Re: Just a question...can the font size be changed?
Yes for one, smaller pitch such as a 12 pitch such as Prestige Elite or Coutier 12. You can also get a 15 pitch wheel if your machine has that feature. Ther is button the keyboard that lets you choose between 10 (Pica) 12 (Elite) or 15 Pitch. Good Luck

To change font and pitch, you need to buy a different printwheel. machines came with a prestige elite 12 printwheel. Prestige elite has small letters and 12 puts 12 charactors per inch. Letter gothic is larger size letters. Google search for ibm wheelwriter printwheel, also called a daisy wheel.
you have to get a new printwheel, pull the black lever in front and to the right of the printwheel, pull ou the old P/W, insert the new P/W in the same position and push the lever forward untill it latches into place
You will have to purchase a wheel with different font. Is your machine capable of both 10 and 12 pitch? If it is, there will be a lever near the platton to make this change. For more information, ask at the office supply place where you go to get your new wheel.
Mechanical typewriters are not able to use scalable font. Every letter on a typewriter is the same size as every other letter. You can get larger and smaller letters (font) ... but they will occupy exactly the same size space. The only other option, as I say, is the 10 pitch or 12 pitch (how many letters you "pitch" up on the paper per inch). If your machine has this capacity, you can use both pitches.
I hope this answers your question. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com
A typewritter is not like a computer. It is a mechanical device, that works by pressing an embossed letter in the daisy wheel through a inked tape into the paper.
The only way you can change either the font type or the font size is by buying and replacing the daisy wheel by another one with different font type/size letters.
