Part 6 Character Sizes

Your label printer provides you with three different ways to
change character sizes: direct specification of character size,
specification of character size for entire lines of text using
preset formats, and specification of superscript and sub-
script.
The operations in this part of the manual explain how to
change character sizes using each of these techniques.

Direct Specification of Character Sizes

You can specify various numeric factors to change the ver-
tical (1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and horizontal (1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,
8) size of characters from the normal (1×1) 48 dots × 48
dots (3mm × 3mm). A character size change is indicated on
the display by a character size indicator. The following table
shows the character size indicators that appear for each
character size.

Specifying Character Sizes for Lines of
Text Using Preset Formats
With this method, you input the text you want and then use
preset formats to specify the character size for each line of
text. Note that character size marks do not appear inside of
text when you specify character sizes using this method. In-
stead, the character size display mark shows the size of the
characters where the cursor is currently located.
