Printer printing text very small

1. On the computer:
- go on Print Preview, if document looks normal go to step 2. If it's small in Preview, read on.
- make sure you are writing in a font of at least size 10
- make sure you don't have ticked "Shrink to fit", but adjust to 100%.
- size of the paper is printing preferences is set up to A4 or Letter, depending on your region
- there is a known issue with Outlook printing in small font, you need a hotfix for that

2. On the printer:
- You have to go into the menu of the printer and see if there is an option for the font, if there is increase the size of it
- In the menu, make sure the paper size is correct
- If none of these worked, you may want to reinstall the drivers of the printer
- If that does not work, you may have to put a new firmware on the printer. You can download drivers and firmware from manufacturer's website

How do you change the print size on printer?

You probably don't. Instead, you change the font-name and font-style and font-size on you computer (using Notepad, or Wordpad, or Microsoft Word), and then print in the "what you see is what you get" appearance.

When I select a new flyer, news letter, blank page or anyhing that is supposed to be a 8x11 size, the program brings it up as a 4x6 size. I can't seem to change the margins anywhere. My posters that were...


to make your information bold, fit your page or readable, simply press and hold Ctrl, then press + to increase the size of the text and press and hold Ctrl then - to reduce the font.

That is ctrl and + (plus) in increase font. Then Ctrl and - (minus) to reduce font.

Or go to the toolbar of your page, click view, and scroll to full page or zoom. You could simply press "F11" for the full page.

I hope this would help to solve your problem.

Take care.

I want to know how to increase the size of my fonts on my printer . where the computers fonts are large enough when I print out aany thing it is small I have a lexmart x 5070

The font size is controlled by the application, whether it be MS Word, Excel, or whatever.
If it is Microsoft Word, then:
1. Open a document
2. Select [Select All] from the [Edit] menu option
3. All text is now highlighted.
4. [Format] [Font]
5. Select the font Size, etc.
6. Print it out.
You may not want to "save" this document.
Do the same for other documents, etc.

Can't enlarge font. The print is so small from a printing, that you can barely read it.

If the font size from the printer is smaller than on your screen then you need to adjust the font in the print options/advanced tab. The font rint out is defaulted to either 8 or 10. Go to Print Preview...Print options and go to the advanced tab and set print font size to Scale for A4 paper.

It sounds like you are printing to postcard size paper.

Prints very small

The font size is going to be controlled by the program you are using. For normal word processing you would use a 10 or 12 point font.

If you are referring to printing from a browser like Internet Explorer, you can change the font from the Internet Explorer menu VIEW > TEXT SIZE > MEDIUM (normal).

Note: Internet Explorer font settings effect Outlook Express too.

Adjust fonts

The printer should be set to Letter, no numbers involved. Try checking "print setup" or "printer properties" to adjust the paper size.

When I printed the photos none of them was even close to film-based photos

Try using a good program like Photoshop and when you adjust for printing...make sure you DO NOT subsample the image so it can fit on a 4x6 photo paper page. What I mean by that, is in fact reduce the image to fit on such a small page but do not kill the resolution.... In Photoshop, you would open up Image Size under the Image menu and turn uncheck resample you adjust for paper will notice that your resolution stays intact on the top of the window. I assume that is your problem since the 2500 is highres and should give you fantastic results in a 4x6 format.....
