Abstract

A typewriter, which functions as a personal computer printer and is connected thereto, may have its margins set independently of the personal computer and other features also may be set independently of the personal computer. When it is desired to set the margins of a typewriter, which is used as a printer for a personal computer, independently of the personal computer, the typewriter is removed from the control of the personal computer by depressing a CODE key and an alphanumeric key such as the 6 key, for example. Then, activation of the CODE and LMAR keys enables the left margin to be set at the location at which the carrier of the typewriter is located at that time. The right margin can be set by moving the carrier to the desired right margin location and activating the CODE and RMAR keys.
