Hi Robin, Thanks for your

Hi Robin,

Thanks for your reply.

We are using Zebra Printer MZ320 CPCL Printer, If possible please let us know what Thai font Zebra MZ320 Printer supported ? Because we tried to insert ANGSA NEW.TTF and ANGSA UPC.TTF, and try to print but seems it can only print ??????? or some wired character. And is it Zebra MZ320 Printer only support CPF extension font file ?

We highly appreciate if you provide an example printing Thai character with desired Thai Font supported in Zebra MZ320 Printer. Waiting for your reply.

Thanks,

Nikesh

Hi Nikesh,

I'm glad you got something working. 

For future reference:

CPF files are the only font type supported by CPCL.  TTF fonts must be converted to this before sending them to the printer.  The White Paper I linked above has instructions for using the Font Downloader tool of Zebra Setup Utilities to convert fonts for CPCL.

Hi Abbas, The encoding for

Hi Abbas, The encoding for Thai is CP874.

Here are a few sites that explain the encoding:

ISO/IEC 8859-11 - Wikipedia

Windows Codepage 874 - Character Code Listing

Character encoding and code pages in simple terms are a way to specify which characters are associated with a set of bytes.   Common encoding types are ASCII, and UTF-8.
