Barcode Background

Post by jplv » Tue Jul 24, 2018 10:02 pm

I have a label that has a yellowish background on it. When I print it in Nicelabel 6 the barcode prints with a transparent background so the yellow shows through. However, the same label converted to Nicelabel 2017 seems to print barcodes with a white background, which looks bad with this yellowish label. Is there a way to control this somewhere and prevent it from using a white background?

I've tried both "Use printer element if supported" and "Always print as graphics" and both yield the same result.

Thank you for being a valued member of the NiceLabel community. The background of barcodes in 2017 are still set to be transparent and has not changed since v6. The only color that can be changed is the foreground. We would have to test this further to determine a resolution. Please email us at to start a new support ticket. I will also be following up with you via private message.

We hope to hear from you soon.
