanation of what this setting does.

Share settings between all documents:
Some applications store printing preferences when saving documents. When this feature is enabled, the printing preferences specified from the Printers Folder will always be used, and any settings stored with documents will be ignored.

Hi

 

For the thermal label printer , 

Maybe it does matter with print mode. firstly you could select the type of media you are using in the application.

For Thermal Transfer -----Using Ribbon. 
For direct thermal ----Not using Ribbon. The media has a heat sensitive coating that darkens when heated.

 

Hope it could help you.
