Font Enhancement Mode

On 480/600 switchable printers or 600 DPI printers, operators are presented with a pop-up window to select whether font enhancement is desired. The window presents two options:

The pop-up window appears when the operator selects 480 DPI printhead resolution or IPDS Resolution for 600 DPI printhead resolution. Specifying YES causes the printer to initiate additional smoothing algorithms for 240 DPI and 300 DPI raster fonts when they are printed with the 480 or 600 DPI printhead. For most cases, selecting YES results in better print quality. However, because print aesthetics are subjective, this enhancement can be turned off for either single-byte or double-byte fonts or both by specifying NO. Specifying Yes to this option should have little or no impact on printer performance.
