    It might depend on why the font is "too small". For example, a "small font" might be a misinterpretation of a portrait page rotated to landscape. A 132-char printline definition might be in effect even though only 72 characters are actually printed. The resulting page may be auto-rotated and give a smaller font appearance. Tom

    We solved this problem by using a workstation customizing object. Our printers are attached via TCP/IP - most with just an output queue description. The same workstation customizing object has given us good results on a variety of HP printers. If you like, I could send you the section of code that applies to 132 character print line.

    Hi,

    There are essentially two types of fonts that may be used in regular print outs. The first is changing the FONT parameter on a PRTF, or within a PRTF. You could also use OVRPRTF to change the FONT ID on QSYSPRT. The default font for most printers is 11 This is a 10 CPI font. You could also change the CPI to 15 for smaller printing. I list of font Ids, and which printers can use them is listed in the appendices of the CL Manual. The second method is to use GDDM vector fonts. These may only be used within the DDS of a PRTF.
