RichText box Other Fonts with bahaviour like Fixed Sys font type

I retrive data in a rich text box which is normallt displayed in a Notapad editor.
With FixedSys Font type all the lines are lining up nicely.
But the problem is that I would like to display it in a smaller font size than 9pt, this is not possible with FixedSys. I also get problems when I print the Text.
Apparently the printer prints it in true type and the spaces which in FixedSys are working like a tubulator are not visible and the whole text looks out of line.

What other font type can I use to display it in smaller fonts. And how do I have to set my printer option ????

You can use Courier down to 6pts, this should print mono-spaced even on the printer.

In principle it works. Unfortuately there are only Font sizes 10, 12, 14 available. That is  probably the window default. Put at least it shows the unidistance spaces and on the screen the text looks o.k.
Unfortuately The printout looks still quiet messy and it looks like the printer prints a different font size than specified. I tried also the font "TERMINAL Regular 5pt". But the result remains the same the scrren looks fine but the printout messy.

Therefor in the following lines I put the source code I used to invoke the printer perhaps I have to set there something to get the right FONT on the Printout !!

CODE:
.CommonDialog_print.Flags = cdlPDReturnDC + cdlPDNoPageNums
   If .rtxt_htri_output.SelLength = 0 Then
      .CommonDialog_print.Flags                                   = .CommonDialog_print.Flags + cdlPDAllPages
   Else
      .CommonDialog_print.Flags                                   = .CommonDialog_print.Flags + cdlPDSelection
   End If
   .CommonDialog_print.ShowPrinter
   'Printer.Print ""
   .rtxt_htri_output.SelPrint .CommonDialog_print.hDC

Courier New is also a fixed space font.

You don't have to use only those sizes that are there by default. Windows will try to adjust if it can. If you font has 10 12 16 for sizes. Try printing with 5 6 or 8. You might even try 3.
