Abstract

The present apparatus relates to impact printers of the print wheel or "daisy" wheel type which have interchangeable print wheels, i.e., multi-font, to permit variations in both type and style. In such apparatus, a selected print wheel is brought into operative association with the printer automatically upon the selection by either the control system or the operator.
