Native Generator Barcode appears too big

Hello,
I really liked the Native Barcode Generator for FileMaker. I am encountering problems with the width of the barcode and the numbers not displaying bellow the barcode. Once I find a solution, I am going to purchase it.

For example, I have to encode 9190808204455109603801532000021403311041263, (a big number, I know). Here in Japan, it is the procedure to make printed bills to pay at convenience stores.

I followed all the procedure to generate a GS1-128 barcode with the check digit.

Results:
1. A much bigger in width barcode than the default here in Japan. I already set the size to 2 and 3, but it is still too big. Is there any possibility to reduce the space between the lines?
2. No readable code bellow the barcode was generated. I also need to know what is the check digit is.

Thanks a lot and I look forward to purchasing the Native Barcode Generator for FileMaker.

Operating System: Mac OSX and Win 7

Application: Filemaker 11

Note: Since this question was resolved, IDAutomation has updated the FileMaker Native Barcode Generator products. The latest version offers easier and more accurate methods of generating barcodes in FileMaker.

Since Point Size 2 and 3 have been tried (as in Step 7 of the FileMaker Pro Barcode Native Generator) and the width cannot be fixed at a specific value (as it is the variable aspect of a linear barcode), the barcode font route might be tried.

Uninstall the FileMaker Native before attempting the following:

* Code 128 Barcode Font Package (the font to install).
* FileMaker Barcode Font Encoder Plugin (tutorial and download link). Note: this is not the same as the FileMaker Pro Barcode Native Generator.

With barcode fonts, one has greater control of the barcode size, since the font point size can be reduced.
