Printing Spine Labels

Settings on the Physical Printer

  1. Make sure the "Paper Release Lever" on the right side of the printer is set to Level One (inside right)
  2. Make sure the tractor feed lever is set in position 2 from top (outside right)
  3. Vertical alignment of tractor feed labels - line up bottom edge of last label with edge of printer where labels feed in to paten (use the LF (line button on front of printer to adjust incrementally)
  4. Horizontal alignment - 43 mm from edge of printer flange to edge of tractor feed label stock.

(Note: all other options for setting font, cpi, etc. indicators on the front of the printer will be overridden by Millennium software settings as outlined below).  Tip: If you lift the plastic cover and the printer beeps, that means it has moved offline despite still being powered on.  This can cause a disconnect with the PC.  Power "operate button" off/on to clear buffer.
