Printer Fonts Selected by Dynamics

Issue

Howto tell which fonta report is printed in?


Resolution

Add the following setting to the Dex.ini file: DebugFonts=TRUE. The Dex.ini is found on each workstation.


It will create a file called DEBUGLOG.TXT in the folder where the Dynamics dictionary is located once you print a report.


The following is an entry in the DEBUGLOG.TXT file for Dynamics, printing an 81-character 10 CPI report. Each entry will be determined by the type and size of report printed.

The font the report printed with is Courier 10 CPI. This log file is mainly used for debugging purposes, but you also can use it to determine a report's font. Remove the defaults file setting after printing the report; otherwise, each time something is printed in Dynamics another entry will be added to the log file.
