MACRO OVERLAY COMMAND Legend: Ec = [Ctrl][P][Esc] is DOS EDIT DEFINITION When a macro is enabled for overlay, its execution is the final operation each time a page is printed. Before the macro is executed, the current modified print environment is saved and replaced with the overlay environment. The overlay environment is a combination of user default and the current modified print environments. Changes made to feature settings during the macro overlay are recorded in the modified print environment; however these changes are not retained upon completion of the macro overlay. The modified print environment that existed prior the macro overlay is restored. EXAMPLE The following commands create and enable the macro for later use by the printer: Command Function EcE Printer Reset Ec&f1Y Macro ID Number 1 Ec&f0X Start Macro Definition Ec*p500x300Y Absolute Cursor Position 500 dots in X, 300 dots in Y Macro Example Macro Text Ec&f1X Stop Macro Definition Ec&f10X Make Macro Permanent The following commands contain the Overlay command that invokes the macro: Ec&f1y4X Combined printer command, Macro ID number 1, Overlay macro Ec*p150x600Y Absolute cursor position 150 dots in X, 600 dots in Y Ec(s1p60v0s0b4168T Antique Olive font, 60 point size Macros are fun!

The page eject command (Ec&l0H) can be used in the place of the reset to eject the current page and continue using the macro overlay on following pages.
