QR-Code Font and Encoder Overview

QR-Code Font and Encoder Software This QR-Code package generates QR-Code symbols with font encoders and graphic encoders. IDAutomation's QR-Code software products support byte, text and numeric encoding modes according to QR Code 2005, ISO/IEC 18004:2006 and ISO/IEC 18004:2015 specifications. Because many scanners and decoders cannot easily read large symbols, IDAutomation suggests limiting the data encoded in a QR-Code barcode to 800 characters or less.

Features

In addition to the advantages mentioned previously, the following features are provided in this package:

  • This advanced QR Code barcode font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology, allowing for increased throughput and printing at small X dimensions. The IDAutomation 2D Barcode Scanner reads QR codes generated as small as 3 points, which is an X dimension of .025CM or 10 mils.
  • Examples for Microsoft® Excel, Access, Word, SSRS, FileMaker, OpenOffice, and Crystal Reports included.
  • Custom tilde functions allow an easy method to encode tabs and returns between fields within a QR barcode symbol.
  • International language and Unicode encoding are supported as UTF-8 in Excel, Word, Access and Crystal Reports.

Multiple QR-Code Encoders Provided

QR-Code Encoder Features Comparison

Multiple encoders in the QR-Code generator software provide more options for integration into various applications and environments. It is necessary to use an encoder because of the complexity of QR-Code encoding and error correction algorithms. Font encoders return a text string that will generate a readable QR-Code barcode when combined with the appropriate QR-Code 2D font. The features chart below lists the encoders provided within each package.

Great Support

Review by Rachel on 4/9/2015

Initially we bought the Crystal Reports QR-Code Native Barcode Generator (Single User License) and the Crystal Reports Code-128 & GS1-128 Native Barcode Generator (Single User License. The support team quickly answered some initial issues, then it was identified that the QR Native Barcode Generator was not suitable. A swift refund was made and the IDAutomation QR Code Font and Encoder solved the problems.

Thanks for Your Products and Support!

Review by Mike on 4/27/2014

We are using your QR Code encoder and font package to print 4"x6" license plate labels from Crystal Reports and it is working wonderfully. It was a very easy install on the machine we have designated for the printing job. We had used the DEMO version of the software to set up our Crystal Report before hand, and the full version installed right over the DEMO version seamlessly. The Customer Service at IDAutomation was very helpful in answering our questions before we made the purchase. That was a big help in the decision as well.

Super Easy

We used this to catalog scanned documents... super easy

Very Easy to Use

Review by David on 4/16/2014

The QR Code Font and Encoder Package has made it very simple for me to integrate QR codes into the FileMaker databases I develop. I can now offer my clients the option of printing smaller barcodes without compromising too much on the content. It is very easy to use. The instructions (especially the video tutorial) made it easy to identify exactly what to do to get going. I ultimately decided on this product over others because I got to test a fully functional demo without a time limit. Other products only let you demo for 2 hours. I find that unappealing because I often need days to thoroughly test new features.

We are Extremely Satisfied

Review by John on 3/16/2014

The product did very fine and was as per our expectation. We integrated it into our product and we didn’t face any issues. We have been using your components since long and earlier used PDF 417 and font packages. We are extremely satisfied with your products and would like to see more products with technical advancements in future.
