Just got Labels & Addresses along with Art Text to go with a Primera printer that's on it's way to me.

So I am playing with it so I can hit the ground running and so far most everything is pretty easy (I have done a lot of DTP in the past) but one thing I can't figure out is how to change the color of a barcode.

I want a QR code and it's going to be on a dark background so I want it white.

I guess I could put a white box behind it but I want to know if it's possible to make it white?

To change the color of a barcode, you need to convert it to an image. To do this, add the barcode to a new document and make it as large as possible. Export to the PDF format. Then place this PDF instead of the barcode in your document. Use the Tint tool in the Inspector to change the color. If you need to crop the image, right-click on it and select Crop.

Note that non-black barcode may confuse barcode readers.
