Container Tags Print Garbage Instead of the Barcode

Issue: Printing Container Tags to PDF prints the Barcode perfect, but all of the other Text lines “sometimes” print gibberish.

Reason: An Arial Font Conflict has occurred.

  1. With your database open, pull down the Edit menu to Label
  2. Browse to the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0\iPresort\Reports\TRAYTAGC.LBX, and open this file
  3. Click once on the Top Text Box line, select Format > Font. You will notice that the “Arial” font is a “Printer” font and NOT a TrueType Font. This occurred because the User installed new Open Type Library fonts that “replaced” the Standard Microsoft “TrueType” fonts. Thus, the Font Conflict.

Resolution: Edit the Container Tag Template and change ALL “Arial” fonts (this is all boxes in header and detail with the exception of the Barcode itself) to a “TrueType” font, like Franklin or Calibri, or any like “TrueType” font.

Resolution (Preferred): Install the Microsoft True Type – Arial Font Family.
