Printer fonts 13 Years, 8 Months ago  
I'm using AT 5.06, and have a small problem. The font I like to use is Dina, which is a very clear screen font. Unfortunately, when I print a screen or selection, the printer substitutes a particularly poor font, making the printed output almost unreadable.

Do I have to change to a font that the printer supports? Any chance of adding a printer font selector to AT?

Thanks.

AbsoluteTelnet should always use the same font for the screen and for screen-prints. A different font may be used if you're using passthrough printing.

Are you sure the printout is using a different font? Sometimes, AbsoluteTelnet may try to scale the font to fit your text onto the printed page, but it should always be the same font.

It doesn't look the same to me. Here's a scan of the print side-by-side with the actual terminal window:

Sorry, that link seems to be broken. Can you post it again?
