When the Overstrike flag (%) is turned on and inserted between two characters, it causes the first of the two characters to be overstruck by the following one. By default, the Overstrike flag is disabled. This capability allows the printing of characters not normally available, for example, a European 7, which is a 7 overstruck with a hyphen. Three or more characters can be overstruck, but only if you specify the /BACKSPACE qualifier in the DSR command line. Otherwise, only the first and last characters in an overstrike sequence will appear. The action performed by this flag (as opposed to the flag's recognition) can be disabled and reenabled by the .DISABLE OVERSTRIKING and .ENABLE OVERSTRIKING commands.
1 – Default
Recognition is turned off. To turn on recognition, you must use the .FLAGS OVERSTRIKE command.
