Changing Barcode Data Line - 03/02/04 03:43 PM


I have a document with the emulation set to Line Printer and I have Pages in Buffer set to 4 (I'm do a 4-up document). I created a Barcode object of type Postnet. I opened it up and its data selection defaulted to On Line 1, From Column 1, To Column 1. I changed "To Column" value to 12 so that it we be On Line 1, From Column 1, To Column 12. So far, so good. Next I made 3 copies of the above mentioned Barcode object. Then I opened the first one and tried to change its "On Line" value to 13. I noticed in the Data Pane it selected ever line between 1 and 13. Despite this, I clicked OK. My Barcode object got REALLY long so I re-opened it to check the data source and it was set back to "On Line"=1, even though I had just changed it to 13. I tried the same thing on the other two barcode objects whos "On Line" values needed to be set to 25 and 37 respectively and it did the same thing.

Verified and duplicated.

To work around the problem use the data selector pane instead of typing in the line number.
