MAKE MY HP OFFICEJET 5610 PRINTER PRINT LARGER


The only way a printer should print larger is that you should WRITE your text with larger fonts.
You should select font size on your word processing application, call it nopepad, wordpad, winword or any other similar application.
If you tell us the application and the version you are using for word processing, might help you select a larger fornt

Make font larger on HP1510 printer


What font are you referring to? Have you prepared a document in a word processing program, or added text to an image file, and are disappointed because you want to see the text printed larger? If so, your best solution is to edit the document or image and change to a larger text size. For example, most text documents will normally default to either a size 10 or 11 text which is readable but small. Changing to size 12 or 14 will make the text look larger onscreen, and the text will also print larger. The font name and font size should be displayed on one of your processing program's toolbars, and is easily changed to a different font name or size. If you are simply copying an already printed document and want the text to appear larger, you should refer to your printer's User Guide. If you don't have the User Guide, you can download a free copy at this link:

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.

How do you change font size of email printout?


Internet Browser Instructions

  • If you open your email account using a browser, there is a very simple way to increase the font. Font size options are located either under "Tools" ("Options" or "Preferences" then "Content") or "View" (text size) on your browser's main menu. Change the font to a larger size, which may be set by number or by selecting "Larger" or "Largest" font from the list of options. You may have to click "Advanced" or the similar option in the "Fonts" section of some browsers to adjust the font properly.

    Next, click "File" then "Print Preview" on your browser's main menu. This will show you how the email will look when printed. Click "Page Setup" and deselect the "Shrink to Fit Page" option. This will allow you to print the email at the new, larger font size. Be sure to return your browser's font size to normal when you are finished printing the email, or else all of your pages will display with a larger font.

Other Email Software
  • If you use a non-browser email software program to view your emails, insert your email contents into Microsoft Word (or a similar word processing program) to print it in large letters. Select the entire message from your email software then go to Word to paste the contents into a blank document. You can then select the text of the email and increase the size of the font. When you're done, print the file as you would normally. You can also perform this action with an email that you open inside of a browser.

I have a 105SL connected directly to a pc using Bar Tender. It takes for ever to print and when it does the printed label is 1/4 larger than what I specified. keep it simple, has I am not an IT expert.....


Ok...two items to check:
1. slow print can be caused by using True-Type fonts like Arial, Times New Roman, etc...these fonts do not reside in the firmware of the printer so Bartender has to download the fonts to the printer's memory hence the long print time. Change any text fonts to Zebra's internal fonts which you should be able see as a choice from Bartender.

2. If the print is larger than you expect, then you are using a printer driver that is not correct for the dpi (dots per inch) of the printer than have. If your printer is a 203dpi printer but you use a 300dpi printer driver, then your print will be larger that you expect. Bartender will format the fields for 300dpi but because size is larger on a 203dpi, the print will be larger. The Z105SL comes in both sizes, 203 or 300. Just verify your printer to the driver being used.

Hope that helps !

Font size problem when printing documents


Font sizes are a program thing nothing to do with the printer
 Examine your E-mail client set up in the read section[Different E-mail programs different setting ] probably under a heading
Tools/Options and look at how the font sizes are organized.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.
