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.
  • 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. The X dimension of this font in PDF417 is about 65% less than the standard version. The standard fonts (without N5 in the name) have the PDF417 X dimension set to 3.
