Allow native generation of barcodes
The new QR code capability in InDesign is very handy and speeds up workflow. Please include similar functionality for all barcode types, including those such as: EAN, PostNet, UPC-A, UPC-E, KIX, ISBN, ISSN and others. The user should simply select the barcode type, enter the relevant data, and then InDesign will create a barcode in the proper size according to the standards. Of course, if the user wants to change the size for some reason, the object could be scaled. Allow selection of foreground and background color for the barcode, including transparency as the default. This will greatly speed up workflow and eliminate additional linking to external files.
I would like this.

A barcode tool will also speed up changing to a new CC version, when you don´t have to wait for the update of the barcode plugin ...
how is this not already integrated!?!
There is already a QR code... where is barcode?
