Solution(s):

These issues may be experienced because all Code 128 and ITF fonts use extended ASCII characters that do not work the same on all operating systems, applications and language settings other than ISO Latin 1. The main problem with Mac is that it uses the Roman character set and Windows and Linux use ISO Latin 1.

Provided that the barcode is formatted properly to the font with IDAutomation’s Font Encoders, the problem is occurring if empty boxes are visible in the barcode.

EXAMPLE:

This issue is resolved by using IDAutomation’s Universal Barcode Font Advantage™, which supports linear barcodes as a single font on multiple operating systems, languages and locales.
