Can I print labels from DOS containing barcodes and text descriptions ?

The text can be printed using a standard Windows font (usually the font chosen on the Printfil configuration dialog).

To print barcodes you can use a Windows font for barcodes (you can find some or them also at https://www.printfil.com/eextra.htm ).

By using a font for barcodes, the DOS application can print only the textual code (for example "1234567890") while the printed job will show the bars.

You can see an example of this technique in the ascii file: https://www.printfil.com/download/testpf.txt , which produces the job at: https://www.printfil.com/download/testpf1.pdf

If you want to look inside the txt file without having an HEX editor, you can see its dump here: https://www.printfil.com/download/testpf3.pdf

You may also want to have a look at the video demonstrating how to do that, step by step: https://www.printfil.com/article/print-barcodes.htm
