GS1 2D matrix not coding correctly

I bought one license for 2D which I am using with Filemaker,

I downloaded and installed the fonts, and the plugins

I followed all the steps from the video, and the website, and my barcodes look nothing like a 2D

see picture

Any suggestions?

Operating System: MAC OS X 10.9.4

Application: Filemaker 13

The 2D FileMaker Font Encoders are not compatible with Mac. For Mac, we have the streaming solution such as the IDAutomation Hosted Barcode Service.
Create Barcodes in FileMaker using the Hosted Service

If the issue occurs on Windows, there are a few things that you can check to ensure the Data Matrix barcode is properly created.

• Verify the IDAutomation plug-in uses the Data Matrix function

IDDM_EncDM(DataToEncode | ProcessTilde | EncodingMode | PreferredFormat)
Examples:
Standard encoding: IDDM_EncDM(Field_1)
Beginning with GS1 FNC1 in ASCII format:
IDDM_EncDM("(01)" & Field_1 & "|1|3")
Format symbol to type 29 in binary format:
IDDM_EncDM(Field_1 & "|0|0|29" )



• Verify that the font applied to the data is the IDAutomationDMatrix font.

• Verify the data (when set to Arial or Times New Roman) after it is encoded looks similar to:
AOBPCPGJAJDJFKAPHOFLBKHMGK
AJEBFLCLMAODGAJBDHMFAOOCKK
ALNPEAIDLKDFOOGLDLBNNDBKAK
AFANFPALPAEGOPDKHJADJBADHK
AFBLFPBCJEMKFPJLDAHKLOAAAK
AIKFJNGIFNILEHLCLKFONJLEKK
DLDLLDDLDDLDDDDDLDLDDLLDLL

When the IDAutomationDMatrix font is applied to the data, it should resemble a square with many modules inside of it. If not, expand the field to ensure that the entire barcode displays.
