Loftware Label Manager Version 10.1 - Release Notes (10.1.0.21) July 2013

What are the new features of this release?
  • Label Versioning and Promotion - Adds the ability to track and manage changes when designing, developing, and publishing labels. You can view changes and comments made, and recover previous versions of your labels. When printing, you can dynamically set which version of a label you want to print.

    With label promotion you can move labels between environments (such as development and production) and better control the labels you print.
  • Embedded Images - Adds the ability to embed images within a label file (LWL). If you use Label Versioning, embedded images can help you keep an accurate history of the changes made to a label by eliminating the need to control images in another system. Even without Label Versioning, embedding images can help you ensure the right image prints on the right label and make it easier to share labels.
What fixes are available in this release?
  • Remote Spooler - Fixed an issue with the Windows driver that was causing Remote Spooler failures within Windows 7. This issue only occured with Windows 7 clients if the spooler was referenced in the port selection.
  • True Type Fonts - Fixed an issue with fields using True Type fonts. The fonts will now render correctly in both the Design and Data Entry views.
  • Date/Time Fields - Fields are now printed properly when used in formulas that contain Database key and data fields.
  • Barcode Bitmaps - An option was added to fail a print job in the case of an error when drawing a barcode on the label.
  • ODBC - Fixed an issue where an ODBC connection could not be established using Browse from the On Demand Print Client.
  • PCL5 and QR Code - The Loftware PCL5 driver now prints QR Code.
  • Fixed Text on Forms - Improvements made to the Character Width settings for fixed text on the On Demand Print and On Demand Print Client forms.
  • Out of Memory - Fixed an out-of-memory error when dropping certain XML jobs with UTF-16 processing instructions.
  • Fail Job on Script or Barcode Error - Print jobs will now fail by default, if there is an error running a script or generating a barcode bitmap.
  • Versioning - Fixed an issue where jobs were failing if a forward slash (/) was included in the relative path in *FORMAT and Versioning was enabled.
What issues are known about this release?
  • Sample Labels - If you make changes to the included sample labels with Label Versioning on, those changes will NOT be saved if you later reinstall or repair your Loftware Label Manager installation. If you want to modify the sample labels, save them with a different name to a new location.

Loftware Print Server Version 10.0.2 - Release Notes September 2012

What are the new features of this release?
  • Zebra® TrueType Font Handling - Significant improvements were made to the handling of TrueType fonts that have been downloaded to a Zebra printer. Using downloaded fonts can result in dramatic print-speed improvements, especially when managing multiple languages on a single label.

    Loftware recommends using ZebraNet Bridge Enterprise to download the fonts to your printer. The following table lists the font types that can be stored on a Zebra printer and the firmware version required to support the font type. See the Loftware Label Manager User Guide for more information on how to configure your system and labels to take advantage of this feature.

    Font Types

    Zebra Firmware Version Required

    .ttf (default)

    X. 13.X or higher

    .tte and .ttf

    X. 14.X or higher

    .fnt

    All versions


  • UTF-8 Encoding for Zebra Printers - Support was added for UTF-8 encoding in fields that use native scalable fonts on labels designed for Zebra printers and the ZPL II Printer Family Driver.

    Note: The firmware installed in the Zebra printer must be V60.14.x, V50.14.x, or later.
  • Label Comments - You can now associate comments with a label version. When label commenting is enabled, you can configure comments to be required or optional upon saving a label.
  • Bar Width Adjustment - You can now adjust the bar width on Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes to compensate for variable ink spread. This option is only available for Windows printers.
  • Printer Family Driver Expansion - Added the ability to select a printer family driver as the printer model for the manufacturers that support the language associated with the printer family driver. This allows broader support for the different print vendor printer language emulations.

What issues are known about this release?
  • NULL Characters in PAS File - A PAS file that contains a NULL character may print correctly, but
    it will not appear complete in the Status Client using the Resend function.
  • Intermec Direct Protocol family driver - A non-printing field that is off the label can cause the
    printer to fault with a "Field out of label" error.
  • IP Printer Error Could Shut Down LPS - Labels sent to a printer can appear to have printed
    when they did not if an IP-port connected printer is paused, causing it to error, the print buffer is
    filled, and then the LPS is shut down. *As a workaround for Zebra (ZPLII) and Intermec (IPL or Direct Protocol) printers you can enable Detailed Status (with Pre-Label Status and Wait on Errors enabled). This will prevent a label from being sent to the printer until any errors at the printer are cleared.
  • Batch Print Error - A batch print error when multiple printers are offline may be related to a Microsoft issue. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898468
  • Canceled Install - When canceling an install, a Loftware_Group user group may be created even if the installer indicates the system has not been modified
  • Windows Printers - LPS/LLM do not account for Windows printer margins.

  • Force Max # Char - The Do not force Max # Char setting is not honored on text fields when processing drop file .
  • Detailed Status - When Fail on Errors is enabled, the wrong status type is reported after failure.
  • Adobe Acrobat Printer - The Loftware Print Server will eventually stop printing and jobs will go into a pending state when using an Adobe Acrobat printer version 9.0 or higher. This occurs when the LPS is run as a service, and the cause appears to be a defect in the most recent versions of Adobe Acrobat. *Adobe Acrobat version 7.0 does not exhibit this behavior, nor does it occur when the LPS is run in Interactive mode. Other PDF creators, such as CutePDF™, do not exhibit this behavior.
  • Disabling Detailed Status - When you disable Detailed Status, the Disable Status Checking and Force Extended Mode options remain enabled (they are enabled when Detailed Status Checking is enabled) on the Configuring Existing Device Connection Settings dialog. You must clear these options after disabling detailed status to disable them.
