Corrections after Beta version:

CL4NX Operation mode - Linerless - Backfeed mode is "Before printing" instead of "No backfeed"
CL4NX Operation mode - Linerless - "After printng" is removed
CL4NX Operation mode - Linerless - Operation mode "Linerless" has just one value on NX4 printer: "Before printing". "No backfeed" option has been removed. Print stream reflect with sending  PM5 and not PM6.

CL4NX/CL6NX Operation Mode - Partial cut - cut when printing - Backfeed mode is "Before printing" instead of After printing
CL6NX Operation mode - Partial cut - cut when printing - "Before printing" option has been removed 
CL6NX Operation mode - Partial cut - cut when printing - print stream  reflect PM9. This is solved with change of operation mode option from Partial cut into "Cutter - cut when printing). This option sends PMB.

Operation mode "Cutter - cut when printing" has just one Backfeed mode "Before printing". Because no other is possible, the combo for backfeed is disabled disabled on GUI.

Ver.: Media type (ESC+IG):
Media type combo for CG2 printers is extended with "Wristband without carrier" (SBPL manual:"Transmissive 2 - for wrist bands").

CW printer does not support print mode option (no ribbon core).

Media form (ESC+YE):
Lesprit printer models support now Media form option.
Media form (roll/fanfold)  is not supported on HA, HR printers.
Media form (roll/fanfold)  is now supported on Lesprit printers.

Darkness range is controlled with printer by default, like it is implemented on the International printer models.
CG4xx and M-10e have darkness range A,B
CZ4xx have darkness range A,B,C,D,E,F

MB printers does not support Overlay function (also GUI option is removed for enable Overlay)
Japanese BF,HA, Lesprit printers does not support Overlay function (also GUI option is removed for enable Overlay).


Ver.: Added Operation mode for:BF400R, M-48 Pro and ST300R printers. Also Pitch offset is added like it is used on other Japanese printer models.

Operation mode "Cutter-cut when prinitng" is also added for Store settings dialog (ESC+PG command) on SG600R printers.
When for Operating mode "Dispenser" is selected there are just two Backfeed mode options (No backfeed option has been removed).
There is no Backfeed mode option when "Cutter - cut when printing" is selected for Operation mode.
Operation mode combo has the same width as Backfeed mode to fit the length of all values.
Linerless operation mode sends two PO commands now. PO0 + PO3.
