Hi bangkok,

It can be very simple with LiveCode, but printing labels with a Zebra printer in FileMaker, which are not compatible is not. With a printer technician we spent about 3 hours to configure it, the size of the label that you put on the printer has nothing to do with the FileMaker. I already told the client that they were not compatible, he tried.
Zebra claims to be compatible with Mac. They even provide a guide for setting it up:
https://support.zebra.com/cpws/docs/dri ... ra_Mac.htm

Both LiveCode and FileMaker are compatible with macOS printing functions. That is, any printer driver compliant with OS specs should be usable by just about any software that can work with any other printer.

Zebra claims to rely on CUPS for the bulk of its needs, which has a good reputation for robustness.

You may need to contact Zebra technical support to determine why software using standard macOS printing routines are not working with the specific Zebra printer you're using.
The Spanish ñ does not understand the printed and puts in its place the n.
That sounds like a bug in either the printer driver or the printer firmware. Definitely contact the manufacturer.
I've only been with LiveCode for a couple of weeks and I do not see that I'm very focused on the management issue, or at least it appears to me. I have never seen any management program on LiveCode and I do not know its real power.
I don't understand "management" in this context. I have programs that manage web production, team workflows, data analytics, graphics production, and more. "Management" is a very broad word.

Can you tell us more specifically what you're looking for?

Hi Mikey,

It prints at the end from Windows. Anyway, I do not worry anymore, he's not a serious customer. It's good to know, in case I make the final step to LiveCode.

Regards,

Carles

Hi Richard,

The technician of the company that sold the printer, already got in touch with the technical support of Zebra. It was finished printing from Windows. The configuration of the size that had to be put in FileMaker, had nothing to do with the measure of the label. But the printed data remained inside the label.

As I mentioned to Mikey, he is not a good client and I have no relationship with him anymore.

On the subject of management I mean to be able to do a CMR, control stocks, manage rentals of properties, rental of materials, traceability of the food chain, etc. I'm not saying it can not be done, but unfortunately I do not master the LiveCode and it's hard for me to replicate something similar done with FileMaker.

A big handicap is the subject of the database, you have to make the connections, close them, update data, delete, I have it automatic with FileMaker, I know what it is to get used to.

Nor have I seen anything done with LiveCode, that I can say these objects in this layout equals that object in FileMaker.

Do you know if there are people who use it in Spain?

Thanks for your reply,

Carles
