The ZPL programming language provides advanced font mapping and scaling technology to support outline fonts (TrueType or OpenType) and Unicode character mapping as well as basic bitmapped fonts and character code pages.
The printer’s font capabilities are programming language-dependent. The ZPL and the legacy EPL programming guides describe and document the fonts, code pages, character access, listing fonts, and limitations for their respective printer programming languages. See the printer programming guides for information on Text, Fonts, and Character support.
Zebra has a variety of utilities and application software that support font download to the printer for ZPL and EPL printer programming languages.
Some factory-installed ZPL fonts in the printer cannot be copied, cloned, or restored to the printer by reloading or updating firmware. If these licenses restricted ZPL fonts are removed by an explicit ZPL object delete command, they must be repurchased and reinstalled via a font activation and installation utility. EPL fonts do not have this restriction.
