Does anyone know how I can rotate details 90 degrees to print
(Zebra TLP2844), as in Vantage 6.1 could not change the layout
format I've set. Because in the printer settings only allow 180
degrees rotation. I want to print with a 2"x4" label in this
format:

|------------------------------------------|
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
| gfasdfsf sdf sd fs fs fsfsfsffasfafsfsfd |
|------------------------------------------|

But prints it as rotated 90 degress:(dots represent blank spaces)

Can anyone help?
I had a similar problem and changing the printer driver helped. The
latest Zebra Driver for this printer is the Zebra Universal Driver
5.4.6.16 located at
http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/drivers_downloads.html

You can tell if you have this version becasue the properties screen
has an about tab. This driver is filled with cool stuff compared to
some of their older ones.

Also, here are a couple ideas for the 90 degree rotation... You
could try setting the default size to 4x2 instead of 2x4. You could
also try changing the orientation in either the driver or the report
to landscape instead of portrait or vice versa.

Hope this helps!
