Part Number: CA First Edition: February Contents 1 2 3 Introduction With barX, you can add a dynamic barcode to your Adobe Illustrator document without leaving your application. Dynamic means that your barcode settings can be changed later on, even after you saved, closed and reopened your document.
You select a barcode type from the dropdown list, select an orientation and you define the barcode in the dialog which changes according to the kind of barcode that you have chosen. Mind that usage of this menu is for non-variable jobs only, where you type in the barcode manually. For variable data jobs, when you want to print every label with a different barcode, barcodes are made within the VDP plugin.
Please refer to the VDP manuals: Rotation To rotate your barcode 90 or degrees, you can use the rotation buttons next to the Type dropdown. For any other rotation angle use the Rotation input field. This is necessary to adapt the barcode to printing processes where the ink tends to ‘bleed’.
To compensate for this ink bleeding, the bars have to be a little thinner. The exact value will be provided by your printer or customer. If the printer specifies for example that the line width will increase with 0.
By default, the value 0 is entered for all barcodes. This means that the bar width is not adapted. A negative value in this input box results in thicker bars, a positive value in thinner bars. See also Device Compensation below. But some customers give a separate value for the device bleed compensation.
Whereas the bleed tackled by the Bar Width Reduction is caused by the substrate your artwork is printed on, the device bleed is caused by the plate or film making process.
If you only have one compensation value, use the Bar Width Reduction field, and leave this field on a value of 0. If you use both fields, the sum of their respective values will be used to compensate the thickness of the barcode lines. A negative value results in thicker bars, a positive value in thinner bars.
Magnification Represents a reduction or enlargement percentage for proportional reduction or enlargement of the barcode. The value is an absolute factor which is automatically rounded depending on the type of barcode.
As barcodes are magnified or reduced in size, the relationship between the bars remains constant The widths of individual bars and spaces however, are increased or reduced. Height The height of the barcode. The height covers the height of the bars and the digits if any. Although the height does not contain information, it has to be sufficient to allow for efficient reading of the code.
Warning Do not change the height of the barcode before entering a Magnification value. The height will change again according to the Magnification factor that you define. Output resolution Defines the resolution for the exposure of the barcode. The unit is ppi. Box To automatically create a box behind the barcode. You can use the link button to link the 4 box margin values and get the same distance around the barcode.
This correction is performed to ensure the ‘elementary cell size’ of the selected barcode type maps to an integral number of output pixels in the selected output resolution. The correction is necessary to prevent unevenly distributed errors equal to one device pixel on the widths of some of the bars.
For example: The EAN specification imposes an elementary cell width of 0. If the user enters a magnifaction value, it will be corrected so that the corrected value multiplied by 0. Light margin indicator Enabling this option will create a bigger-than sign at the end of the barcode, indicating the minimal width of the barcode box for optimal reading. The barX palette will show the parameters of a barX barcode when you select it in your document.
The button in the barX palette to create a barcode will change in an Apply button, pressing this button will update the selected barcode. Tip If your graphical respresentation of your barX barcode has been changed e. The barcode object thus will be recreated using the same properties at the same position. Positioning of the barcode object If you have boostX installed on your Adobe Illustrator application, creating a barcode will center the barcode object on the current boostX crosshair position.
If no boostX crosshair is found in the document, the barcode will be centered on the current viewport of your active document window. The string to be encoded. The encoding of control characters or binary data currently is not supported. Symbol Type: Datamatrix codes exist in different sizes.
And the larger the size, the more data can be embedded. Cell size: This is the dimension of the basic square cell. Height and Width: The height and width of the total barcode. Changing any of these settings will automatically change the related fields. Printed in Israel. File Type: Yes Page Count: XMP toolkit 2. Acrobat Distiller 8. FreeHand 9: LaserWriter 8 8.
