Double wide characters

Postby gkuhn » Fri Mar 23, 2012 3:16 pm

Need some help please -

Working in DFD - v5.13. Went to print out the form specifications - Shift / F9 key combo and the output is in double wide characters - thus I am losing everything after 42 chars as I am printing to an 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

Anyone know the key combo to revert back to a pitch of 10-cpi ?

You probably only needed to re-start/cycle the printer..

DataEase sends codes to the printer, and the printer changes to that "condition" (the double wide font). The printer retains that code until it receives a reset, or you cycle the printer on/off.. When you re-booted.. you cycled the printer on/off..
