Printing draft Panasonic KX-P1150

I'm using Win XP and don't have any problems with printing except that it only prints NLQ fonts as indicated on the printer panel. I need to print invoices fast in draft micro or pica - the printer boasts high speed in draft - as much as 240 cps HOW DOES ONE DO THIS - HOW DO YOU SET THE DRAFT FONTS. The setup disk that comes with the printer does not seem to have the draft fonts either. SURELY THERE MUST BE A WAY TO SETUP DRAFT (The test print feature prints in draft?)Can anybody please help!
