Demo Font Different Height than Purchased Equivalent

We purchased the Code 39 Barcode Font Package and got it certified. Now with the purchased version, it seems smaller for a given font height designation (at the end of the font name - like S, M, L, XL, and so on).

Why is that and what do you suggest we do?

Operating System: WIndows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Unix

Application: Many

Best Answer

Using the fonts IDAutomationSXC39S (demo version) and its equivalent IDAutomationXC39S (purchased version), it will be noted that the difference in height is due to the 'demo text’ in IDAutomationSXC39S adding height to the top of the font, while still allowing the barcode to be scanned (to allow the demo to be fully functional and meet symbology specifications).

Side-by-side comparison (in Excel, zoomed in for clarity, with the font point sizes in parentheses after the font names):

Suggestions (as seen above):
· Column D: Increase IDAutomationXC39S in point size until the height is roughly equivalent (by trial and error) - side effect, width increases.
· Column E: Use a taller font to maintain the same width, for the same given data.
