Available Font Sizes Not Listed in Printer Manual

SUMMARY

For several printers, such as the IBM Quietwriter III, IBM Proprinter XL, IBM Proprinter X24, and Epson printers and compatibles, Word supports more sizes for a given font than the printer documentation lists as being available. The additional font sizes are accessed in the Format Character “fontsize:” field.

The reason for this is that additional sizes for a font are created using the condensed, expanded, and double-high mode. For example, if the printer has a certain 12-point font, as many as three additional sizes could be created for this font. Condensed mode would give 8 point, expanded mode would give 16 point, and double-high mode would give 24 point.
