However, Essential DocIO does not have support to create or edit macro commands in the macro-enabled documents.

Different sizes for the bar code symbol are available and can be chosen manually or according to the input. Data Matrix bar codes can be directly drawn in PDF or converted to an image.

Essential PDF Viewer

  • Improved Text Rendering - Text rendering has been greatly improved. Several improvements have been made to avoid text overlap and other spacing issues.
