Part of the Label Gets Cut Off When Print – CODESOFT Problem Article

Summary

This article explores the problem with CODESOFT where the printed label appears to be cutoff at the exact spot on every label.  A proposed solution based on using the Automatic Sizing feature is also provided below.

Symptoms

  • Using CODESOFT to print labels
  • Printed label appears to be cutoff at the exact spot on every label (either the right side or the bottom)
  • In the label dimension definition, everything looks as it should be

Explanation

The page setting in the label properties may be the cause. CODESOFT allows user to define the page size to be smaller than the label size. It does give a small warning at the bottom of the properties window.

Example

This label is 4″x2″ as seen on the CODESOFT primary design screen.

This picture shows the label size is set correctly at 4″ x 2″

This picture shows the page size is set to 3″ x 2″. Notice the small warning at the bottom of the window.

Solution

The solution to this issue is to correctly set the page size. The alternative is to check the Automatic sizing box.
