I am not sure if the FileMaker Font Encoder for Barcode Fonts works

Hello

I want to buy the UPC/EAN Font to use with the IDAutomation FileMaker barcode font encoder plugin for FileMaker but I am not sure if it works.

I downloaded the trial software and it doesn't work, I can't see the barcode fonts in my library.

I restarted several times, so now I'm a bit scared to buy it.

Operating System: OS 10.9.4

Application: Filemaker

Best Answer

The data does not appear to be encoded using the IDAutomation Font Encoder Plug-In for FileMaker. Verify that the encoder is used by following this video tutorial:


If this does not work, are you running FileMaker Server? If so, there may be some issues with using the plug-in. Try this solution.

You will need to purchase the Developer License. This license option allows the rights of the developer to work with the product. It also supports installation for up to 10,000 total users/distributions, which will certainly support your 5 computers including the developer computer. Please feel free to purchase the UPC/EAN Barcode Font Advantage Package at your convenience.

one more question :

Which package should I buy? I plan to keep on developing my filemaker application on 1 developing computer, and use the finished product on 5 computers including the developer.
Does this mean I need one license since theres only one developer or 5 since it will be used on 5?

The font encoder plug-in is a free encoder that can be used with the purchased font.

Purchase the UPC/EAN Font Package

It is also possible to test the demo font package before purchasing.

If you decide to purchase after using the demo, uninstall the demo before installing the sale version.

Did you also install a barcode font? If so, which font did you install?

This post and the your original post does not mention that any IDAutomation barcode fonts were installed.

To generate a valid barcodes using fonts, two components are required:
(1) a barcode font
(2) a font encoder - FileMaker Plug-In

If you have installed barcode fonts, review the post How to install Barcode Fonts on FileMaker Mac?
