Modifying the charset and codepage GRID files

You can avoid having InfoPrint download fonts by adding font entries that map the font character set or code page that is most referenced in jobs to a global identifier for a resident font.

For example, if your jobs specify the Prestige 10-point font, which is character set C0S0PR10, and that font is not available you can map the Prestige 10-point font to a similar font that is either resident on your printer or available for InfoPrint to download to your printer. In this procedure, you map the Prestige 10-point font to Gothic 10-point font, character set C0D0GT10.

Do these steps:

  1. Open the file <install path>\grd\charset.grd.sample in a text editor such as Notepad.
  2. Click File → Save as. Rename the file charset.grd and save it into the <install path>\var\psf\PrinterName directory, where PrinterName is the name of the InfoPrint actual destination representing the actual device.
  3. Edit the charset.grd file you just created. Copy this line for the Gothic 10 point printer-resident font:
    C0D0GT10  40   - 144   240     #  GOTHIC TEXT 10
  4. Change the first entry in the copied line (in the FCS name column) to the character set identifier of the Prestige 10 point font that you want to map to the Gothic 10 point font. You can change the comment at the end of the copied line to identify the mapping change you are making.
    C0S0PR10  40   - 144   240     #  PRESTIGE 10 mapped to GOTHIC TEXT 10
  5. Search the remainder of the charset.grd file to make sure that it contains no other C0S0PR10 entries. A later entry of the same character set would replace the entry you just made.
  6. Save your changes and close the file.

If you want to print jobs that specify the personal computer ASCII codepage for Iceland, T1000861, but that codepage is not available, you can map codepage T1000861 to the personal computer multilingual codepage for ASCII data, T1000850.

Do these steps:

  1. Open the file <install path>\grd\codepage.grd.sample in a text editor such as Notepad.
  2. Click File → Save as. Rename the file codepage.grd and save it into the <install path>\var\psf\PrinterName directory, where PrinterName is the name of the InfoPrint actual destination representing the actual device.
  3. Edit the codepage.grd file you just created and copy this line for the personal computer multilingual codepage for ASCII data:
    T1000850        850     980  # PC MULTILINGUAL
  4. Change the first entry in the copied line (in the code page name column) to the codepage identifier of the personal computer ASCII codepage for Iceland that you want to map to the multilingual codepage. You can change the comment at the end of the copied line to identify the mapping change you are making.
    T1000860        850     980  # ICELAND MAPPED TO MULTILINGUAL
  5. Search the remainder of the codepage.grd file to make sure that it contains no other T1000860 entries. A later entry of the same character set would replace the entry you just made.
  6. Save your changes and close the file.
