Create Data Matrix Code

 

To add a Data Matrix entity to your marking layout you can select Data Matrix from the ribbon menu or drag it onto your layout from the Entity Toolbox.

Once you have selected Data Matrix a new entity is created and placed in the center of the printing area.

You can edit the information encoded in the Data Matrix entity by double clicking the entity to open the text editor. The Text Editor for Data Matrix codes works much like the standard Text Editor. You may use Static Text or the Wild Card selections to create Dynamic data. As you generate the desired format the preview pane will show you the text as it will be encoded into the Data Matrix.

Once you have created the desired data string you can click Accept and the Data Matrix entity will be updated with the new data. You can hold your mouse over the Data Matrix entity to see the data that is encrypted in the code.
