Selecting Typestyles
You can produce a wide range of typestyles  by combining different
character fonts, widths, and other enhancements. You can select
typestyles  using the DIP switches or software commands. For
information on the available features, see the section on enhancing
your printing in Chapter 4.
Character fonts
The DFX-8000’s draft font produces lower-resolution characters with
fewer dots per character for high-speed printing. It is ideal for
rough drafts and editing work. To select the draft font, turn 
off DIP
switch 
1-5. 
The DFX-8000 can print the draft font at two speeds.
The draft font printing speed is high when DIP switch 
2-2 
is off and
normal when the. switch is on.
NLQ mode produces high quality text characters at a slower
printing speed. The DFX-8000 offers two NLQ fonts, Roman and
Sans Serif. To select NLQ  mode, turn on DIP switch 
1-5 
In Epson
ESC/P mode (which is selected when DIP switch 
1-4 
is off), Roman
is the default font selected when DIP switch l-5 is on. You can
select Sans Serif with the software command ESC k. (In IBM
emulation mode, Sans Serif is the default font selected 
when 
DIP
switch 
1-5 
is on.)
The following samples show the characters for each font.
