Barcode Studio 16.1 With Auto-Sized Fonts and SEPA Barcode Format

2021/02/03 | Barcode Studio V16.1

With the newly released Version 16.1 of TEC-IT’s Barcode Maker Software Barcode Studio it is now possible to add auto-scaled fonts (HRT) and encode SEPA bank transfers. Besides these new features, the release also includes some minor bug fixes. Here is a list of the main improvements:

  • Automatic Font Size
    The font size of the readable text can now automatically adapt to the barcode size. If Auto Size is enabled, the font size (including character spacing and text spacing) automatically increases and decreases with the module width.
  • Spot Color Support for PDF files
    Via command line, it is now possible to overwrite the barcode colors with spot colors. Currently only PDF files are supported.
  • Bar Width Reduction
    The new unit "micrometer" has been added to the bar width reduction. For 2- and 4-state barcodes, the bar width reduction has been corrected.
  • SEPA Barcode Format
    The Data Assistant now also supports the SEPA format (version 2), which is in use for QR codes for bank transfers.

More details can be found in the version history of Barcode Studio.
