Zebra Landscape Issue

Zebra Landscape Issue

Zebra Landscape Issue

Hello All,

I am experiencing an Issue with a Zebra LP2844 being driven by the latest drivers in a Windows RDP Environment. The printer is installed on Wireless print server, with a static IP Address. Currently our companies software application uses ReportPro (*.RPT) for reporting, and then goes to the windows print functions. The issue we are seeing is that the FIRST label that is printed from the printer comes out in the correct format. The SECOND label (and every subsequent label) the printer generates, is oriented in the wrong direction (2 x 4 instead of 4 x 2) and only 1/4" is visible on the label. This will continue until I generate a new set of barcode reads (Which induces the windows printer selection screen) and the behavior repeats itself. We did (for a while) have our programmer change the software to force the printer selection at EACH barcode read. This time the printer would ONLY print in the proper orientation if I went into print properties and selected "Portrait" manually. (Even though the default IS portrait, and the selection was set to portrait). It made me actually CLICK on portrait for it to work. We have pulled our hair out on this one, so Hopefully someone will have some suggestions for me. Thanks for ALL help in advance.
