Status Bar Printer Selection

Status Bar Printer Selection dropdown list allows instant printer selection for label printing. The list is populated with printers, which are installed on the system.

Design surface dimensions adapt to the selected printer automatically – as defined by the printer driver.

Windows Printing Mode

When designing and printing labels with Designer, it is recommended to use NiceLabel printer drivers to ensure an optimal printing output.

Although the NiceLabel printer driver is available for your printer, you can still print labels using the Windows printer driver. To achieve this, open label properties and disable the use of advanced printer interface.

When printing in Windows mode, the labels print as graphic files. This increases the amount of data sent for each label and can slow down the printing process.
