Printing a Zero with a slash using the ^CI command
 

With Zebra internal fonts you can use the ^CI command to direct the mapping of the zero character to print with or without a slash. (if the font has a zero with a slash in the character set) For example, the ^AA font using ^CI0 will print with a slash while using ^CI1 will print without the slash.

Here is another example unique to the ^A0 font set. The Zebra internal font zero without a slash is by default recalled from location decimal 48. There is a zero with a slash located at decimal 157. Re-mapping the printer to recall the the 0 with a slash requires the following ^CI command  (^CIx,157,48) Read More>>

Example will print a zero with a slash in the A0 character set

^XA
^CI0,157,48
^FO20,20^A0,40,40^FD0123456789^FS
^XZ

Some character sets have the zero character at location decimal 26 and decimal 48.

^XA
^CI0,26,48 (Changes location 48 (zero with slash) to look at 26 (zero without a slash))
^XZ

The ^CI re-map is not saved but can be used in a autoexec.zpl file to run on printer startup.
