    Does this occur when you are printing from a specific program or anytime you print?

Fonts are typically available either for free or for a fee.

Only fonts that are visible in your C:\WINDOWS\Fonts Directory will be available to print.

You can google fonts and find more if you are looking.

Also, depending on the program you are using, you can save as a .pdf to print and this will "pack " you fonts into the document. You cna also use the "prepare for commercial printing" option in MS Publisher to store the fonts in the file.

Bottom line, if the font isnt installed, you cant use it.

You may be getting this error if the document came from someone who has the font but you dont. If that's the case, tell your friend you need the fonts. Just copy them out of the E:\WINDOWS\Fonts directory to your disc.

That should do it.

Change the font in the application that you are using.

The problem may be that the printer's resident fonts does not include the font you are calling. So the printer's logic says, "Go find the best font you can." The font search gives you the wrong font.

If your printer allows you to print out the fonts, do that and make sure the font you want is in the list.

If it is not, then you will have to use a "Soft font" and make sure that your application knows to download/include soft fonts to the printer

PCL XL error


Okay,

You printer driver is telling you that it received a font call at data position 317 that called for a Windings font, but the printer cannot find the indicated font.

More than likely you have not enabled soft fonts to be included in the datastream and the printer has no choice but to search its internal fonts to find the fonts.

If it cannot, the driver reports the failure.

If you can create a print file for me, and send it to me at don.farr@msn.com, I will be able to read the datastream and possibly fix the failure for you.

Ragged / Zig-Zag Edges on Characters


This maybe the result of one of two issues:

1 - (and most likely) you are using a bit-mapped font instead of a true-type font and at a fairly large font size. Bit-map fonts are composed of dots, much like an icon, and cannot be scaled beyond a certain value or you see the jagged edges.

2 - you are using a true-type font at a fairly large size and your printer does not have a post-script driver installed on your computer, so it takes the font and converts it to its closest bitmap representation and prints it out...rendering the font in all of its jagged glory!

BAR CODE FONTS FOR LITTLE LABELS


Depends on what software you are using, but you can use any True Type Font for the human readable, and any propritry barcode font available as downlaods.
However these barcode fonts tend not to print very small, it is a matter of trial and error.

You could be set in draft mode in your printers properties, or, you could be using ECONO Mode.

Sometimes People use PCL Fonts for their printers, and other use PS Fonts. PCL is the typical font type. PS is post script, which Adobe type fonts are used.
If you are set to PS Fonts using MS Word, you might try PCL Font types instead.

20 mem overflow


The printer received more data form the computer than can fit in its available user memory. You may have tried to transfer too many macros or soft fonts, or graphics that were too complex. This problem is also caused by printing too many typefaces at 600dpi. Press Continue to print the transferred data, then simplify your print job or install additional memory. I don't know why it would just start doing it, perhaps a memory module has gone bad and there is not as much available RAM as there used to be?
