  • Patent number: 10929075
    Abstract: A print control device includes a controller. The controller edits an image constituted by one or more objects including one or more upper objects, acquires an image area length, an image area width, a lower tape length, and a lower tape width, designates one upper object from among the one or more upper objects, and acquires an object area length, an object area width, and an upper tape width. In a case where a precondition is met for the designated upper object, the controller sets an orientation to a parallel orientation when a first condition or a third condition is met, and sets the orientation to an orthogonal orientation when a second condition or a fourth condition is met. The controller issues an error notification when the precondition is met but all of the first condition, the second condition, the third condition, and the fourth condition are not met.
