Barcode data without the barcode recreation

Scanning of QR codes into PDF/Word documents.

I would like the scanned barcode data recorded but not the large image that accompanies it.

Currently this small form will only fit three barcodes to a page. If we could turn off the QR recreation we could save dozens of pages off a report (and lower the file size), make the data usable for our customers, and I'm sure it would help with the performance of our Android tablets that can take a few minutes to prep the data before submitting.

    Hi Nathan,

    Thanks for this request.   Showing barcode images is actually just an option on the document -- you can turn it off at any time.

    Check out this article: https://support.prontoforms.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003144123-V2-Standard-layout-options-for-PDF-Word-HTML-documents   and you can find the option under "Answer format."

    Thank you very much, Danielle! Job done.

    I shall let support know there is an option (they asked me to post here).

    Kind regards

    Perfect!  I'm glad this resolves it for you.   Sorry for the original misinformation -- there are a lot of little settings in the product and it's certainly easy enough for someone to forget that the more uncommonly used ones (like this) do in fact exist!
