Abstract

Scan-type printers can be modified to print a rotated page. In one version of such a system, a rotated font is used which utilizes a character box (matrix) of 18 x 24 dots. The height of the character corresponds to an escapement of six, the escapement being a unit of measurement. The rotated page is printed with alternate lines blank when using half-indexing.
