    How to use printer fonts of type text,
    eg draft for epson lx 300 printer (dot matrix printers)?

    There are dot matrix printers in some companies and how they have these models of dot matrix printers, change a super fast printing for printing in graphic mode is really unfeasible.

    In Crystal Reports I defined fonts in text mode by default opted Draft, with telerik report can not choose sources of Draft type.

    Hi Rubens,

    As far as i know there is no support for dot matrix printers, as this is very old hardware.
    Dot matrix printer drivers work best with plain text, so make sure you don't include any graphics in the report.
    Another option is to export the report to a plain text format, such as CSV, and then print that file. Note that CSV have some limitations, so you cannot represent a chart or an image there with Reporting.
