Apologies if I am addressing material already covered. I did perform a
cursory examination of the archive after being in no-mail status for an
extended time, without success.
The continuous feed spine labels we have been using with our Okidata 390
printers for 5 years since we migrated to III have been discontinued.
As far as we could tell at the time of migration, these were the only
label stock that would come close to lining up properly, both vertically
and horizontally. We did have a bit of drift with each label, but
manually adjusted for this every few labels. The interaction between
Millennium and our printers dictated a label stock that would line up
hard against the left stops of the printer.
We were hoping that the new printing profiles in Release 2007 would
address our ongoing concerns, which have become more pressing with the
discontinuation of our current label stock. The supplied Is101Gaylord
template is a) configured for full sheet laser printing and b) lacks the
decimal point before the first cutter which we have used.
We would like to continue our continuous feed based workflows and we
would like to retain our current LC printing style, with a decimal point
before the first cutter. So, has anyone developed a template for
Release 2007 that accommodates DRA1, SP1, or Single Vertical label stock
from the Gaylord catalog, in the LC format? Alternatively, does anyone
know how to indent the printing position under the pre-2007 printing
mode so that the printing on these label stocks will properly align
along their left side?
