Installing the Bar Code Font
the Bar Code Font
statements and invoices are displaying a string of numbers instead
of the bar code. How do I install the bar code font?
Have you ever
printed out your statements/invoices and noticed that the bar code is
not showing at the top of the page. In place of the bar code, a string
of letters and numbers display? This is a common problem for some Rapattoni
Magic users, but it can be easily corrected by adding a few additional
fonts to your computer. Follow these steps to install the proper fonts:
- First you must uninstall the previously
installed fonts. Click on the Start button (lower left hand corner).
Next, click on Settings and then Control Panel.
NOTE: If you are using Windows XP, you will click on Start and then
- Double click on the Fonts icon.
- Locate and delete the following three fonts
(if they exist): 3 of 9 Barcode, OCR A Extended, and USPS Barcode.
- Now click on File and then Install New
- In the box labeled “Drive”, choose the
drive letter that Rapattoni is mapped to.
- In the Folders box, navigate to the following
folder: Rap\Ver8\install\client\fonts. If you are on Rapattoni Magic
Version 7, you will use the following path: Rap\Ver7\install\client\fonts
- After you find the above mentioned fonts
folder, the “List of Fonts” folder should auto-populate with the following
3 fonts (same as the original deleted fonts): 3 of 9 Barcode, OCR A
Extended, and USPS Barcode.
- Click on the Select All button, and then
click on OK.
now try to run your statements/invoices again and make sure the bar code
is printing properly. If you are still having problems with this process,
please feel free to contact Rapattoni Software Support.
