There is a problem with the print preview. There is no space between the letters. :(

Of course if we enlarge the x dimension of the driver enlarges the distance between letters but naturally also enlarges the x dimension of the barcode… :(

How could we solve this? (IE to enlarge the spacing of letters without enlarges the barcode...)

I still have no time to test it, because this software and printer are installed on one of my computers located in different place.
But, tomorrow is holiday, maybe I'll find a few time to work over it.

Because the problem is only in preview and not in printing, I think that is not so important.. :|

But tomorrow is holiday for us too… so we’ll find time to York on it .. :D

Hi!
I'm testing label manager with fonts created by ZDesigner TLP 2824 and effects are poor :-( and not better than barcodes created by zebra library.
Here are labels printed by both methods - by creating image and by fonts defined in driver:
Image

It's strange, but when I print picture created by CorelDraw, lines are smooth: (lines look better in real than on this picture :-) )

Hi Mol,

If you got this driver

Image

and you have create your fonts that you see here

Image

if the preview is something like this

Image

and you barcode print is so bad, then something does not go well.
Because I print barcode code128 1 cm wide and look perfect.

Can you send me please your code for print with my own printer?

Hi Nikos!
I've changed code in my big application for store management, I can send it of course, but, it will be hard to test it.
I'll try to make changes in standalone label manager.

I've created fonts it the way, yo've described it and results were as on photos.
I've tried to change teperature of print - little better, but still poor.
