Tip : Printing Barcodes on the Rhino 4200

The Rhino 4200 printer can generate Code 39 and Code 128 barcodes. Note: Barcodes cannot be printed on 6mm (1/4�) labels. The barcode prints horizontally along the label. You can choose to print the barcode text in small print either below or above the barcode. Optionally, you can add text before and after the barcode and serialize barcodes.

The barcode text appears on the label in the display just like any other text. If the cursor is positioned within the barcode text, the type of barcode and the position of the barcode text are displayed in the caption bar.

To add a barcode

1 Do one of the following:

• To add a Code 39 barcode, press the CODE128/CODE39 button

• To add a Code 128 barcode, press + and the CODE128/CODE39 button OK

2 Enter the text for the barcode within the barcode on the display and press OK.

3 Select whether or not to show the barcode text and press OK.

4 If necessary, select the location for the barcode text and press OK. The barcode appears as text in the display.
