Meadows Publishing Systems (Booth 439) announce the release of its free 2D Bar Code Module for Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud, with a completely free license option for producing QR Codes. This release is an update to a previous version of the software, which supported Adobe InDesign CS5 and CS6. The software module is designed to generate QR Code, Data Matrix, and PDF417 two-dimensional bar codes directly in any Adobe InDesign document. The module has also been integrated with the Meadows DesignMerge and AutoPrice software packages to support fully variable, multi-up 2D bar codes that can be driven by any database.
Using this new plug-in module, 2D bar codes can be created inside of an InDesign frame, and the sizing and positioning of the codes is handled automatically. There are also several built-in templates for popular QR Code formats such as the vCard format, which has been utilized extensively in business card and other applications. When integrated with DesignMerge, Meadows module customers are producing thousands of data-driven codes in minutes.
