With Print Shop 23.1-If I am adding text inside a text box, say font 60 and I complete the line and press "Enter" to start a new line, the font # changes back to what it was previously. Then I have to


When using text boxes I typically type the entire box in the preset font/size and then double click the text or select all, and choose my fonts ,sizes, spacing, etc. afterwards. Typically I use text boxes for smaller font items as I find the headline feature to be the most useful for larger size text. also under the text tab , after you double click your text box, you can select a paragraph style which has presets up to 143. I apologize that I didn't really answer your question, but maybe this will you get you by until you do, that is if you haven't already figured it out.

P Touch 1880 indicates MAX font size, but prints smaller sized label. If I print one word at a time, it prints in MAX size. If I print two or more words, it prints smaller font. Weird, new problem.


Sounds like you may have a maximum length set that keeps you from printing over a certain length of label and it is adjusting your font size to fit that length. You may need a manual to figure out how to reset the length.

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.

P-Touch Label Maker: How to get rid of "Text Too High! 1 Block" error message?


You may get this error after installing new tape which is small in width. If you reduce font size, so it will fit on new tape, the error message goes away and your P-Touch will print your label.

ERROR appears and won't print


What size tape are you using in the machine?  Some of the fonts won't work if you are using 1/4" tape.  It will say ERROR if you're asking it to print a larger size. This won't be a problem for you if you switch to 1/2" tape, or just use the two smallest font sizes. 
Hope that helps!

Doesn't print anything


My P-touch has the same issue. There is a U-shaped spring wire that pushes one of the rubber wheels so it presses the tape against the element that "writes" on the tape. A small piece of plastic that holds the spring in place broke off so the spring can't do it's thing. CA glue (superglue) would not work, I am trying to find a parts source now, it is easy enough to replace.

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
