Importing ConnectCode Barcode Fonts

Barcode & Label supports the import of all the barcode fonts available in ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts. This tutorial shows you how to import the fonts and use them to create barcode labels for your business. Please note that Windows 8.1/10 is required for importing barcode fonts.

1. First, make sure you have installed ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts. A free trial of the barcode fonts is also available if you want to test out the fonts with the label app.

2. Launch Windows Explorer and browse to the ConnectCode Barcode Software and Fonts folder. By default, the software is installed in the following location :

C:\Program Files\ConnectCode (or C:\Program Files\ConnectCodeTrial)

3. Copy all the True Type (*.ttf) fonts in this folder and place them in a subfolder (e.g. "fonts" folder) on your Windows® Desktop.



4. Launch Barcode & Label and open the Application Settings Flyout by clicking or tapping on the App Settings button from the bottom menu.



5. Click or tapped on the Import button in Application Settings. Navigate to the "fonts" folder that you have created on your Desktop, select “Choose this folder” and click on Ok.

6. After importing the barcode fonts, create a Barcode object and check that the different barcodes are now available for selection. The user interface for barcode generation is similar to the ConnectCode Barcode Fonts Encoder.
