Zebra High Quality Print
Last Updated On
You are here:
To get a higher quality printout from a Zebra printer, the printer needs to be set up on any computer that is always online and shared to the network. The NAV service user must be able to print to the machine using its absolute address (e.g., \\machine\printer) and not the share name.
Complete the following to set up in NAV or Business Central on prem:
- Change the Carrier Label Print Type to ZPL in Dynamic Ship Setup.
- Add the Carrier Label Report ID 23044601 to Printer Selection using the absolute printer name (not the share name). This needs to be manually added to the table before it can be selected.
Print results are stored for troubleshooting purposes only and are not user observable via the UI. You can access print results by running table DSHIP Label Data (23044622) directly and filtering to the correct License Plate. Specific errors are in the Event Viewer of the machine running the NAV service.
ZPL is proprietary to Zebra brand printers and are not usable by any other brand of printers including printing to PDF.
If everything on the label looks fuzzy, disable the dithering settings for that printer.
