ZebraDesigner Software being used with a printer using a cutter


To adjust the cut position set the "Tear Off" adjustment parameter in the driver Properties.

  • Open the ZebraDesigner driver Properties and go to the "Advanced Setup" tab.
  • Check the "Tear off" Operation mode.
  • Change the value in the "Tear Off Adjustment" field to change the cut position.   A positive value will move it towards the unprinted label, a negative value will move it towards the just printed label.
  • Click "OK"
  • Check the "Cutter" Operation mode.
  • The "Tear Off Adjustment" will still be applied even though the entry position is grayed out on the display.
