Saving formats in flash memory instead of ram by ZPL II

Saving formats in flash memory instead of ram by ZPL II

Saving formats in flash memory instead of ram by ZPL II


I have done some formats for some Zebra printer - I just got a new Zebra Xi4 and when I save formats on this printer, it by defaults saves it in the RAM instead of the internal FLASH memory. Resulting in lose of formats when the printer is turned off.

Does any of you know how to turn Zebra Xi4 to save formats in Flash memory instead of Ram??

In hope of help


RE: Saving formats in flash memory instead of ram by ZPL II

When saving the format with the ^DF command, you just have to state E:format_name.zpl instead of R:format_name.zpl

Found it out myself by reading the Volume II of the ZPL II language - link to volume II: http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/documentlibrary/manuals/en/zpl_ii_programming1.DownloadFile.File.tmp/45542L-002%20RA%20ZPL%20II%20vol2.pdf?dvar1=Manual&;dvar2=ZPL%20II%20Programming%20Guide,%20Volume%20Two%20(for%20printers%20with%20firmware%20x.10+)%20Rev.%20A%20(en)&;dvar3=R110XiIIIPlus
