You can type and edit text in the Barcode Data edit box. Note that not all symbols are supported. If the selected barcode type supports multi-line text, press Opt-Return to type text in a new line.

To insert the contact information into the Barcode Data edit box, click the Insert Card Details As pop-up menu and select the format: plain text or vCard. The program inserts the data contained in text fields added in the card design. For example, to have a telephone number added, you should place the Phone text field in the document.

The "Show human-readable text" option is available for the Code 128 barcode.
