General settings for ZPL Layouts
In your Dynamics environment, you can easily create and adjust labels. However, you do need to know what fields to fill in and what functions these fields have. In the video below, we go through the different fields one by one. In this way, you exactly know what fields you need for your specific label. Starting with the general settings.
Lines for ZPL Layouts
After having successfully filled in the general setups, it is time to proceed to the lines. On the ZPL label you can add different lines. All with their own type and their own value. In the video below, we introduce the fields on the ZPL Layout Lines.
