    Typically the font changes from the document. I suppose your printer could be trying to reduce the size of the page. Please let me know what you are printing, what type of file and from what program.

The printer should be set to Letter, no numbers involved. Try checking "print setup" or "printer properties" to adjust the paper size.

Change font size in e mail


The printer prints whatever it's told to by the computer. Your printer really doesn't control the fonts.

When you are printing stuff from the internet (web pages, email, etc.) the reason for the small print is that it is related to the size of the monitor and it's viewing setup (the higher the screen resolution, the smaller the print will be when printing it out even though it looks good on the monitor).

One way you can make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet Explorer), click on "View," then "Text Size" then select a size like "Larger" or "Largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to.)

Another method is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "File" then "Print Preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "Shrink To Fit" in it. Click the arrow for a drop down list and choose something probably above 90% or more (maybe 100 or 125%) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out.

The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like Word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Printer printing text very small


1. On the computer:
- go on Print Preview, if document looks normal go to step 2. If it's small in Preview, read on.
- make sure you are writing in a font of at least size 10
- make sure you don't have ticked "Shrink to fit", but adjust to 100%.
- size of the paper is printing preferences is set up to A4 or Letter, depending on your region
- there is a known issue with Outlook printing in small font, you need a hotfix for that

2. On the printer:
- You have to go into the menu of the printer and see if there is an option for the font, if there is increase the size of it
- In the menu, make sure the paper size is correct
- If none of these worked, you may want to reinstall the drivers of the printer
- If that does not work, you may have to put a new firmware on the printer. You can download drivers and firmware from manufacturer's website

Font height is big in printed barcode. how can I adjust the size of the font?


check if the setting FORMAT CONVERT is with some numbers, please change for NONE.
This seting change the resolution from Printhead 200dpi or 300dpi or 150 dpi or none, none mins, if you have 200dpi printhead, print 200dpi resolution(small fonts). if have 300 dpi, print with 300 dpi resolution, if have 300 dpi(very small fonts) printhead, can print 150dpi(big fonts) if change this setting.
if ok, check the driver or your software.

When I print out articles or emails the font is very small(tough to read) I can increase the font on my computer, but I want to print the bigger font size . I have an HP Photosmart4700


You can only change the font in the software that you are making your documents with or with your email try changing the font type and size. This is the only way to adjust the size of your font.

Can't adjust font size on my printer all in one


The font size is set in your printing/ viewing software and not the printer. If it's Adobe you open the document and make changes before printing. If it's an internet document you need to resize in the internet tools section.

My printer is printing to small


Print size generally depends on the font size of the item being printed. Adjust the font size in the word processor or browser (and look at print preview) to get the size you want.
