  • Patent number: 3968868
    Abstract: A system for positioning final copy printed text, upon a first printing, at a specified location on a line in a format determined by input keying. The location can be a blank block on a form to be filled in. After initial setup and during any input or output operation, a final copy printed text mode can be entered by an operator and stored. This will inhibit printing upon further keying until a carrier return is keyed following the text. The printer carrier is positioned through spacing, backspacing, tabbing, etc. relative to the left side of the block, and codes representative thereof are also stored. When the carrier is at the left side of the block, the keying of a variable space or character will define a tentative format and this location, and a variable space or character code will be stored. Then the text is keyed and stored.
