At this time the requirement for entering a print quantity cannot be bypassed. If the scanner you are using has a programming feature you may be able to enable a work around. 

In sequence

1. Send the scanned data

2. Introduce a slight delay

3. Send a Carriage Return/Line Feed from the scanner

4. A single label should print

This should avoid the need to enter a print quantity.
