How do I Download and Remap Fonts for a Zebra Printer?

Solution

Zebra: Font Re-map and Download Instructions

Some Zebra printers are capable of storing fonts. Zebra provides a utility called ZTools that allows TrueType Fonts [TTF] to be downloaded to a memory location.
Note: Contact Zebra for information regarding your printer's capability of storing fonts and for the latest version of ZTools. Loftware's Font Re-Map capability is in addition to the TrueType font category selection in the Loftware Label Manager Design Mode Properties Box.
Important: Do an Options/Test Print from ZTools to verify that the font is successfully downloaded to the printer.
Loftware Label Manager takes advantage of font re-map by substituting native fonts in the printer and re-mapping them to pre-downloaded TTF fonts. Up to three different fonts may re-mapped and defined in the printer by choosing Options/Preferences/Zebra tab.
