Make font larger on HP1510 printer


What font are you referring to? Have you prepared a document in a word processing program, or added text to an image file, and are disappointed because you want to see the text printed larger? If so, your best solution is to edit the document or image and change to a larger text size. For example, most text documents will normally default to either a size 10 or 11 text which is readable but small. Changing to size 12 or 14 will make the text look larger onscreen, and the text will also print larger. The font name and font size should be displayed on one of your processing program's toolbars, and is easily changed to a different font name or size. If you are simply copying an already printed document and want the text to appear larger, you should refer to your printer's User Guide. If you don't have the User Guide, you can download a free copy at this link:

I have a photosmart 4650...when I print from a web page, the print is so small I cant read it. How do I change the font size?


Best Answer -
That entirely depends on what you are printing. A printerwill only produce what it is given.

If you are printing your own document then you change the font in the documentbefore printing or select the font before you start.

However I suspect the reason you are asking this is because you are printing apdf document from the internet. In which case the font is fixed.

If so, then you will have to copy and paste the document in to a word processorlike Word, highlight it all and the increase the font. You will then have toreformat the whole document as the increased font will throw the orginalformatting all out of line.

When you have straightened it all up then print it off.
ALTERNATIVELY, if you are printing on ordinary web page then you need to follow the below instruction
Instructions
1. 1 Go to theweb page that you want to print and right-click it. Click "PrintPreview." If you want to print part of the page, highlight the contentthat you want to print and right-click the selection. Click "PrintPreview." 2. 2 Click the "Page Setup" icon located onthe top of the Print Preview window to launch the Page Setup dialog box. Click"Change Font." 3. 3 Select the font you want to use in the"Size" window. If you want to change the font type, make yourselection in the "Font" window. Click "OK" to save thechanges and click "OK" again. 4. 4 Turn on your printer if it is not on. Click the"Print" icon on the Print Preview window to print your web page.

The size of print that comes out of the printer is extremely small even though computer shows regular size. what do i do?


If you're printing an office document, then print size is regulated by the font size chosen in said document.

If you're printing a web page, I take it you have the "print" icon on your toolbar.

Click on the arrow down for the menu, select "Page setup" - Click on font and set the size of font to 10, 12 or whatever you're comfortable with.

Printed font size too small


Most web browsers have an option to change the text size on the page you are viewing. In IE8 it is accessible through the Page menu, Text Size. It defaults to Medium, and there are 2 smaller sizes and 2 larger sizes available.

Font size


You can change the dfont size from the menu, but that setting afects the entire page of print. You different size fonts are controled from the codes sent to the printer from the software. Recreate the document, or create a document with a sample of that small print and see if the printer prints it.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.
