New Barcode Support Coming to KnowledgeKube

One of the common requests we get is the ability to generate barcodes, I am pleased to announce that we are busy adding the following barcode support to KnowledgeKube:

  • Self Checking Barcode Formats
    • Code 39 - An alpha-numeric barcode that encodes uppercase letters, numbers and some symbols; it is also referred to as Barcode/39, the 3 of 9 Code and LOGMARS Code.
    • Codabar - A numeric barcode encoding numbers with a slightly higher density than Code 39.
  • ​Linear Barcode Formats
    • Code 128 - Alpha-numeric barcode with three character sets. Supports Code-128, GS1-128 (Formerly known as UCC/EAN-128) and ISBT-128.
    • GS1-128 - used to create GS1-128 barcodes set by specs, including USPS Special Services barcodes.
    • Code 11 - High density numeric barcode used mostly in labeling telecommunications components.
    • Interleaved 2 of 5 - The Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode symbology encodes numbers in pairs, similar to Code 128 set C.
    • UPC, EAN & GTIN - This is one of the most common barcode types. It is used to encode the GTIN and also used to create JAN, ISBN and Bookland barcodes.
    • GS1 DataBar - formerly known as RSS Symbology. Used to encode the GTIN and other GS1 related data.
    • Code 93 - Similar to Code 39, but requires two checksum characters.
    • MSI Plessey - Designed by the Plessey Company in England and is used primarily in libraries and retail applications, such as on grocery store shelves.
  • ​Postal Barcode Formats
    • USPS Intelligent Mail IMb - A new USPS barcode that combines POSTNET and PLANET data into a single bar code. Formerly referred to as OneCode and the 4-State barcode.
    • POSTNET & PLANET - Used by USA post offices for mail delivery and tracking.
    • RM4SCC - Used by post offices in England and Australia for their Cleanmail Service. Used to create the CBC (Customer Bar Code), UK postcodes as well as Delivery Point Suffixes (DPSs)
  • 2D Barcode Formats
    • Aztec - A 2D matrix barcode type that does not require quiet zones.
    • MaxiCode - Used primarily by UPS to route and track packages.
    • QR-Code - A matrix symbol that is capable of encoding binary, ASCII and Kanji characters.
    • Data Matrix - A matrix symbol that allows very efficient encoding of data into a square barcode with error correction.
    • PDF417 - This unique 2D barcode type is commonly used on FedEx shipping labels and can be decoded with a PDF capable laser or CCD scanner.
  • ​MICR and OCR Fonts
    • MICR E13B - Used by banks in the USA and several other countries for MICR E-13B encoding.
    • OCR-A and OCR-B - A text font that is very easy for optical character recognition systems to read.
    • MICR CMC7 - Used by banks in France, Mexico and many Spanish speaking countries.
    • Security - Used to securely print text, names and currency amounts on highly secure documents.

Self-checking barcode fonts, such as Codabar and Code 39, only require an asterisk * before and after the data-to-encode, while all other barcode fonts require more advanced formatting to create a correct barcode symbol. KnowledgeKube will provide a number of new functions to correctly encode your data into a barcode presentable format.

​We will also include a fully licensed, redistributable font pack that can installed and incorporated into your Microsoft Word templates.

We don't currently have a release date, as soon as the feature is available we will let you know.
