How to vary the color of a Meadows Variable Bar Code (Variable Barcode)

To vary the color of a Variable Bar Code (Variable Barcode), use a DesignMerge Link Rule to apply various Character Styles (or Character Style Sheets) based on the conditions that you specify in the Rule.

 

When setting up Character Styles for Variable Bar Codes, for best results, set up these Styles to specify only the Color and not any other character formats such as Font or Size. 

 

For an example of a document that uses Link Rules, see Tutorial #1b (Rules) in the DesignMerge Tutorial Manual, available in PDF format in the DesignMerge Product folder on your system.

 

For details about DesignMerge Rules, see the Rules Module manual in the DesignMerge Product folder.

 

For information about setting up Character Style Sheets, see your page layout application's documentation.
