QR-Code Font Encoder App Tutorial

This tutorial describes how to easily generate a QR-Code barcode and paste it into an application. Refer to the Font Encoder Software Application site for other capabilities, including the ability to generate multiple barcodes, import features, 2D XLM export capabilities, and command line arguments.

  1. Install the QR-Code Font and Encoder version 2016 or later, and open the Font Encoder App.
  2. After the application starts, enter the information to be encoded in the "Data to Encode in Barcode" field and a QR-Code should appear in the barcode preview area. Select the "Copy to Clipboard" button.
    Generate QR-Code for easy copy and paste into applications.
  3. In a rich text application such as Microsoft Word, position the cursor in the area to place the barcode and choose Ctrl-V or Edit-Paste. It may be necessary to first create a single-cell table or column that is large enough to contain the QR-Code and paste the barcode into the table so that text can appear on the right or left side of the QR-Code. This option will also allow the barcode to be placed anywhere the table can be moved to.

    If white lines appear in the symbol, select the entire symbol, choose Line Spacing Options, and make sure the line spacing is set to 1. Additionally, ensure there is enough space available to contain the entire size of the QR-Code symbol.
