    You need to select a 4 x 6 duplicate strip layout and then configure your
    printer to cut. See

    Mike,

    If your printer is set up to only do 2X6 strip prints
    I suspect it is a DNP printer... and that setting should be
    used with Caution: you will be using the same amount of
    media for a 2X6 single strip as you would for a full 4X6 double strip
    meaning that you will be WASTING media and when your printer
    states you our out of media, you will have 1/2 roll of paper
    that is going to be tossed out with the used media.

    You can not purchase Media alone and both
    the Paper and Media should be changed
    when one or the other runs out.

    DNP doesn't tell you this because they will be
    the one making more $$$ because you want to do
    single strip prints.... you are better off making
    the double strips and giving an extra strip to the guest or client...

    BUT if you insist and still want to do single strips,
    YES you can create a single strip 2X6 in the layout editor
    see attached...

    let me know if you need any help of have any questions...

    Hi Joe,

    I guess I didn’t explain myself well. I want 2 of 2 x 6 strips per session. The 4 x 6 is cut in half giving 2 prints that are 2 x 6.
    I have done it before but can’t seem to get it on this laptop.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Yes, all you need to do is create a full 4X6 layout
    with 2 sides - left strip one - right strip two both the same.
    and have your printer paper setting for (2) 2x6 paper.

    If you are using a DNP printer here is how it is et up

    Are you sure you have the right printer selected? Some printer drivers will
    create new instances of a printer if you connect it to a different USB port,

    NOTE: It is HIGHLY suggested that you MAKE the USB port you plug your printer in and ALWAYS use that USB port for the printer. Plugging a printer into a different port will cause your computer to create a NEW printer [adding a (2) to the printer name] and your SB settings will still be on the original printer.
