I'm trying to use the EPL fonts (fonts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7) in my ZPL label template. I'm getting some text to print on the label, but it's all spaces and special characters -- not the actual text that I specified in my ZPL code! Any idea what the problem is?
Here's some sample ZPL (it prints things like ")ÌÓ( Ó( Ã )Í() $ £ƒ¢\Ç"):
^FO100,100^A1^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,200^A2^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,300^A3^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,400^A4^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,500^A5^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,600^A6^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
^FO100,700^A7^FDTHIS IS A TEST - 12345^FS
Thanks for any hints!
Unfortunately EPL fonts are not compatible with ZPL. ZPL has it's own built in fonts or you can download a font you want to use with the Zebra Setup Utility. You basically confused the ZPL engine by giving it font names it didn't recognize. Besides that, it looks like your character encoding may not be ASCII. Specify the character set with the ^CI command.
