The printer only prints dots sent down by the computer. It has no concept of a font or letters at all. You'll have to change a setting on your email program. Or cut and paste the text you want to print into a word processor where you know how to change the font size.

How do i change the size of print on my Lexmark pro250


Do you also get the same font size result when making a copy using the Copy button from the printer operator panel?
It could be due to the print setting on the application that you're printing from. e.g. If you are using Word application, go to File > Page Layout > select Fonts and choose your preferred font size.

I have a new Dell computer, and when we got everything hooked up it prints really small. iv tried 3 diff. connects from radio shack and it still prints small. its a leximark T520 and a 2010 Dell.


Printing is a function of the software that you are using. If for instance you are using Word, you change the print size by clicking on the font size feature. Usually a small window up in the right corner on the tool bar indicates the size of the font, but there are other ways of getting to it. The number lower means smaller, for instance 12 is normal print where 25 is very very large. look around on your printing software.

I would like to increase print size occasionally to enable better readability of the printed document.


In checking for information on your printer I noticed that there were new drivers released in November for Windows 7:

Normally if wish to change the print size of a document you would change the Font Size within your word processor. The same would apply if you viewing a document on the web. For example, in Windows Explorer go to View, Select Text Size. Make your selcetion. Before printing I would choose the Print Preview selection under File to make sure it is what you want.

Trust this is helpful. :)

How do you adjust Fontsize on a Lexmark X5270 printer? In printing out emails the font size is VERY tiny I would like to have a larger font to make reading easier.


Actually, you can change the font size through the application you're using to make your emails. Try to explore the application settings before printing your emails. The Lexmark printer nor the printer software is not capable of changing the font size of your documents on your computer.

Font size too small on printer


I wish to inform you that the option to change the font size is available in the application and not the printer driver.

If you r printing from Internet explorer, then go to: File, Page setup, Change font..
you can increase the font size here and then print.

Hope this helps u buddy..

Prints very small


The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.

Zebra TLP 2844 Controlling the font size w/iSeries??


Hi Burgymon,

The font that is used under the barcode will use the last font properties described prior to the barcode in the output. You may want to suppress the human readable option and create a separate text field to display the text version of the barcode contents.

2. Right click the Lexmark printer icon and choose Properties.
3. Select the Details tab and click Spool Settings.
