Fountext88 is a graphic printer driver for use with the Text87 and Text87 Plus4 word-processor. Unlike other Text87 printer drivers, you do not need to Attach the correct screen font to a printer typeface, making this driver easier to use than some of the others.

Aimed at Epson compatible 9 pin and 24 pin dot-matrix printers, Fountext88 adds 30 high quality fonts (up to 72 pixels high and in different styles) for use with the printed output - they are all user defined fonts, rather than just using the ones built into the printer - thus ensuring that the printed output accurately reflects the fonts shown on screen.

The program can be configured for two print densities and has a choice of single pass printing, or overlapping double pass printing.

As a result, you can design your own special characters and incorporate pictures you have produced using QL graphics programs using the companion software Founted89.
