Automatic—Automatically selects the best available option.
Outline—A scalable vector-based font that defines each character as a set of distinct objects (such as lines, circles, ellipses, and boxes) that specify the shape and size of the character. This option uses less memory and reduces printing time for documents that contain large TrueType fonts.
Bitmap—A non-scalable, rasterized font made up on numerous pixels combined to form each different character. This is an appropriate selection if the font commonly used is one style and size or if the font is used in combination with graphics, such as a logo.
Native TrueType—A scalable, vector-based font. Fonts are downloaded to the printer in exactly the same form in which they are displayed on the screen. If your printing system supports TrueType rendering, this is the best way to print TrueType fonts. You should also use this setting if you are unable to print due to a printer memory shortage when using the Outline or Bitmaps settings.
TrueType is a trademark for a font technology developed by Apple which enables fonts to be scaled or modified without causing distortion on the screen or in print. TrueType font options are controlled through the Advanced Tab.
