Only a limited Test Print is supported when printing directly from ZebraDesigner for mySAP

The purpose of ZebraDesigner for mySAP is to generate .ITF files that include a combination of ZPL and SAP script.  The .ITF file is then uploaded into SAP in order to print a label that contains SAP data. The label is designer to be printed through SAP, not through ZebraDesigner. Printer selection is done only so that the ZPL that is imbedded in the generated .ITF file is correct for that specific printer.

Printing from ZebraDesigner for mySAP is not supported.

In order to confirm that the ZPL that is in the .ITF file is valid, a Test Print can be selected or the label can print if you send the .ITF file to the printer port, however the data elements printed will be the names of the SAP variables or sample data, not the data that will be printed when the .ITF file is used properly within SAP. It is also important to note that Test Print occurs with the software available at print time. When printing with the ITF file the software is not running at print time. There are instances where print results will differ.
