Re: labeler #1950

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.

It keeps asking me "CHR SIZE AUTO?" and it won't let me change the font size.

Unsupported font types in your data - probably installing a Print Preprocessor ( Software) will help or try reinstalling the correct
Printer driver may help

Define "It".

What emulation are you using, PCL - PCL-XL - PostScript?

Can you please put the entire fontcall command into this item so that I can see the command structure?

Font size


You can download the manual for the Labelpoint 200 here:

It describes how to change font sizes and all the other printer functions.

(but briefly: press the 'size' button, use the cursor keys to select the size and press enter. There are only 2 sizes (small and normal) but these can be combined with 3 widths)

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.

I just wasted 20 minutes to get the font size changed. Press Code and then the & you keep pushing the & and it will toggle through the numbers 1-5 (5 being largest)

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.

    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
