I have an ArtPro file with a barcode. The Barcode palette shows "This barcode has been modified" underneath the barcode type. What does this mean?


The Modified flag is enabled when you transform only a part of a barcode. E.g.: when you scale the barcode only horizontally. At that moment you will also see this warning message:

"This operation will create an invalid barcode."

If you click OK in the error message, then you need to either:

  • Select the barcode and click the Modify button in the Barcode palette. This will update the barcode with the properties as shown in the palette at that moment.
  • Or remove the barcode and create a new one.

Scaling back the barcode to its original size will not remove the Modified flag.
