Text Size of Copies

Not sure if this is a computer problem or a printer problem! When I highlight text and go to print the copies come out in much smaller text size than the originals. Everything used to be fine up to a couple of months ago. Is there a setting I can alter somewhere?

How do I get my printer to print in larger text

You need to change the size of the text on your computer in order for it to print in larger text. You didn't say what you are using to print text so it's kind of hard to tell you exactly what to do. If you are using Microsoft Word or almost any word processor, you will need to change your font size to something bigger. If you are changing something that you've already typed, you can highlight or select what you have typed and change it's font size. Hopefully this is enough to help you. If you need further help, please let us know what software you are using to create your documents. Good luck!

My printer keeps repeating old subjects, and the print is very small... new inkjets are in.. Nothing else to add... I can't get it to print from my computer... the copies are ok.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "repeating old subjects", but that sounds like a printer queue issue. Try the following, and test printing after each step.
  1. Reset the printer. (instructions here)
  2. Print a self-test report. (here)
  3. Clear the print queue (see here)
As far as the size of the print, you will need to adjust this setting in the application you are printing from...In other words, you have to change the size of the text in the original document.
If you're printing from an IE browser, check the File>page setup options and make sure your haven't checked shrink-to-fit. Otherwise, use the File>Print Preview command to monitor the size of text in the printed material. In the browser, zoom adjustment affects the printed output.
On the other hand in Word, etc, you'll need to Format the font size in the document to change the printed text to a larger size.
(The zoom level adjustment only affects your view of the document at hand).

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Printed font size too small

Most web browsers have an option to change the text size on the page you are viewing. In IE8 it is accessible through the Page menu, Text Size. It defaults to Medium, and there are 2 smaller sizes and 2 larger sizes available.

Print size has changed to very small off internet

Assuming that normal printing is fine, This is due to the size of the print in the email. To output larger print you'll have to copy the email into a document, change the size and then print the document.

I am not getting 100 draft copies per cartridge.

Purchase the 74XL cartridge for 3x the prints. You may want to consider a different printer or laser printer for more cost effective prints and reliability as your printer will most likely wear out before you want with that quantity of printing.

My Brother MFC-465CN is printing text with alignment off and double text.

My Brother printer MFC-465cn is doing the same thing. I have workaround / worked-around it by disabling bi-directional printing. Then print is clear. It's as if the head is shifting an irregular amount on the opposite direction, like the head is loose.

Same for copies. If I use the PC interface to make copies, I can set the copy printing to be mono-directional, then copies are clear.
