%Page Number% in a barcode

Post by essexmate » Wed Jul 17, 2019 3:00 pm

Anyone know how to add a page number to a Pitstop barcode? The variable %Page Number;padding=2% does not work. I need to use it in a code 39 barcode with a PDF and the Switch Pitstop Configurator.

The %Page Number% variable works with a static text object, but not when used in pitstop barcode creation. Anyone know of another way?

You could use (static)text with a code39 barcode-font.
Quite simple. :D

Many thanks for that! I never even thought about changing the font of the static text.

You're welcome.
The font works fine for barcodes, but for eg a qr-code this solution won't work.
So i've created a feature-request at Enfocus for a more flexible way to use page-numbers in barcodes / qr-codes.
