Adding IBM PC Character Set to Fontware 2.00

PSS ID Number: Q46164 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




If you use PostScript printers, the Laserjet Series II, Series IID, or 2000 printers, you may copy the file PC8.CSD from the ETC directory on Disk 4 of the installation kit to the CSD subdirectory of your Fontware directory. This process adds “IBM PC” to the “Printer Character Set” list in the Fontware control panel.

Since the LaserJet Plus cannot print many of the characters in this character set, this file is not automatically installed for all users.

The following IBM PC character codes do not print on any HP printer: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 27. Fontware issues warnings in the FONTWARE.LOG file for these characters.
