    A question about printing symbols with ZPL

    Spiro Tech

      Hello all,

       

      I am having trouble printing out the ³ symbol. And I hope somebody can help me with it

      I have set up my ZPL code to try and print the ³(Small 3 for the m3/h symbol) and the °(degrees symbol) symbols.

       

      ^XA

      ^FWN

       

      ^CI1

      ^FB1800,3,5,L^FT15,315^A@A,0,0,E:ARI000.FNT^FH\^FD°³^FS

      ^FB1800,3,5,L^FT15,325^A@A,0,0,E:ARI001.FNT^FH\^FD°³^FS

       

       

      ^CI0

      ^FB1800,3,5,L^FT0,430^A0A,30,30^FH\^FD³°^FS

      ^FB1800,3,5,L^FT0,460^A0A,30,30^FH\^FD³°^FS

      ^XZ;

       

      I have downloaded some Arial fonts to the printer and with that font everything prints out perfect. So the first part is good.

      But with 90% of our labels we print with the standard font the zebra printers print out with.

      We have the Zebra ZT420 that I am testing it on at the moment.

       

      I am pritty new to ZPL and I have seen that you can do a character swap but I have no idea how it works and if it works for me.

      PS. the degrees symbol also works with the standard font, only the small 3 doesn't work.

       

      I also can't find a decimal sign for the small 3 on the zebra manual. https://www.zebra.com/content/dam/zebra/manuals/en-us/software/zpl-zbi2-pm-en.pdf page 1194.

       

      I hope any of you can help me!

      Thanks in advance.

       

      Kind regards,
