My barcode looks like this: BeforePreview while viewing it with the PP6 document.

Once I click Preview it looks like this in the PDF: AfterPreview

Some of my barcode settings are as follows:


Is this a common problem? What can I do to get the barcode to look right?

Thanks for any help you can give!

I am able to reproduce the issue, though I am not sure why it's doing this. It seems to have something to do with the barcode's width though, as using a larger width makes the height looks correct. Increasing the barcode's height in the basic attributes also works, though it will make the barcode looks bigger in the Design tool.
