Printer Fonts

The printer driver can handle two font sets, the device font and GDI font. The device font is a hardware font built into the printer. The GDI fonts are System (without brackets) or other software fonts for Windows.

When you select a font set for graphic printing from the Printer Control window, use the GDI fonts for the following reasons:
  • In bitmap mode, a GDI font can be used for printing. However, the device font cannot be used, because an image cannot be drawn on a memory bit map when using the device font.
  • In bitmap mode, the device font cannot be used for printing when OR and exclusive OR attributes are mixed.
