It is possible to download a Labelpoint Macro to the printer, but power cycling the printer causes the Macro to be deleted.
Printers Hardware: MP Series
When using Macros in Label Point printing language it will be required to ensure that the Macro is stored in the correct location on the printer, without doing this the default location will be used, which is module D which is a volatile location,
To change the default location, connect to the printer, using any available communication method and send the following command: !!system.parameter.defaultstoragepath!1[CR] In this case module G has been selected, X and Y are also available, see table below:
0 = "/rdsk/D/", RAM memory
1 = "/user/G/", ROM memory
2= "/user/X/", ROM memory
3= "/user/Y/", ROM memory
To check which path has been selected the following command can be sent: !!system.parameter.defaultstoragepath?[CR] where the response from the printer will appear as !.....
Once the Macro is downloaded to the G location and saved permanently it is recommend to switch the default location back to D.
Note: Starting with Firmware APP_MPCompact_15.04_0164_S8556 default storage location for Labelpoint Macros is G. This change was done to have the same functionality like on the MP Compact MKII.
