SOURCE: can't change the font style & size on my Brother PT-65 Label make

In case you've forgotten how to change the text size, hold down 'Code' and '& Size' key to display the current setting. While still holding the Code button, push and release the '&' key to change the size.

To reset, I would try removing the batteries for a few minutes before reinstalling them.

Just two guesses.

How do I change the font size on a Dymo Letra Tag?


For the Dymo LetraTag Plus LT-100T, Personal Label Maker (SKU: 1733013)

Before trying to change the FONT you must make sure that the labelmaker is configured to print only 1 line of text. You cannot sellect to print larger fonts when label maker is configured for multi-lines. In order to make sure you are printing only 1 line do the following
1)While pressing down on the Shift key (may be show by an up arrow on some machines), press the Del/Clear key. This will clear all text and reset the label maker to print on 1 line.
You must also make sure that there are no other print options enabled, such as: italic, bold, vertical, underline, mirrored-print, outline, etc; these will all prevent you from changing the font. Also ensure that the take will accomodate the font.

My response will depond on the exact model you have...
To set the font size
1) Press the FORMAT key.
2) Use the up or down arrows keys to select the Size and press OK
3) Use the up or down arrow keys to selected the desired font size then press OK

To set the font
1)Press FORMAT
2)Use the up or down arrow key to select the font style and press OK.
If this does not work, please include the exact model/name.

I have a LabelMaker 450D and I do not know how to make the font a smaller size. I want to print a label that has a name in a larger size and a line underneath with the job title that is in a smaller size...


Hello. Here is a free downloadable manual for your labelmaker. http://www.dymo.com/media/UserGuides/LM450D_US_931764.pdf

Turn to pages 9-12 to learn how to change fonts and how to do multiple fonts and underlining all at once.

The label maker remembers the last feature
selection made so that each time you enter one of the
feature menus described in this section, you are
positioned at the last item selected from that menu. J.

CHR SIZE AUTO?


Press the Return button and the machine will automatically print the size the tape will allow! :) Title:
What does the error message "CHR SIZE AUTO?" mean? Description:This message appears when the selected character size is too large for the width of the tape cassette installed.

You have the following options:

  • Press the "Print" or "Return" key to allow the P-touch machine to automatically select the maximum character size that fits the tape width.

  • Press the "BS" key to clear the message, and then install a wider tape cassette.

  • Press the "BS" key to clear the message, and then select a smaller character size by following these steps:

    1. While holding the "Code" key, press the "Size" key. The display will show the current character size.

    2. Keep the "Code" key held, and press the "Size" key until the desired size is displayed.
      If you select "AUTO", the P-touch machine will automatically adjust the character size to the largest possible size.

    3. Release the "Code" to apply the setting.


If you have the correct size tape installed and still get the error message, please try removing the cassette from the machine and reinstalling it. Also, check that the tape cassette is seated firmly in the compartment.


Note
    The following table shows the maximum character size that can be used with each tape width.

    Tape Width Maximum Character Size 1/4" (6 mm) 12 points 3/8" (9 mm) 18 points 1/2" (12 mm) 24 points 3/4" (18 mm) 42 points

Press "Line Out" to remove return character, It thinks you want to print on more than one line so is making font smaller to fit. Good luck.
