Usage Guidelines

  • The value of this attribute must be one of the values of the font-resolutions-supported attribute.
  • Usually the font resolution and the printer resolution match, but there are two cases when they do not:
    • Some printer devices, for example, the InfoPrint 60 and InfoPrint 4000s, can print fonts of any resolution, although the print head is always 600 pels.
    • It is possible to print a document created with fonts of one resolution on a printer device with a different resolution by substituting fonts. Depending on the document, the output might or might not be acceptable.
  • The open-type value is only valid for printers that support TrueType or OpenType fonts. When you enter the open-type value for this attribute, the -truetype parameter is passed to the sap2afp command and is valid only for SAP datastreams. For more information about sap2afp command, see sap2afp command: transforms SAP OTF or ABAP data to AFP. For more information about TrueType or OpenType fonts, see Using OpenType Fonts in an AFP System.
