We have a Zebra 2844 Label Printer with 4"x3" labels in it. When we check the page settings in Windows XP, it is set to the correct size. When we go to print out of any program, it prints 4"x11". I have checked the page settings in one of the programs that we are using and it does show correctly the 4"x3" settings but prints at the incorrect 4"x11". I have followed the steps here Paper size: Printer Properties vs Page Setup and here Is there a way to programatically set the printer properties in windows? but have not been able to glean enough information to figure it out. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it!

That sounds like a coding error in the program, rather than a settings issue or bug with windows or zebra. – Joel Coehoorn Sep 10 '12 at 15:09
That's what I was thinking as well. The vender of the software is swearing that it is the printer though... I have having a hard time convincing them it is their program. – Jeff Sep 10 '12 at 15:20
Try printing a simple label out of MS Word. If Word prints as expected, you know it's not Windows, and you know it's not the printer. – Joel Coehoorn Sep 10 '12 at 15:41
Yeah it worked in Word. I thought it was the vender's program. Thanks Joel! – Jeff Sep 10 '12 at 17:29
