My new HP printer does not support internal fonts

Q: My new HP printer has many internal fonts. The problem is, in the RPM Remote Print ManagerĀ® ("RPM") text print setup, these fonts cannot be selected. What can I do if I want to use internal fonts with my printer?

A: HP printers that use PCL 6 such as the 4050 and 8100 models show they have internal fonts, however, when you try to use the internal fonts, they are not accessible. I believe this is a driver issue and not a printer issue. It is definitely caused by the printer and not the RPM program.

Have you tried using these fonts with any other program?

You can get access to these fonts by using an older driver such as the HP 4000 or the HP 8000 driver or another compatible driver.
