 The following changes/additions have been made:

1. TSC driver fixes
Corrected problems with ITF-14 symbols. Added printer test option. Fixed problem with reverse text fields. Allow for check digits for code 39, interleaved 2 of 5, MSI, Codabar, and NW7 symbols.

2. Bar Code Wizard
Changes to the bar code wizard to correct some problems when running in languages other than English. Some text was being truncated in several of the dialog boxes.

3. 2D symbols
Corrected a problem where some 2D symbols (DataMatrix, MicroPDF, etc.) were not sized correctly if they are using “when printed” data source.

4. Font Conversion
When converting label formats from one printer family to another (from Zebra to Datamax for example) some internal printer fonts were not converted correctly. Internal printer fonts are now converted to similar sized TrueType fonts.

5. RSS-14 symbols
Corrected a problem when printing RSS-14 symbols sometimes caused a program crash.

6. Label Height
Removed limitation on label height. It is possible to enter a value greater than some printers allow, but this can sometimes be corrected by adding more memory to the printer.

7. Bar Code Height
Removed limitation on bar code height. The height of a bar code is only limited by the size of the label.

8. Datamax I and W class
The “standard” driver for the I and W class Datamax printers now allows bidirectional parallel.

9. Datamax clock settings
The Datamax drivers now have printer configuration option of whether to set the printer clock to match the PC system clock.

10. ADO database interface
Several corrections to the ADO database interface. Fixed problem where the column size was 1 greater than the actual column width. Fixed problem where NULL values left the previous record contents in the data buffer. Fixed problem where BOOLEAN data types had an incorrect value for “true”.

11. Printer configuration
Right clicking on a printer now properly selects the printer. Corrected problem when selecting printer manufacturer and not selecting a printer model caused bad configuration data to be saved.

12. DataMatrix symbols and double-byte characters
Fixed problem where certain double-byte characters were not encoded correctly. This was mainly a problem when encoding Japanese or Chinese characters.

13. Datamax driver fixes
Fix to allow for lines and boxes bigger than 9.99 inches. Fix to allow DataMatrix symbols to be processed by the printer instead of being sent as a graphic image.

14. Printronix driver changes
Added “presentation position” option. Added “flip format”, “reverse image”, and “initial label feed” options. Added darkness adjustment to printer configuration. Added “job separator”, and “pass through” options. Added alternate styles for TrueType fonts. Allow default character width for TrueType fonts. Added printer test and printer reset functions. Allow for slanted and circular arc for TrueType text fields. Added NW7 symbology. Fixed Code 128 numeric interpretation problem. Added text justification options (left, center, right). Added print modes for Batch, Peel, and Tear. Fixed length problem with Codabar symbols using check digits. Corrected problems with UPC/EAN symbols. Fixed some incrementation problems.

15. Sato driver changes
Added option in printer configuration to allow for setting the printer clock to match the PC clock. Added printer test option.

16. TEC printers
Corrected problems when jobs were cancelled, the printer was not properly reset before the next job was sent, causing errors in the printer.

17. Page sizes
Corrected problems in the HP and Windows printer drivers where certain checks were made against the maximum page size, not the currently selected page size.

18. Text and Bar Code stretching
Fixed a problem where text or bar code fields that were stretched using the mouse did not correctly calculate the final field size.

19. Zebra driver changes
Fixed crash when using the “Print ID label” option. Fixed problem with TrueType fonts using a width of 0. Allow for larger bar width multiplier for some symbols.

20. Reports
Fixed problem of getting “unable to access report printer” error when opening a report file.

21. Right click field properties
Fixed problem of right-clicking on a field and selecting field properties. Sometimes you would get properties for more than one field if there was already a field selected and you right-click on a different field.

22. EASYLABEL database
Added ability to use “hot keys” for any of the buttons in the database dialogs. For example, you can now use “ALT+A” to add a record to a database. Corrected problem where the toolbar button for “data sheet” becomes disabled.

23. Print using 2 databases
Fixed problem in the selection screen when there are 2 database search keys.

24. ActiveX changes
Fixed problem when requesting status of a job that was already completed. The ActiveX server now is self-registering. Fixed ELabelInfo control to allow the “Field” properties to be displayed in Visual Basic.

25. Windows printers
Corrected problem when printing multi-across and multi-down and the label count does not completely fill an entire page.

26. Increment/Decrement fields
Corrected a problem where entering 0 as the change amount caused an error to be displayed even if a valid change amount was subsequently entered.

26. New LBLCOUNT database keyword
If a column in a database is named “LBLCOUNT” then the value of this column becomes the default batch size when printing single database records.

27. Toolbar field name
The drop down list in the toolbar that shows all of the field names is now sorted by field type then field name.

28. Zebra format conversion from DOS
Corrected problems converting from DOS formats. The wrong printer model code was selected and the wrong print head DPI (dots per inch) was used. This caused problems with text fields and bar code fields being incorrectly sized.
