Currently there are a small number of EPL-2 based printers that can operate in either Line Mode or Page Mode. The current models supporting Line Mode are LP/TLP2722, LP2824, LP2844 and LP2443. If the printer is in Line Mode you can only send EPL1 commands to it - not EPL2 commands. If you want to print through a Windows driver, Create-a-Label or BAR-ONE 6.0 software, you will need to have the printer defaulted to Page Mode This is the default setting.
