Choose from the following label formats – either A4 (4 labels per page) or A6 labels (1 label per page). All other settings are optional and can be modified as necessary.
NOTE: If your labels are printed on A4 papers:
A4 paper print start position: by default, labels are printed in the order of 1 to 4. You can change the starting position here
Remember last A4 paper print position: this option is good if you want to re-use label paper. Ex: If your last label was printed on position 3, then the next one will be printed on position 4.
