As far as I know commercial morse services never tried to use the morse
code for printing.

Wildly OT- but in fact- machine printing morse systems predated most other variants of machine printing telegraphy. These were, of course, wireline systems, not radio link based. The mechanics of the last generation of page (as opposed to tape) printing systems were incredible. Among some of the 'museum' stuff I have here, there is a GNT morse transmitter (Wheatstone pattern) that uses pre-punched paper tape and can operate at well over 200 wpm.
