Avery Dennison AP 5.4 200 DPI
Avery Dennison AP 5.4 300 DPI

 The following changes/additions have been made:

1. New features for EASYLABEL Silver
EASYLABEL Silver now includes the ability to increment or decrement fields. Also added was the ability to create multi-line text fields (paragraphs).

2. Arithmetic rounding
Fixed problem where rounding was not performed on fields defined as “Arithmetic”. The value was being truncated instead of rounding up, as in previous versions of EASYLABEL.

3. Sato multi-up labels
On some Sato printers using multi-up label formats, there was a problem with graphic images (picture fields). In some cases the graphics were not duplicated correctly on all of the formats across the label.

4. Zebra “Plus” model printers
Added support for the “Plus” models of the following Zebra printers: 90XiIII, 96XiIII, 140XiIII, 170XiIII, and 220XiIII.

5. Apollo “repeat prompt” with database
Added feature to the Apollo driver to allow downloaded formats using a database to specify the database search key as the “repeat prompt” field. After printing a set of labels, the printer will return to the specified prompt for entry of additional data.

6. Circular Arc text fields
Corrected a problem where circular arc text fields using TrueType fonts and setting “Field Contrast” to “Reverse” printed outside of the arc, creating an uneven edge.

7. HP print test
Added ability to print a test page, to verify that printer is properly connected.

8. Apollo protocol errors
Corrected problem where the Apollo printer would give a protocol error in some cases of text fields using TrueType fonts, and the “download font” option was set to “No”.

9. Apollo download format and label counts
Corrected a problem when downloading a format to the Apollo and selecting “indefinite” as the print quantity. The printer would still prompt for a quantity.

10. Apollo clock settings
Added printer configuration option to the Apollo printers to allow the printer driver to automatically set the printer clock to match the system clock.

11. Apollo incremented fields
Corrected a problem in the Apollo driver where incremented fields would not increment if “resend downloaded data” was enabled in the program options.

12. Apollo serial baud rates
Added several higher baud rates (115,200 and 230,400) to the A-series Apollo printers.

13. Apollo download and lowercase field names
The Apollo printer did not like field names that contain lowercase letters, even though these are valid field names. When downloaded to the printer, all lowercase field names are converted to uppercase.

14. Apollo download and “cut after batch”
Corrected a problem where downloaded formats that use the “cut after batch” option did not cut after each batch, but at the end of the job.

15. Apollo scalable fonts
Corrected a problem with the Apollo driver where scalable fonts that were stretched using the mouse would shrink to a very small size.

16. Intermec and TCP/IP printing
Added ability to do hardware reset and printer test functions when connected via TCP/IP network.

17. Intermec field center/justify
Added ability to do center and right justified fields.

18. Intermec printer test
Added ability to print a test page, to verify that printer is properly connected.

19. Novexx driver changes
Added ability to do reverse image labels on supported printer models. Scalable fonts can now be stretched using the sizing handles of the text field. Reverse, slanted, and circular arc is now allowed for text fields using TrueType fonts. Fixed problem with stretching scalable font fields that caused the text to become very small. Added option for feed offset and job separator. Text fields using TrueType fonts now allow for the “full justify” option. Added options for checkdigits and ratios for the Codabar and NW7 symbologies.

20. Sato and Code128 with Function 1
Corrected problem where a Code128 symbol with added function 1 character would not encode the function 1 if the source of data for the symbol included a date or time field.

21. Sato set clock option
Added printer configuration option to the Sato printers to allow the printer driver to automatically set the printer clock to match the system clock.

22. Sato printer test
Added ability to print a test page, to verify that printer is properly connected.

23. Sato print darkness setting
Corrected a problem in the Sato driver where the darkness setting would change if the label format was converted from one Sato printer to another.

24. TEC printer test
Added ability to print a test page, to verify that printer is properly connected.

25. TSC text style options
The TSC driver now allows for alternate styles of text in a text paragraph field when using TrueType fonts.

26. TSC printer test
Added ability to print a test page, to verify that printer is properly connected.

27. Zebra set clock option
Added printer configuration option to the Zebra printers to allow the printer driver to automatically set the printer clock to match the system clock.

28. Zebra circle field
Certain Zebra printer models can now print circles. This requires a certain version of firmware for the printer.

29. Zebra and reverse 2D symbols
The Zebra driver no longer allows for reverse image of a 2D symbology.

30. Zebra and TrueType fonts
Fixed a problem with TrueType fonts using default character width. In some cases the program would give an error if the field orientation was changed.

31. Sato and text paragraphs
The Sato printer driver did not allow for right justification of text paragraphs. This capability has been added for all Sato printers.

32. Printronix, Novexx, and TSC slow printing using incremented fields
There was a problem in these printer drivers that caused the labels to be sent one at a time instead of letting the printer increment the fields.
