^LS

The
^LS
command allows for compatibility with Z-130 printer formats that are set for less than full label width. It is used to shift all field positions to the left so the same commands used on a Z-130 or Z-220 Printer can be used on other Zebra printers.

Label Shift

To determine the value for the
^LS
command, use this formula:
Z-130 and Z-220 values for ^LHx + ^FOx
(distance from edge of label) = printer value for
^LSa
If the print position is less than 0, set
^LS
to 0.
Format:
^LSa
The ability to save the
^LS
command depends on the version of firmware.
Parameters
Details
a =
shift left value (in dots)
Values:
-9999
to
9999
Initial Value at Power Up:
0
Comments:
When entering positive values, it is not necessary to use the + sign. The value is assumed to be positive unless preceded by a negative sign (-).
To be compatible with existing Zebra printers, this command must come before the first
^FS
(Field Separator) command. Once you have issued an
^LS
command, the setting is retained until you turn off the printer or send a new
^LS
command to the printer.
