Details

Centering variable text and centering bar codes with variable data is an available feature of ZebraDesigner Pro Version 2 software programs.  You can center text or bar codes on your label by pressing and holding the Ctrl key then clicking the Center option from the Design Toolbar.  The example that follows uses the CARS.xls sample file in the folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Zebra Technologies\ZebraDesigner Pro 2\Samples\Database

The first record of text or variable bar code data are centered on screen but if the length of the data varies, by default print position will stay anchored to the left edge.  With the latest versions of ZebraDesigner and ZebraDesigner Pro, it is now possible to move this anchor point.  Notice that when you left click on the text or bar code the upper left anchor point shows a green dot but the center is a hollow box.

If you press and hold the control key then click the hollow box the green will shift to the box.  Repeat this for each variable text prompt or variable database field on a label that you wish to move the anchor point for.  
 

Use Print Preview to demonstrate actual print results.
