The linedraw flag in the header section of a printer driver tells you which font the line draw font is.
The linedraw flag is stored in one byte (bits 0-7). The first 0-5 bits store the font number (0-63). If the value of the linedraw flag is within this range, the characters used to draw a line with the Format Border command are taken directly from the numbered font.
The sixth and seventh bits indicate that a line is drawn using the vertical bar hyphen method, based upon the following guidelines:
- If only the sixth bit is set, Word assumes the vertical bar character does not have a hole in the middle (as in the pipe character) and uses line spacing to line up the edges.
- If both the sixth and seventh bits are set, Word uses overlapping to account for the hole in the vertical bar character.
