Download Format Command

The ^DF (Download Format) command saves the ZPL II format commands as text strings to be later merged using ^XF with variable data. The format to be stored may contain Field Number (^FN) commands to be referenced when recalled.
While use of stored formats will reduce transmission time, no formatting time is saved since this command saves the ZPL II as text strings which need to be formatted at print time.
