Printer Fonts

The ZD Series printer supports multiple languages and fonts.
You can avail of advanced font mapping and scaling technology available with your printer using the ZPL programming language. ZPL commands support the following:
  • Outline fonts (TrueType and OpenType)
  • Unicode character mapping
  • Basic bitmapped fonts
  • Character code pages
The font capabilities of your ZD Series printer are programming-language dependent.
  • For descriptions and documentation of the fonts, code pages, character access, listing fonts, and limitations for their respective printer programming languages, see the ZPL and the legacy EPL programming guides.
  • For information on Text, Fonts and Character support, see your printer's programming guides.
Zebra has variety of utilities and application software to enable font downloads to the printer for the ZPL and EPL printer programming languages.
Some ZPL fonts that are factory-installed in your printer are license-restricted. They CANNOT be copied, cloned, or restored to your printer by reloading or updating the firmware.
If these license-restricted ZPL fonts are removed using an explicit ZPL object delete command, you will need to repurchase and reinstall them using a font activation and installation utility.
EPL fonts do not have this restriction.
