2. Symbologies: This section controls what symbologies are recognized by the reader.

3. Data Formatting -> Prefix/Suffix
Used to add simple prefix and/or suffix do the scanned data.

Simple on-off toggles (On by default)

Setting “Suffix Enable” to “Off” will turn off the default CR when scanning in keyboard mode.

To define a prefix and/or suffix, click on the desired Editor button and enter in the desired text. Use the Insert ASCII or Insert Keypress to add special characters to the prefix/suffix.

4. Advanced formatting

Data Formatting Settings:
Data Format Required – Keep Prefix/Suffix – Not supported
Data Formatter Off – Turns off Data Formatter rules
Data Formatter On – Not Required – Keep Prefix/Suffix: Turns on Data Formatter rules
The Data Formatter exposes many advanced features to customize the output of the scanner. It is a very powerful tool and we will only cover a few use cases here.

Please note that the prefix/suffix is always added after the Data Formatter rules have been applied.

Clicking on Editor opens up Data Formatter builder. From here you can pick from a number of Commands and Sub-Commands to build up a set of rules to format the output data. Once your set of rules have been created, click Finish to save the rules.
SAMPLE RULE 1: Trim Right 5 Characters

This simple one-command script will trim the last 5 characters from the scanned data. From the point shown above, click Add/Update then Finish to set up this rule.
SAMPLE RULE 2: Trim Left 4 Characters

First, add a rule to move the pointer to the start of the read in data.

Then move the pointer forward 4 characters.

Then send everything else in the buffer.

This is how the final Command Sequence should look.
