Part 5 Character Attributes and
Text Effects
The operations in this part of the manual explain how to
change fonts and character styles. These characteristics are
called "character attributes". It also tells you how to assign
such text effects as underlining, shading, and box printing to
text.
Important!
• Character attributes you specify affect printed text only.
The characters on the display do not change.
• Remember that character attributes are assigned to spe-
cific characters. Whenever you replace a character with
another one, the new character also picks up the attributes
of the original character.
• Text effects are applied to both displayed text and printed
text.

Fonts

This label printer gives you a choice of 10 different fonts.
See page E-25 for examples of each type of font.
The following sections describe how to change the default
font setting (the font that is automatically used whenever
you input text), how to change the font for displayed text,
and how you can find out what the font setting is for text on
the display.
Important!
• Note that you cannot make font changes for illustrations.
• Note that non-English characters (Ç, ß, Á, etc.) can be
used with the sans-serif, sans-serif italic, roman, roman
italic and bold script fonts only.
