Apple Color StyleWriter 2400 Fonts

Internal Fonts

The Color StyleWriter 2400 uses bitmap (or TrueType) fonts. The Macintosh sends a bitmap of each page through the serial connection to the printer. A bitmap is a dot-by-dot "guide" to each letter or image on the page. It is created in QuickDraw, the Macintosh's internal language.

The following TrueType are shipped with the Color StyleWriter 2400:

The lights indicate a problem

Both lights are off. To conserve energy, the printer turns itself off if it's left idle for some time (usually about 5 minutes). If you suspect a problem, press the power button. If the lights remain off, check to make sure the power cord is plugged in properly and the outlet has power. If you can't turn the printer lights on, see the information about service and support that comes with this printer.

The error light grows steadily. Either the printer is out of paper or the paper has misfed. Check your Macintosh screen and the printer's control panel display for messages.
The error light blinks. The ink cartridge may not be seated properly. Open the printer's cover. Make sure the cartridge is inserted properly, and that the bright blue lever is firmly lowered to secure the cartridge in place.

Sharing your printer with other users

If your computer is connected to other computers over an AppleTalk network, you can allow other users on the network to print on your Color StyleWriter 2400. The technology that lets you do this is called ColorShare.

To share the printer with other users, follow these steps:

1. Select Chooser from the Apple menu.

2. In the Chooser dialog box, make the following changes:


First, click on the Color SW 2400 icon, then select the port that the printer is connected to under "Connect to:"

Click the Setup button

3. In the sharing setup dialog box, make the changes you want.

To share your printer, click to place an X in the Share this Printer box.

Type a name for your printer in the Name box. To avoid confusion, give it a unique name.

To make your printer available only to people you choose, type the password in the Password box. To use your printer, others must type the password exactly as you have, so remember how you typed the word, including where you used uppercase and lowercase letters or spaces before or after the word.

4. To keep a record of what's printed on your printer, click the "Keep Log of Printer Usage" checkbox to put an X in it.

You can open and print the log with SimpleText or TeachText, or another word-processing program. To find the log file, open your System Folder; then open the Preferences folder, and open the Printing Prefs folder.

Note: You can keep a log even if your printer is not shared.

5. Click OK to close the sharing setup dialog box.

Sharing works only if background printing is turned on. If it is not turned on, ColorShare turns it on.

6. Close the Chooser (click the close box in the upper-left corner).

If Color StyleWriter 2400 software has been installed on their Macintosh computers, other users connected to the network can now use your Color StyleWriter 2400.

Important: For others to be able to use the shared Color StyleWriter 2400 printer, your Macintosh must be turned on.

Connecting a Color StyleWriter 2400 to a LocalTalk network

If you have the optional Color StyleWriter 2400 LocalTalk Module, you can connect a Color StyleWriter 2400 printer to a LocalTalk network.

To attach the LocalTalk Module and connect your Color StyleWriter 2400 to the network, follow the instructions that come with the module. Once the printer is on the network, its name appears in the Chooser just like other network printers.
