We want to start printing the USPS Intelligent Mail Barcode. We output the entire 65 character "ADTF" barcode string from BCC software. We change the font to USPS4CB. We are using a font pitch of 16 because this makes the barcode fit the required length for USPS. It looks fine on the screen in PSM in design mode. But preview mode and printing seems to cause the last bar to wrap under some of the time. The text box with the barcode is at least an inch wider than the barcode.

Jim_P,

Try enlarging the box a bit more, and see if it helps.

If it doesn't, make sure there are no characters in your datafield that would cause the lines to skip, such as CRLF and such. It may be difficult to know, but you could try to manually type the field's content, and see if the same thing happens. If not, then there could be something in the field.

If all fails, then we might need to take a closer look at the database file itself. You can report a technical support issue by going on our web site, and then Services->Support->Report an Issue. We will be able to assist you in finding out what causes the wrapping.

Regards,
Rapha

Make sure it is only 65 characters & you can go down to a 15.5pt. Also set your leading to 17pt minimum.

Alternatively, in the mean time a new barcode plug-in, that can generate many more barcodes, including 2D barcodes was made available. (requires min. care date of 06-2009)
