Scale Font To Fit

‘Scale Font To Fit’ effect on display width of Barcode:

If ‘Scale Font To Fit’ is checked off :

For Any Field width, the barcode display width will not vary, it will be constant. Field width will not have any effect on display width. But the display width depends on the number of digits in the APN.

If ‘Scale Font To Fit’ is checked on
(For any font size):

  • Field Width = 59 or 60 or above: Display width tries to fit to the specified width. But if barcode has more digits and the field width is too small to fit, then it tries to fit in the smallest possible width.
  • Field width < 44: Compression will not happen. This works similar to the ‘Scale Font To Fit’ is checked off .
  • Field width from 44 to 58: Compression does happen but the barcode lines cannot be differentiated. It appears like single wide bars.
