SUMMARY

Pacific Data Products has created a new font cartridge for use with the Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJets and Canon laser printers that combines all the fonts on HP font cartridges into one cartridge. In addition, Pacific Data Products has written its own printer drivers for Microsoft Word.

There are two packages from Pacific Data Products:

Contents Serial Number ——– ————-

2 high-density disks 20100-02 4 low-density disks 20094-01

Either package can be used with Word 5.0 or 5.5. Pacific Data does not have drivers available for version of Word previous to 5.0.

There are two printer drivers, the PAC25L.PRD and the PAC25P.PRD. The LaserJet Series II and the LaserJet 500 Plus can use both printer drivers. The LaserJet Series IID can use only the PAC25P.PRD printer driver. However, since the LaserJet Series IID can auto-rotate fonts, you can obtain both portrait and landscape with the PAC25P.PRD.

Pacific Data Products provides all technical support for its cartridge and printer drivers and can be contacted by calling (619) 597-3301.
