Note that Onbarcode Word EAN-8 Generator will automatically generate a EAN-8 image with a minimum Image Width when a fixed X is set. In this case, there are two situations:

1. If you set a image width value, which is less than the minimum image width, the generated image width will be the minimum Image Width. When it occurs, see Word EAN-8 Bar Width Setting - Minimum X and Word EAN-8 Image Width Setting - Fixed W.

2. If you set a image width value, which is more than the minimum image width, Word Add-in will fill the difference with left and right margins generated automatically.

Word EAN-8 Bar Height Setting

The height of EAN-8 barcode image is made up by the width of the following five parts:

Property Name Property Description Property Range
Bar Height The height of the bars in EAN-8 Float
Text Margin The width of the space between barcode and text Float
Text Height The height of text font below the bars and spaces -
Top Margin Width The height of the top margin Float
Bottom Margin Width The height of the bottom margin Float


The height of barcode image varies from the changing of the height of the text when font size and style changed. However, the image height should be 5 mm or 15% of the image width. Word EAN-8 can automatically make proper correction for your EAN-8 to compatible with GS1 specification.
