Pitch is the spacing between typed letters.
Pitch should be set (either 10 or 12 ) as indicated on the printwheel. I'm pretty sure that there's no "off" setting. To Set:

For 10 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [$/4] key.
For 12 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [%/5] key.

To set margins beyond current settings: First release margins.
Backspace or spacebar to the current margin
Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [^/6] key.
[ALT] and [&/7] for left, [ALT] and [*/8] for right

hope this helps

With the advent of the Megapixel camera , our photo's that we take are getting bigger and bigger. This is all good to have a nice and big resolution picture , but the trouble comes in when you try to e-mail a 4Mb picture on a limited internet connection.

There is lots of software out there that can re-size a picture or photo , but I prefer and recommend Pixresizer because its free and really easy to use.

Download Pixresizer HERE

Once downloaded , unzip the program and install it to your computer. If you do not have software to unzip it , please download winrar HERE.

Now open the program.

You have a choice of converting multiple files or a single file at a time.I'll be demonstrating how to convert a few files at the same time. The concept is the same for converting a single file.

Click on the "work with multiple files" tab.

  1. Select the folder where the photo's which you want to resize are located .
  2. Select the folder where the resized files are saved.
  3. Move the size dragging scale to select desired size.
  4. Select the output format (Jpeg is fine)
  5. Finally Save Pictures.

And that's all. I now converted 7.8Mb of photo's to only 200Kb which is a much more appropriate size for sending in a e-mail.

Selectric II Pitch-shift lever won't change from 12 tom 10


If you haven't changed the pitch for a long time the lubricants dry up, if you have some WD40 spray it in the slot inthe margin bar where the L. & R. margin levers ride. Give it a few minites to work.

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,

Margins won't stay cleared from line to line. Character spacing is wider than what it was yesterday.


On the L. side of the keyboard are some slide switches set the line space at one position and the pitch at 12, now space to the rt. margin press the mar rel key once space to where you want the rt. margin and press the rt. mar key.

IBM Selectric Typing carriage doesn't stop moving. Stuck key?


It sounds like a possible tab knockoff problem. This could be a small spring loose or broken in the escapement portion of the machine or the final knockoff in the tab unit out of alignment. You can try setting a tab before the end of the carriage by holding the carrier in place and using your other hand to press Tab Set, but the alignment may be just far enough off to keep you from actually setting the tab. One other thing that sometimes will cause the problem is the pitch setting lever is between the two pitches. Make sure your pitch setting lever is seated in its home position.

IBM Selectric II-return goes past the margin stop


The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

Brother ml 100


when the typewriter is first switched on the typewriter will automatically set a margin 10 or 12 spaces in,depending on which pitch setting you have. To set a margin say on 20,space-bar in to 20 on the spacing scale and then press Margin Set Key. to set a margin on say, 5 first depress the Margin release key and back-space 5 spaces in and then set then margin as before. Remember that the typewriter will "forget" the settings as soon as it is switched off.
