Hi All,

I am designing a small label (2.3 X 1.8 cm) to be printed in ZT230 Zebra printer.

There are a few fields that have to be rotated 90 degress, and few fields without rotation. The command S_LZPL_SETUP = ^FWR' rotates all the fields. But I need rotation for only a few fields. I searched a lot, but could not find any way. Any inputs will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Look for the ZPL II programming guides online - do a Google search or follow the links below, they have all the specific ZPL codes. The specific field rotation depends on the type of font that you are using. In general it would be in the ^Axx command for human readable and ^Bxx for barcodes. The third position is where your rotation goes... ^A0N would be normal and ^A0R would be rotated for the human readable font "0".

Thanks for your reply. The problem I am facing is that I am not able to set printer commands for a few fields. It is either all or none. All fields are rotated if I create a command node with a printer command. This is also what I understood from Note # 750772
