PCL font ID for the font XCP14iso-L ?

PCL font ID for the font XCP14iso-L ?

PCL font ID for the font XCP14iso-L ?

Hi all,

I was trying to change an XES font cammand to PCL but not getting the exact font type/size. In the XES program the font type is given as 'XCP14iso-L'. I tried with a PCL font command Esc(s0p16.66h8.5v0s0b0T, ie typeface '0'. But could not get the exact font. Could you please help to solve this problem?


RE: PCL font ID for the font XCP14iso-L ?

I suspect that XCP14 on Xerox is a fixed-pitch bitmap font (at size 8 point, 14 characters-per-inch (cpi)), with a sans-serif typeface.

Such a font is NOT generally available on LaserJet (or clone) PCL devices. Check which fonts ARE printer-resident by printing a PCL Typeface List (usually available via Test/Info menu on printer front panel).

The fixed-pitch LinePrinter font may come close in terms of the typeface, but (as a bitmap font) it is only available in one size (8.5 point, 16.67 cpi).
This is the font which your supplied sequence string will select.

The only other fixed-pitch fonts which are usually available (printer-resident) on standard LaserJets are:

Courier - scalable; serif; aspect ratio 60%


  Regular     {esc}(s0p#h0s0b4099T
  Italic      {esc}(s0p#h1s0b4099T
  Bold        {esc}(s0p#h0s3b4099T
  Bold Italic {esc}(s0p#h1s3b4099T

LetterGothic - scalable; sans-serif; aspect ratio 50%


  Regular     {esc}(s0p#h0s0b4102T
  Italic      {esc}(s0p#h1s0b4102T
  Bold        {esc}(s0p#h0s3b4102T

The closest match is probably going to be LetterGothic, perhaps using the Bold variant.

Otherwise, you'll have to obtain either a font cartridge (DIMM) to fit your printer model, or obtain a downloadable PCL soft font with the required characteristics.
