HORIZONTAL MOTION INDEX ( HMI )


LEGEND: Ec = [Ctrl] [P] [Esc] in DOS EDIT
  
  HORIZONTAL MOTION INDEX
     
     The Horizontal Motion Index ( HMI ) escape sequence
     will allow you to adjust the horizontal character
     spacing of your fonts by placing the characters closer
     together or further apart.  HMI will not alter the
     point size of your fonts.
     
     The HMI command should always be sent after any page
     orientation command.  Changes in the default left or
     right margin will result in a change to the default
     horizontal printable area.
     
     To invoke the HMI mode, type Ec&k#H. The # sign 
     designates a variable that is derived from the 
     following formula.
     
     (Horizontal Printable Area/Desired Characters per Line)
     X 120 = #
     
     Or:  If you know the desired pitch or number of
          characters per horizontal inch, use the following
          formula.
     
     (120/Desired Characters per Inch) = #
  
  HORIZONTAL PRINTABLE AREA DEFAULTS
     
     1)   portrait letter (8-1/2 x 11)  = 8 inches
     2)   portrait legal (8-1/2 x 14)   = 8 inches
     3)   landscape letter (11 x 8-1/2) = 10.5 inches
     4)   landscape legal (14 x 8-1/2)  = 13.5 inches
     
     Example:    To designate 88 characters per line on
                 letter sized paper, portrait orientation,
                 using the default 10 pitch Courier font.

                 (8 inches/88 characters) X 120 = 10.91
