Using Symbol Encoded Barcode Fonts | FAQ
IDAutomation provides symbol encoded fonts as an optional installation within several barcode font packages, including Code 39, Code 128, DataBar, 2D Fonts and the Universal Font Package. All IDAutomation symbol encoded fonts created December 2014 or later contain the letter “Y” or the word "Symbol" in the font name. The table below describes the advantages and disadvantages of each.
NOTE: An issue was discovered with Microsoft Office where the font name may truncate under certain conditions in font preview mode. This is corrected in all 2016 and later versions of IDAutomation Symbol fonts.
