I see Brother offer a Mac OS X 'driver' for this model. No idea what features/functions it offers compared with the Windows software though.

"Swap roles" in verdict.

Are you moonlighting with the RSC ?

Proofreading, such as it is, is to declaim in a loud plummy voice, while the tea lady checks the text, good system.

Just got this printer and it does what they say, seemingly very well. However, for the Mac there are no plug-ins for Microsoft Office or iWork, so printing labels directly from these applications is not possible. Also, if you want to print directly from Address Book you can find the printer but you can not change the layout to landscape, so effectively you can not print from Address Book, which is a disappointment. You can link the P-Touch software with Address Book but the process to include fields in the print layout is cumbersome and unpractical and therefore not a realistic option.

Label printing on a commercial scale has changed dramatically over the last few years.. Carrying printed label stocks comes at a cost. For some businesses, the cost of printing large volumes of labels to be used over a period of time is still a very attractive option...Great post..
