Default Help with simple postnet generation

I am using the latest fusion pro, 10.1.11 on pc.

I watched the videos and tried to get the 5 digit code to use the fonts and convert to the post net bar code. I have had no luck in getting it to work, I need some help to see what I am doing wrong. I have attached a zip of the simple page with 2 text boxes to try and get it to work.

Would this be the problem? I have attached the fonts error log, it looks like the the fusion pro fonts did load?

I put in a zip code of 25865 and choose the post net rule and get the following on output (258654) and no graphic bar code.

I have installed the software and uninstalled the software a few times and get the same results. Do I have to add JavaScript to make this work? The QR codes work really well.

Is the Postnet barcode even used anymore? You sure you don't need an Intelligent Mail Barcode? Also, you would need the plus 4 for an automation barcode for the USPS.

Don is right that the POSTNET barcode is obsolete, and that Intelligent Mail is the new standard for the USPS. That said, it should still work. If you go into the FusionPro menu and select Documentation -> Tutorials, then open the Cell Phone folder, open up cellphone.pdf, and preview it, does the POSTNET barcode appear underneath the address block on the first page?

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

I figured out the problem in more searching, suitcase and a couple of fonts were the problem, once suitcase was uninstalled, and a couple fonts deleted, it now works.

I have to ask, why are you using a Postnet? Pretty sure that barcode is not used anymore by the USPS.
