Size difference EAN13 .eps and .pdf files linked in Adobe Illustrator

Diet 1 year ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 3 months ago 2

When using an EAN13 barcode saved as .eps in Adobe Illustrator, I noticed a slight difference in size after embedding that barcode file.

I sometimes place a white rectangle above the barcode (for additional codes) and after embedding the barcode is slightly larger. This problem does not occur when using barcodes saved as .pdf.

Note: The embedded and linked barcode size for both .eps and .pdf formats are also slightly different to the size in the preview window of the Barcode application.

Under review

Thanks for heads-up, we'll have a look into that.


Try the latest 2.0.1, it should work much better there: https://boxshot.com/2020/10/17/barcode-2-0-1.html
