# Highlights

# POSTNET Barcodes

tilia Griffin further broadens third party device support by adding POSTNET to the list of supported barcode formats for tight integration with Summa cutters. POSTNET barcodes can easily be added to any artwork or layout.

# How-To

  1. In either layout or artwork view, click on the marks icon in the toolbar, and select Barcode > POSTNET
  2. In the Marks palette, select the POSTNET mark and set the values for each mark parameter
    • Location is set via Smart Placement. Use the 9-point selector to change which point on the mark (small square) is aligned to which point of the artwork or layout (large square). Use the 'X' and 'Y' values to define offsets from these anchor points with positive values moving the mark right and up respectively. You can also change the rotation of the mark by selecting the 'R' dropdown.
    • Optionally specify the mark name and PDF layer name. When specified the mark will be placed in a PDF layer of the same name during printing and cutting export
    • Set the fill color for the barcode. By default this will be black.
    • Enter the data for the barcode, optionally using Smart Keywords
