Vector Format

so yes I do packaging and yes I use Barcod Pro but they dont have it for the new os so the hunt is on.
this does a good job just a few issues which I sent over to the developer
things that need to be fixed
1 no check digit produced
2 when opening the program keeping the same settings would be nice like the height, scale and other items in the preferences
3 no preview (this is a little BIG issue)
4 when creating the file and then opening it in illustrator you can see that the bars are created as strokes and not oulined paths which are very very slightly off compaired to Barcode Pro
