Chartbot Barcodes
How It Works
Chartbot works in a unique manner: start by Placing a special EPS file built with Soft Horizons' technology. Text data and commands in a text frame Grouped with the Chartbot EPS graphic are automatically converted into a barcode. All in one step. No barcode fonts are used.
How to create a barcode in InDesign
  1) Start by PlacingChartbot Barcode's EPS. The image you see isn't a preview—it's just a generic "stand-in" for positioning.

2) Enter formatting commands and data in a text box on or near the Chartbot Barcode's EPS. Group the text box and Chartbot. The data will not print, but instead will feed data to the barcode.

Data and formatting commands may be typed in manually, or may be variable-data variables (e.g. Data Merge) — or a mix of the two.


3) Right-click or Control-click, select the Chartbot submenu, then Update, Hide Text Frame.

The barcode will appear, text box will be hidden.

You can Update one barcode at a time, or the whole document all at once.


4) You can unhide the text, edit the data & formatting instructions, then Update again.
