I am using variable text to read from a list of names and data from a csv file. I am printing out 2-5 items with different names. So my first job is using row 0 and row 1 information to print the first two items. So I want to through the list of names manually just creating my job, and then sending that print job to the printer. I don’t need to use the auto advance and just want to move the number manually without next/prev buttons.
Right now, I have printed the first two, worked great! And I now want to now print the the next 3 rows from the csv file.
I have auto advance off. I have moved Current =2, start = 2, end = 73, advance=2.
I have also selected the first three items on the my work screen.(I can hold 5 items on my bed and I have 5 items in my “template image”). So if I “press” test on the variable text it updates the window with the correct names. However, if I do a print preview, the preview reverts back to starting at the first item in the list.
Sometimes if I hit next-previous it advances correctly on the test image, but not the preview. Sometimes the test image does not match the rows I am on.
Other thing I found. If I do press “test” button and it shows correct, and then I switch off the variable text tab, to the move tab, and then back. The “test” button also reverts back to the first row now.
I am running 9.0.7
To keep going I am just going to remove the first two items from the csv file and keep going so I am not blocked.
