• Shift indicator
This indicator appears when you press the SHIFT key. While this indicator is on
the display, the keyboard is shifted, so the letter keys input upper-case alpha
characters. The number keys input the punctuation symbols marked in the upper
right corners of the keys.
If both the caps mode indicator and the shift indicator are shown on the display,
the keyboard is shifted to lower-case input.
The keyboard automatically unshifts (and the shift indicator disappears) as soon
as you input a character.
• Code indicator
This indicator appears when you press the CODE key. While this indicator is on
the display, number keys 1 through 0 input the accents marked above them and
the U, O, P, A, S, J, K, L, Z, C and N keys input the special characters marked
in their lower right corners.
The keyboard automatically returns to normal (and the code indicator disappears)
as soon as you input an accent.
• Caps indicator
This indicator appears when the Label Printer is in the caps (upper-case) mode.
All letters you input in the caps mode are upper-case. When the caps mode
indicator is not shown on the display, all letters are input as lower-case.
Note that the Label Printer stays in the caps mode until you press the CAPS
key again.
If both the caps mode indicator and the shift indicator are shown on the display,
the keyboard is shifted to lower-case input.
• Style indicators
These indicators point to the character style that is currently in use. You can
select between normal, bold, and outline.
• Effect indicators
These indicators point to the character effect that is currently in use. You can
select between shading, underline, and box.
• Mirror image printing indicator
This indicator appears when the Label Printer is set up for mirror image printing.
Normal (non mirror image) printing is performed when this indicator is not shown.
• Tape indicator
Indicates the currently selected tape width.
• Cursor
The cursor shows the next input position. Any character you input appears at
the point where the cursor is located.
• Character position marks
These marks show where characters will appear as you input them. This part of
the display is always blank when you turn power on.
