Abstract

A paper bail actuator mechanism is disclosed for use in an automatic paper feeder used with a printer subsystem of a word processing system. The paper bail actuator mechanism moves the paper bail of the printer to an in or out position with respect to the platen. With reference to the figure, the paper bail 11 is pushed out from the platen 12 until the front edge of the paper is past the bail 11. The bail 11 is then pulled in toward the platen 12 and allowed to reference against the platen 12.
