DataMatrix barcode in EntomoLabels

You can use DataMatrix barcode in your labels. The maximum capacity of a DataMatrix is defined according to the standard by:

  • the symbol size: number of rows and columns of dots
  • the data type: numeric or alphanumeric
  • in this code you can include a full, extended ASCII character set, the code also allows you to encode Arabic, Greek, Hebrew and Cyrillic characters
  • six coding schemes selected in such a way that the resulting code is as small as possible (one optimal code is selected)
  • up to 2335 alphanumeric characters, 1556 eight-bit characters or 3116 numeric characters can be encoded

Check if your printer prints accurately enough for the code reader to read a small code.

    Happy labeling !!!

EntomoLabels 7.5.01 relased

New version EntomoLabels 7.5.01 has been released !

The XML structure has been slightly changed to support border and fill colors. For this reason, templates from the previous version that had colored frames / lines should be reviewed. If you did not use colored frames / lines, you do not need to do anything.

In order to update, it is only necessary to unpack the EntomoLabels.exe program into the folder.

This is the last version before the season. Another ones can be expected in autumn. I will try to show the program’s possibilities in short films that I will record. I think it will be more readable than reading the user manual.

Added / changed functionality:
– colorpicker for easy color selection

— tooltips for help

– text color

outline color and fill rectangles (color or transparent)
colorpicker for easy color selection, text color
new barcode: Code39, Code128

improved support for notebooks
