Is there a way to get the QR barcode to produce in black only? It appears to produce as an RGB image while other barcodes like Code 128 produce in black only.

I would be interested in a reply to this post as well. We are having problems with the 2D Datamatrix barcode printing as CMYK instead of 100% black using PlanetPress 7. I see where this issue may not be a concern in PlanetPress Connect. Is there a way to be sure that the 2D generated barcode is kept at 100% black in the postscript or PDF output file?

Unfortunately, the barcode library used by PlanetPress does not allow it to control the color space for 2D barcodes.
