Barcode alignment / horizontal / vertical w/ sapscript


Hello everyone!

I am developing a sheet of labels wearing a EAN13 Barcode. It has 56 labels (german brand, no 3668) on a sheet. one label is presented by one instance of the main window, the "First" Page consists of 56 page windows.

i put the structure into a form in sapscript and for any label on its position i do call a new window and write its contents into it. ( A Barcode of EAN and under or above the barcode i would like to see one line of text).

What happened till now?

I have copied BC_EAN13 to a ZBarcode in both a system and a printer barcode.

The barcode is printed via DIMM Module and it works. It is now 5 mm high and 35 mm wide, what should easily fit into a 52,5 * 21,2 mm label.

Problem: 1st line - barcode is truncated. if i add lines in the form as spacers, it does not move below so that i can ensure ideal positioning on the sheet.

on the label sheet there´s no border, i even tried the option baseline alignment, but it made it even worse.

So: problem is how to find exact position of the barcode on a label sheet. how to move it a little bit below, find space for one line of text and print all 56 labels on a sheet without the first line being truncated.

please also advice if the printer can not print sheets borderless (HP4350 cyrillic ´version).
