How to identify Barcode Fonts in Word Dropdownlist

Dear IDA Team.

Im testing your products actually.
I installed the IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantageDemo Package and the UPC/EAN Font Package.

When I open my Word 2007 i have now 12 Barcode Fonts and all look like Barcode in the Font Menu List.
How can I identify which Font I have to choose without using >RIGHT CLICK > FONT > and then search the font in the upcoming window?

Would it be possible to rename the Fonts > IDASC128XL so that the user can read the font name in the drop down list in Word?

Operating System: W7 pro X64 German

Application: Word / Excel 2007 32 Bit

There is an option to install Symbol Encoded Fonts that display the font name by name within the Font list:

1. Download the Code 128Font Package Demo or Sale version.

The example displays the sale zip file named IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantage.zip.

2. Right-click the zip IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantage.zip and select Extract All.

3. Once the process has completed, a folder will open with a folder named IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantage and a file named IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantage.exe.

4. Double-click the IDAutomation_C128FontAdvantage folder.

5. Double-click the TrueType with SymbolEncoding folder.

6. Left-click the first .ttf file, press and hold the Shift-key, and use the down arrow key to select all of the font files.


7. Right-click and select Install.

After installation, the fonts are ready to use.

The issue might be office related in the displaying our fonts. In other applications such as Wordpad, it is okay.

If all else fails, type the font name needed directly into the font selection box using the font names within the Specifications for C128.

Thank you very much for your feedback, it solved my problem to 50%.

Why is in my downloaded package no such readable font ?
I downloaded then the one you suggested and in that package was a folder with Symbol Encoding.

I installed one font and now i have an entry "IDAutomationSC12" in my dropdownllist but the most important part, the end, is not shown in that list.

Is this a problem because i have a german System ? There is some informatioon about "problems" with non-us Systems when using such Symbol Encoding Fonts.
