Modifying the FGID and CPGID GRID files

You can add new entries to map your GRID data to the resident fonts in your printer by modifying either the fgid.grd.sample file or the cpgid.grd.sample file. If you have a printer that does not support the outline font technology (such as the InfoPrint 3835 Advanced Function Printer), We recommend that you map all the CZnnnn entries to raster font character-set names. If you do not create this mapping, InfoPrint issues an error message and does not print the job.

For example, if you wanted to map the Times New Roman Latin 1 character set to the raster version, you would do these steps:

  1. From theAIX command line, change to the /var/psf/PrinterName directory, where PrinterName is the name of the InfoPrint physical printer representing the printer device.
  2. Create the fgid.grd file from the fgid.grd.sample file. Enter the command:
    cp /usr/lpp/psf
