Issue / Question

How do I feed a Blank Label or Separator Page after Print Jobs

Applicable To

Printers compatible up to the ZDesigner v5 Driver for Windows

Resolution / Answer

These instructions are for a ZPL printer. 
 
Right click the driver then choose Print Preferences.  
The following screen appears with a tab for Custom Commands. 
 
 
 
 Choose Text from the drop down list under End. 
 
 
 
The Custom Command Text box will be available to enter the ZPL commands. 
 

 

^XA  
^FD  
^XZ


 
Key to feeding a blank label is that there is a single space (hit the space bar) after the ^FD 

 
You will then be able to send multiple copies and feed a blank after the last label printed.   
 
The ZebraDesigner driver does send separate code for each job but using the End / Text option means 
the ZPL to feed a blank label is only sent once at the end of the jobs. 
  
Note: - see the EPL / CPCL Programming Guides or contact support if you are not using a Zebra printer with ZPL support.

Options on the Advances tab of the ZebraDesigner driver, such as Separator Page, are present in all drivers that follow Microsoft printer driver development standards.  
They are controlled by the Operating System and its Spooler and may not have any effect on the ZebraDesigner driver or Zebra printers.
