Question about Datamax I-4208 Thermal Label Printer
I print multiple label sizes from excel on Datamax I-class 4208 printers. Sometimes when I swap label sizes the label content is stretched vertical. If I keep swapping printers and label sizes in Excel it eventually seems to clear the issue. It's like the printer retains the height of the previous label size and then tries to applay that to the new label (which is not as high) stretching the content to fit.
This seems to happen with both networked and local printers.
You need to set the proper lable size on printing properties.

orientation if you want. Next, select the Page tab and under the
Scaling category pick Fit to. For instance, if you want to fit
all data columns on one lengthwise page, change orientation to
landscape and choose Fit to 1 page wide by 99 pages tall. This
setting won't stretch pages to 99 pages but will make sure that
a low value won't accidentally shrink the pages to a much
Another option under Scaling is to adjust the size to a
percentage of the normal size.
Important: when Scaling other than 100% is used, manual page
breaks are ignored.
