Printing in "text mode" from Internet Explorer
Posted on 2010-11-25
I have a Zebra LP 2824 label printer, which has it's own built-in fonts for handling simple text. I want to print labels on it from Internet Explorer. I've installed the driver supplied from Zebra.
I can print from NotePad, (which of course is simple text). But Internet explorer takes more than ten seconds to respond, and then only prints a blank label, even from a *.txt file.
I would think the driver would look at what modes IE8 can send, what modes the printer can recieve, and either find a match or throw an error to the screen. But instead, a delay and then blank label.
What does it take to make a simple label printer work with Internet Explorer?
