    Tallman Letters

    Does anyone know how to get a thermal printer to utilize Tallman letters as recommended by the ISMP?  The label works fine on a laser printer, yet when I've copied it over and added the THERMAL footnote, I lose the tallman letters.  It should look like this:  LORazepam.

    Here is a posting I found out on the L posted by Terry Lehman

    However on Datamax thermal labels this has always been a problem as any increase in size automatically switched the 'tallMANN' to 'TALLMAN'.
    Also I found the Datamax printers only responded to SIZE increases of 0.5 and did not respond to FONT=b

    To my surprise this has changed. I am working with a new C/S 5.55 and new Datamax M Class Mark II printers
    They now respond to FONT=B and to SIZE increases of 0.1 increments.
    PLUS they now print any size/font in 'tallMAN'.

    I don't know what changed at Datamax as Meditech has always told me this problem was beyond their control, but I wanted others who are planning to purchase printers to be aware of this.
