I installed the good old 12 O'clock high from TalonSoft on my new Vista based pc. It is functioning but all the fonts and letter sizes are wrong. It's a bit annoying since the game is more or less worksheet based and the letters in the collumns now interfere with each other. I have tried to start the game in several different screen resolutions but it makes no difference. Suggestions anyone?

To change font and pitch, you need to buy a different printwheel. machines came with a prestige elite 12 printwheel. Prestige elite has small letters and 12 puts 12 charactors per inch. Letter gothic is larger size letters. Google search for ibm wheelwriter printwheel, also called a daisy wheel.
BX fonts at this time are compatible with Embrilliance keyboard lettering software. It is a file that is created by mapping alphabet design fonts in Embrilliance AlphaTricks. After the alphabet design font letters are mapped, the BX file is made and can be then installed in Embrilliance Essentials to choose from when using the keyboard lettering function.
Some vendors who offer alphabet design fonts (each letter/digit is a design at a specific size) will also offer the BX file for that alphabet design font so users of Embrilliance lettering software can also use it as a keyboard lettering font. More information about BX fonts can be found at the Embrilliance web site: Embrilliance embroidery software for Mac and PC
Note, to install a new font in a machine, you must contact and purchase from the machine manufacturer.
You will need to find the font & font size options on the AOL email system. The font will be what the letters look like and font size will be how large the letters are. Standard font and font size is Times New Roman 12 (this message is in that font and size). You can increase the font size from anywhere like 14 to 72 or so. Try 18 or 20.
You will have to purchase a wheel with different font. Is your machine capable of both 10 and 12 pitch? If it is, there will be a lever near the platton to make this change. For more information, ask at the office supply place where you go to get your new wheel.
Mechanical typewriters are not able to use scalable font. Every letter on a typewriter is the same size as every other letter. You can get larger and smaller letters (font) ... but they will occupy exactly the same size space. The only other option, as I say, is the 10 pitch or 12 pitch (how many letters you "pitch" up on the paper per inch). If your machine has this capacity, you can use both pitches.
I hope this answers your question. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
this is a very general question, since each program may have a slightly different varition of how to set the font size. fortunately, most third party vendors set the font in their programs, the same way microsoft does in theirs. for everything prior to Vista with word 2007, you would click on file and then select printer settings. this sets the base font and other default printing features. also, microsoft uses styles in some of its office products, like word for instance. styles are likea template whch follows the same pattern for font; type face, and other enhancements like bold and italics. if you get stuck and need more help, you can always click on help for the application you are using and type "set font" as a search string to find how to set font size for the program you are using. basically printers do what the program tells them to do and by that i mean print letters and words in the style and font size you previosly have set. if the letters are small, it is because the program is set to print small. you need to set the font for every application you use. if you want help with a specific application, please let me know what that is and i will be able to give you a more specific answer.
