When you create a barcode field, it is assigned default properties. You can change properties by selecting Properties... from the shortcut menu. The properties modification dialog box comprises five tabs for different groups of properties.
Important! A barcode can be highlighted as a field or as a static element. This depends on the barcode value in the documents being processed: if it is intended for Document Definition matching or identification, you have to create it in the static elements mode. Meanwhile, if a barcode is intended for data capture, you have to create it in the field marking mode. Barcode properties differ depending on whether it is a field or static element. This section describes the field properties, see also anchor barcode.
