How to print a ZPL Label to a pdf file

Hi,

I'm currently searching for a solution that can print my ZPL code to a PDF file. It seems unfindable and I doubt it will be possible, but for my last hope, I'm asking it over here. Does anyone ever exported a ZPL file/code to a visible label in PDF? If so, how?

Thanks in advance..

Greetings,

Jeroen

ZPL is the programming language for the Zebra Z model printers.  There is no way to print the output to a PDF.

Not sure if it would work in this instance, but if you can send it to a printer, you can send it to CutePDF - which will convert it to .pdf.  It installs just like a printer and is used the same way, only instead of sending the output to a printer, it converts it to .pdf and saves it.
www.cutepdf.com

Best of luck.

That will not work for ZPL.  ZPL is a programming language specific to the Zebra Z model printers.   When you send properly formatted ZPL code it prints out labels according the the file.  The printers does all of the formatting, etc.   The Windows print driver converts regularly formatted files (Word, Excel, Notepad) into ZPL and then sends it to the printer.
