I'm running Windows10 on Dell XPS laptop.
I've just bought a label printer from Dymo - the Labelwriter 450. It works great except...
If a label orientation is a conventional portrait layout then all is fine, Word 2013 behaves fine. What I mean by "conventional" is that the width of the label aligns to the printing width of the printer and the length of the label as it emerges is longer than the width. The same as any ordinary desktop printer.
However, some label stock, the length of the label is shorter than the width. Word 2013 determines this is a landscape page. Which is fine to type up the label details, but the printer then prints conventionally landscape too - which means the print is 90 degrees wrong in orientation.
I tried setting a "Custom" paper size in Word, with the width wider than length and setting it as portrait, but Word then decides it's a portrait and presents on screen a conventional portrait layout, so that's not a solution.
I've had three rounds with the Dymo helpdesk and whilst they are trying to resolve the issue, It's not a conversation that's leading to a solution.
(Dymo do provide add-ins for their printer, they work, but are clunky and I just want to treat the printer as a normal printer and get rid of the add-ins, to the office apps clean)
Any ideas welcome -
