HP DJ500 Draft Mode Required to Print TrueType Fonts in Draft


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11


If the print quality mode on a Hewlett-Packard (HP) DeskJet 500 printer is set for non-draft or letter quality printing, you cannot print TrueType fonts by selecting Draft Mode in the Printer Setup dialog box if you are using the following printer driver:

  • The HP DeskJet driver version 1.1 that ships with Windows 3.1.


The HP DeskJet 500 Printer Owner's Manual states that selections made through your software always override hardware settings. However, if the printer is configured for letter quality output, this setting will override any software settings made in Windows 3.1.

If the printer is configured for draft mode, software settings will override the hardware settings. Therefore, if the printer is set for draft mode, TrueType fonts can be printed in both draft and letter quality.

Printer fonts are not affected and can be overridden by software selections in either mode on the HP DeskJet 500.
