The new ChkBarcode version 1.2.10894 is now available. The new release of the barcode verification system includes the following new features:

  • New command line argument --qz_extra_mm for the definition of additional quiet zone requirements
  • New setting in the GUI: Preferences > Barcodes > Add to quiet zones
  • New command line argument --no-warning=<w1>,[<w2>]
  • UPC-A cleartext for EAN13 codes which are also valid UPC-A
  • Legend extended by row QZones for quiet zones
  • Grades A, B, … renamed to A4, B3, …
  • Various bug fixes

ChkBarcode checks quickly and securely all barcodes directly in your ready-to-print PDFs. The verification software ChkBarcode finds 1D and 2D barcodes for you, determines the type, reads the contents and measures the quite zone, checks the dimensions, measures the barcode elements and determines the bar width reduction (BWR). Then it depends on your requirements. With ChkBarcode, you create a QS report and use the results to control your workflow.

Applications of ChkBarcode are among others: packaging, folding boxes, blister cards, brochures and commercials.

ChkBarcode is available as a 64-bit version for Windows and Mac OS X. Both versions are based on the leading PDF technology of the Adobe® PDF Library™. Try ChkBarcode 1.2 now: free trial version at
