QR-Code in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Will Affinity Designer have a QR-Code generator (at some moment in time)?

 

InDesign & Swift Publisher 4 - just naming those two - have such a feature.

I would prefer to work only with Affinity Designer but alas, no QR-Code generator is present.

Maybe the Devs will consider this for a future release?

I agree with mdb, QR generators go round by the dozen, in PDF and EPS without costs. I like the KISS principle of both Designer and Photo, so I hope they are not into this "We-Are-The-Photoshop-Monster-And-Can-Do-Anything-We-Want" mode. Who wants video editing in a pixel software?

I think it is now a design element that has to be catered for. I lose count of how often someone wants a QR on a flyer or calling card,

Much rather do this in Designer than to have to go online and generate a raster QR download it and check it on my phone, then import it into my document.

Both Corel Draw and InDesign let you combine with a small (less than 30%) logo and other features such as rounded blocks and joined blocks.

UPC, EAN, POSTNET, Code 39? Where should one draw the line, if you’ll excuse the pun??

For URC I'm sure there is a barcode font.

All of these could be solved of there was scripting support.

goqr.me has a free api for developers to generate QR Code on their applications... can this be implemented on Affinity Publisher or Designer, either way is good with me. With Affinity Publisher I just open Publisher, and I can switch to Designer persona to generate the QR Code.

For goqr.me it could be done and reused in a similar manner like the Stock image panel request.
