How can I set dimensions of an Aztec barcode using the Label Software?

I am trying to get a little more control over the Aztec codes generated by the Barcode Label Software Pro. I need specifically to set the output code to C45 x 45 dimension and cannot find control to do this.

Operating System: Windows 7

The Aztec option in the Barcode Label Software Pro does not include the ability to modify the dimensions/size.

Because I do not recall every aspect of Aztec, I would have to review the specification. Though when the barcode includes more data, additional bull-eyes are added/rings/modules. I believe the product was created to meet specification but did not add additional functionality for sizing on its own because for most use cases, it is not necessary. I will looks at the spec distributor and see where you might be able to purchase a copy of it.

You may want to consider using another product as there will be no updates to this product to include the ability to manually re-size.

Dear Ben,

Bit muddled by the last reply. I did look at the link but frankly did not understand whats there. As you point out, there's no sizing option in the package I purchased, but I don't have any programming skills and would not know what to do with an XML online app.
Investigation suggests to me that my problem may not be the size, but the lack of the additional "ring" that appears within the centre of the code. In my package I get 2 rings in the centre, and the various apps struggle to read the code. When there is a third ring, its instant. Of course my package has no control to allow me to generate the third ring.
Using a competitors online device I find that when I specify a C45 x 45 size, an additional ring appears in the centre of the code. We find our systems read that code no matter what the size.

What is the third ring? I have been told it's a sighting or assist to the reader and acts a starting reference point. Could you suggest somewhere I could read and learn about this?

My need is to be able to produce labels with text and logos surrounding an AZTEC. That AZTEC needs the additional centre ring.

Based on the order number, you are using the 2010 version of the Label Software Generator Pro. All versions, including the 2013 (latest version) as of 4/9/2014, do not include an option to modify the XDimension which is the width in centimeters or MILS of the narrow bars.

The Aztec Font and Encoder is a product that includes the option to modify the XDimension.However, no IDAutomation Aztec products have an option to set the module size similar to Data Matrix's Preferred Format.

OK.

Do I need an upgrade or a change?

I cannot work with the output I am getting.
