Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Printing with printer control fonts from HTML

Posted by Brian Fenton on
Hi Bob,
thanks for the reply. I'm not sure I fully understand your question. Are you asking me what the printer "sees" when the letter A is sent to it using the control font? If so, I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. Is there an easy way of seeing that? In terms of what I see, I have a Word document with the letter A, I have my printer defaulted to my Epson thermal printer and my chosen font is "control". So it looks like any other Word document. I only get the control font in my list of fonts when I select the thermal printer.

I tried saving the Word document as RTF and opening it in a text editor (Textpad) and printing from there, but that just prints the A, instead of opening the till drawer. I don't know  how to preserve the font information in a text format.
