    Program complains at ^FX. After deleting all ^FX, program displays "Empty string".

    v0.2.7 Looks good but supports a pretty limited subset of ZPL (it is in alpha). Chokes on these (at least)... EAN-13 & I2of5 barcodes (^BE and ^B2) Field Block (^FB) Comments (^FX).

    For doing a rough cut layout on how you want your label to look, this program works pretty well. What I find is that it often doesn't display larger fonts or anything if you adjust the height too large for the existing default font. I've had luck with this placing objects on the label and positioning them, but you have to print to the actual printer to do your final adjustments. I say keep updating this software, it works for what I use it for and saves label stock for the "fine tuning" of the label. Thanks Mark G.

    Doesn't work at all. Every single valid and printable ZPL code I've thrown at it, it does nothing but complain about a letter after a letter. X after F is perfectly valid.

    Great concept, user interface has a great design. But I need ZPLViewer to learn ZPL and design a label. It failed for me, since every example I tried from Zebra's manual failed, and the error message was not descriptive. I'm pretty sure the issue was ZPL commands I want to use have not been implemented in ZPLViewer. There was a related message on the help form - The developer said that he didn't have access to generate the barcode correctly. My answer to him would be - I don't need an accurate barcode rendering, I need my ZPL syntax verified, and an approximate rectangle would be great for label design layout. Final tweaks always have to be done on the actual printer anyways.
