Yes, I have one of those somewhere. You could automatically draw bar
charts and pie charts from data entered at the keyboard. It also has a
Centronics input which uses the same command set as the stand-alone
smaller plotters. This typewriter came with 2 sets of pens. One was the
normal black/blue/green/red set. The other included a pen full of Tipp-Ex
type correcting fluid. Yes, you did delete a character from the paper by
writing it with that pen (!).
