The distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a document. Well-chosen typefaces make a document easier to read.
  • Page 198: Pitch And Point Size

    Pitch and Point Size The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on whether the font is fixed space or proportional. In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify the size of fixed space fonts. It is a measure of the number of characters that will print in one horizontal inch of type.
  • Page 199: Bitmapped And Scalable Fonts

    Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts The printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts. Bitmapped fonts are stored in print memory as predefined patterns of bits that represent a typeface at a specific size, style, and resolution. The following illustration shows an example of a character from a bitmapped font.
  • Page 200: Resident Fonts

    If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan to use many different sizes of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase additional memory for your printer. Resident Fonts Your printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory. Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6 and PostScript 3.
