Printing question

Post by NZ4DX » 22 Mar 2018, 20:10

Hi everyone,
I have looked in the manual but couldnt find anything on this. When I print my label it prints out in local time such as 5:00pm and not in UTC. How do i get it to print in UTC? thanks for the help

Hi Fred,

have you checked that your config has the real timezone ?

Fred,

Log4OM derives the time display for printing from your Windows OS. Just go to that particular setup and change as you see fit.

I just did the same with my laptop that I use for radio efforts.

I'm sure your PC local time is set OK and would be an automatic offset from GMT. The change from a 12 hour to 24 hour display is quite helpful.

I also use a routine to keep my computer clock synced to a standard mostly for when I work some digital.

It is definitely your Windows time setting that is wrong!

Right click on the time displayed at the bottom right hand corner of your windows desktop and select 'Adjust Date/Time'

At the bottom of the resulting window select 'Change date and time formats'

Set it up according to your local zone as below
