I am considering the purchase of "Barcode." Looking through the online information, I have a few questions.
I need to generate EPS files with coupon barcodes (GS1 DataBar format with various add-on values). It seems the app can handle that.
One very important feature I need is automation. My current workflow involved importing a spreadsheet of values into FileMaker Pro. Filemaker validates the information and then, via a script, sends the data to my current barcode software. This system allows me to batch generate codes. Batch/automation is important because I do anywhere from 5 to 50 barcodes at a time. It also allows me to encode distinctive filenames for each code to match up to items in a print layout.
I see that barcode has some automation functionality, but it looks like it is limited to entering data via "Terminal." Maybe I am misunderstanding.
Bottom line - can Barcode handle anything like my current automation workflow? I am guessing my system uses AppleScript for this, but I am open to other methods. I prefer to continue to run my data through Filemaker for validation (having everything saved in a single database is also good for archival purposes) but would consider other options.
Thanks in advance.
