ArtFlex Barcode - Features & Benefits
- Easy, Fast, Reliable
ArtFlex Barcode Plugin allows to create barcodes in a document without leaving the main application. No need for external application.
- Multiple Barcode Types
ArtFlex Barcode supports all major barcodes, with new types added regularly. Supported types include: EAN 13, EAN 8, UPC-A, UPC-E, ISBN, ISSN, ITF-14, CODE-39, CODE-39 HIBC, CODE-128, CODE-128 HIBC, GS1-128, CODABAR and MSI Plessey.
- Dynamic Changes
Barcode settings can be changed dynamically whenever it is needed – even after saving, closing and reopening the document.
- Illustrator & InDesign Compatibility
Same features, same interface, same reliability in both Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign.
ArtFlex Barcode Plugin makes magnification changes simple. It detects the barcode's settings when it is selected. Scale reference points help to choose the right scaling direction.
Bar Width Reduction
The ArtFlex Barcode’s Bar Width Reduction (BWR) feature adjusts the bar thickness to compensate the press gain which can occur during the print process. BWR helps to avoid a frequent print issue when the ink spread is too strong and therefore the code readability is decreased.
Human Readable Interpretation (HRI)
ArtFlex Barcode allows to position HRI on the bottom or top of the barcode, align them left, right or center, and change their tracking. This function works for all barcode types that support HRI positioning options.
Besides the built in OCR-B font, ArtFlex Barcode plugin allows to use any font available in the operator's working station. Tracking, vertical shift and size of the font can be amended to achieve the best results.
Snap to Output Resolution
ArtFlex Barcode’s Snap to Output Resolution option adjusts the barcode automatically to create a pixel-perfect match to the indicated resolution. This feature can be useful for print tool preparation.
Presets contain values specified by the user in the ArtFlex Barcode window. Thanks to presets users can create a barcode in Illustrator and open it in InDesign or vice versa. The barcodes have identical specifications, look the same and can be handled identically in both Illustrator and InDesign applications.
HIBC Code Assistant
ArtFlex Barcode includes professional support for HIBC barcodes, helping the user incorporate information accurately. Concatenated Data Structure combines the information provided in Primary and Secondary Data Structure and shows up in the Code field.
GS1 Code Assistant
GS1 Code Assistant will make a detailed analysis of the code and in case the code is wrong the plugin will show up a warning. GS1 Code Assistant checks the format, but not the date and other information.
And many other great features...
