CR 8.5: Can I programmatically set the gaps between labels?
Posted on 2004-10-20
When printing a sheet of small labels, like Avery 5267 return address labels (1.75" x .5", 80 to a sheet), the gaps between labels can become very critical. This is especially true for the last few rows of labels printed, and made even more critical if the data on the label is close to the maximum size of the label (such as printing barcode labels.)
More problems can creep in when users buy "compatible" labels, which might be off by a few hundredths of an inch. Trust me, it all adds up in the last few rows...
So, I want to offer my users the option set the vertical and horizontal gap between labels (at run time, in my VB front end.) I can see how to set the overall page margins at run time (I'm already doing that), but don't see how to set gap sizes programmatically.
Any help would be appreciated!
