When printing a media such as a label or tag, you need to know the type of sensor to use so the printer can tell when does the printer start and stop printing. Here are the steps in how to change the sensor type once you know what the media needs to use. For example, labels could have a black bar on the back which tells when one label starts and ends, it would use reflective while labels with a gap in between would use transmissive. As for tags which have an open space, it would also use reflective.

  1. In Bartender, you can do this in two ways, one is when want to create a new template to print on your media and the other is when you are about to print a template. Either is the same by clicking “Document Properties”.

 

2. In Properties, select the “Stock” tab. Then select the drop down list beside “Sensors” and click OK in the bottom and the printer should be able to detect the gap or make if the sensor is in the right position.

This way is if you want to do it individually for each document or for a special label which you do not usually use.

 

Another way is when you want to set it so that all the documents will use the same sensor type.

1. Search for “Devices and Printers” and in the window right click on the printer you are using then select “Printing preferences”.

 

2. In Printing Preferences, select the “Stock” tab. Then select the drop down list beside “Sensors” and click Apply and OK in the bottom and the printer should be able to detect the gap or make if the sensor is in the right position.
