This chapter only applies when using the keyboard in terminal mode. When using the keyboard in intelligent mode, your script controls the prompts you see and each script is different.

You can select Batch Options to change which prompts appear during Batch Entry mode and set default values for those prompts. Customizing which prompts appear during batch entry can reduce the time it takes to enter data for a format.

If a knife is not installed on the printer, you can prevent those prompts from appearing during batch entry mode. If you set a new default value for an option, that value is used even if the prompt is not displayed. If you do not change a default value for an option, the system default is used if the prompt is not displayed.

Keep in mind the following definitions:

Number of Parts

Number of times data prints across the tag’s

 

width. Using one to print data once on the

 

tag. Using three to print data three times

 

across the tag.

Cut Multiple

Number of tags printed between cuts as a

 

set. A cut multiple of one cuts after each tag.

 

To cut after each batch, set the cut multiple

 

equal to the print quantity.

 

If the cut multiple is three and the print

 

quantity is 15, five sets of three tags are

 

printed and cut (15 tags). If the cut multiple

 

is three and the print quantity is 16, five sets

 

of three tags and one set of one tag are

 

printed and cut (16 tags).

The cut multiple does NOT affect the printed quantity.
