About the format menu

The format that appears in the following procedure uses
symbols to indicate character sizes in each line of text. The
formats that appear depend on the width of the tape loaded
in the label printer and the number of lines in the block of
text where the cursor is located when you press the SIZE
key. The following shows all of the formats available for each
tape width and the number of lines of text.
• Note that with the preset formats, all character sizes have
the same vertical and horizontal measurements.
24mm and 18mm tape, 1 line of text
1 × 1
2 × 2
4 × 4
5 × 5
24mm and 18mm tape, 2 lines of text
1 × 1/1 × 1
1 × 1/2 × 2
2 × 2/1 × 1
2 × 2/2 × 2
1 × 1/3 × 3
3 × 3/1 × 1

1 × 1/1 × 1/1 × 1
1 × 1/1 × 1/2 × 2
1 × 1/2 × 2/1 × 1

12mm tape, 1 line of text

Important! You can use preset formats to specify charac-
ter sizes for lines of text only when there is no character
size specification already made inside of the text. If you press
the SIZE key while the cursor is located inside of a block
that already contains a character size indicator, the FOR-
MAT item will be dimmed on the SIZE menu, which means
it cannot be selected.
To specify character sizes for lines of text
using preset formats
1. While the cursor is located inside of the block of text where
you want to use the preset formats, press SIZE.
• See page E-16 for details about blocks.
2. Use u and i to highlight "FORMAT" and then press
3 × 3
SET.
• The FORMAT menu appears with all of the preset for-
mats that are available in accordance with the number
of text lines there are in the block where you located the
cursor, and with the width of the tape loaded in the label
printer.
3. Use u, i, t and y to move the highlighting to the
format that you want to use and then press SET to select
it.
• At this point, the label printer returns to the text input
screen.

display. The character size indicator shows the current size
setting for the character where the cursor is located.

About Auto Sizing

If you do not specify a character size, the label printer auto-
matically selects the optimum size in accordance with the
width of the tape you are using. If you are using frames
(page E-19), characters are automatically balanced with the
type of frame being used.
The following are examples of how auto sizing works.

may make it impossible to print text if there are too many
lines. Note the following relationships between tape width
