Hello

We are using bartender 9.3 with commander. Printer is a Zebra 140XiIII using the bartender drivers. when commander picks up the file, the printer starts printing but it prints the 1st label. then waits 45-60secs before printing the next label. any ideas on what would cause this?

thanks

If you were to print more than two labels is there a long delay between each label printing? In such a situation the delay of consecutive labels printing is caused by the amount of data being sent to the printer on a per label basis.

1. Make sure the latest printer driver from Seagull is in use.

2. Try to use device fonts for text objects instead of Windows fonts like Arial.

3. Make sure the Performance features of BarTender are enabled via the "Print" dialog under the "Performance" tab.

4. If there are any picture objects used on the label try to make sure that they are optimized for printing. That is of a size and resolution that is more of less equal to how it will be printed.

More details on print optimization can be found at the below white paper.

If you don't have a "Performance" tab in the "Print" dialog when using the Zebra printer then you are not using a Seagull printer driver. If you open the properties of the driver and select the "About" tab do you see a "Drivers by Seagull" graphic.

Our printer drivers can be downloaded from the below link:

I would advise that you remove the Zebra drivers you currently have installed and then install using the driver you download at the above page.
