Label printing in S4HANA Cloud - to dot matrix text driver printer?

52 Views Last edit Sep 21 at 07:06 AM 2 rev


We have a requirement to print shipping labels from S4HC, and our consultants have done the work to get us there. There is a form setup in Adobe LifeCycle designer, which we can print and that's your labels output.

The problem is, we have dot matrix, tractor fed shipping label printers. They only print using basic text based printer drivers, so limited fonts and no formatting or logos etc.

Is there a way to achieve this at all? The S4HC print queue type is PDF, I half expected if the form was basic with no images and just basic courier font text items, it would still output on a text only dot matrix printer. But it doesn't work.

Just wondering if anybody out there has an answer? Or if a modern printer is the only way.

Thanks, Alan
