BarcodeMaker Quick start guide

Here’s how to make a barcode:

  1. Install the plug-ins. You'll get both BarcodeMaker and PatternMaker. The PatternMaker palette is where you create barcodes.
  2. Launch InDesign and open a document
  3. Select a frame. A frame must be selected to be able to apply a barcode.
  4. Open the PatternMaker palette if it's not open already (Window > PatternMaker).
