2D Font Specifications

Several font versions and combinations are provided in the package:

  • IDAutomation2D is the standard 2D font that should be used in most implementations. The PDF417 N dimension of this font is set to 3.
  • IDAutomation2D S is a smaller version with a ratio and spacing of the glyphs designed to withstand multiple generations of degradation, such as scanning, reprinting, faxing and when scanned from a phone or mobile device. The smaller version also prints precisely to low resolution 203 and 300 dpi printers.
  • IDAutomation2D XLS is a TrueType only version for use in Excel. This is the only font that will work properly in Excel. The X dimension of this font is slightly larger than IDAutomation2D.
  • IDAutomation2D XS is an extra small version designed to only be used when the point size cannot be easily lowered to the desired size. This font is 50% smaller than IDAutomation2D S.
  • IDAutomation2D N5 fonts in the "PDF417 N=5" folder have the N dimension of PDF417 set to 5.
  • PDF417 Dimensions: When using PDF417 the X dimension of the IDAutomation2D font is 1/2 of what is listed in the X Dimension Chart below, which is about 12 MILS when printed at 8 points. The X dimension of the IDAutomation2D N5 font is about 1/4 of what is listed in the X Dimension Chart below, which is about .010" or 10 MILS when printed at 12 points.
