    Barcodes in InDesign

    Hi,
    does anyone have experience with creating and editing barcodes (mainly EAN13) directly in InDesign (CS5)? I’ve tried Teacup Barcodemaker which is the best but rather expensive and BookBarcode script which can be used free but cannot handle addons which I sometimes need... Any other suggestions? thanks...

    Barcodes in InDesign

    Better than using an exclusive program to make barcodes as the "Barcode Producer"

    Barcode express for Mac is really good, thanks for that tip Eltonking3000. In my work I use the Corel Draw barcode module, which allows me to import a vector into illustrator(from the clipboard, which I can't seem to do in BC express) and keep the number as text. This means I can change the font as suited without revisiting the BC software. Anyone know of similar softs for mac, perhaps? all the others i have tried convert to vector or bitmap.

    On the Adobe website I found a plugin/script which was really good and helps me when I need barcodes.

    Hi,

    This Barcode Maker is designed to generate only 13-digit ISBN bar code. But good for book covers.

    I am using CorelDraw, creating barcode there and exporting it as .ai. After that you can import it in Indesign or edit it in Illustrator.
