1. Click on Start, go to the Control Panel, and select Printer (for XP Printers and Faxes).


2. Right click on the TD4000/4100N printer and select Printing Preferences.

4. In the Paper Size Setup dialog box, click New.


5.    In the New dialog box under Paper Size Name enter a name for the new size.  For example 2-3/7 x 4 for a die cut label roll size or just 3 for a three inch continuous length tape roll.


6.    Below the new size name there is a box next to Continuous length tape.  If you are entering a new size for a continuous length tape roll, click on it so that a check mark appears in the box.


7.    Enter the value for Width of the label.  For example, enter 2.43 for 2-3/7.

10.  Enter the value for Label Spacing.  This is the gap between the die cut labels on the roll.  For continuous tape the box will be gray out.
