PT 1280 suddently printing miniscule letters. Can't reset, have turned off using Shift/clear buttons, but doesn't change after settings redone.


What size tape are you using? If you have switched from half-inch to quarter-inch tape, then chances are that the printer is working correctly as the general size of the print is determined by the size of the tape. Beyond that, you can use the Text button at the top-center of the keyboard to enter the options for customizing the print such as the font used, the size (small, medium, or large), the width of the letters, and the style (such as bold, outlined, or shaded).

How do I change the size of the print on the label


Using the software that came with it modify the font settings.
Changing the Default Font Settings in DYMO Label Software Answer 299 ' Applies To DYMO ' Published 07/20/2005 10:16 AM EDT ' Updated 08/31/2010 05:05 PM EDTHow do I change the default font settings in the DYMO Label Software (DLS)?

Font settings can be adjusted for individual label templates and for the DLS application. Please note, changing the font settings for the DLS application will only affect the creation of new label templates. It does not change the font settings of any previously created and saved label templates.

Changing the Default Font Settings for Individual Label Templates in DLS

  1. Open DLS.
  2. In DLS, click and highlight the text on the label template.
  3. The tool bar above the label template allows you to change various font and justification settings. To change font type and font size you must click on the Font Settings icon: f_f.jpg
  4. Make the necessary changes to the font settings. The Sample field indicates how the text will appear on the label. Please note, the text will automatically shrink to fit if you select a font size that is too large for the address or text object on the label to accommodate.
  5. Click OK after making the necessary changes.
  6. Save the label template. Click on the File menu in DLS and select either Save or Save As. Selecting Save will save the label template with its existing name. Selecting Save As will allow you to enter a new name and create a new label template.

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.

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.

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!

Saving/printing different font size


Try to do again a complete reset, then set all settings again to big fonts and try saving.
Ensure also that you use Dymo original labels, they have a tag at the back, non original do not have it.
Sometimes with non Dymo rolls the machine lose settings.
