Abstract

A control arrangement is described for monitoring case shift correspondence between the main control logic and the printing mechanism of an electronic typewriter that performs operations according to fixed printing cycles. When a disparity exists, the control arrangement delays printing inserts a shift cycle to permit coordination to be reestablished.
