I want to print a barcode label:
1 X 2.5 linear/human readable-text on top
need font at 40, this does not give me a large enough barcode and will not center in the 2.5 inch label.
In most of the cases, for label printing you have to check the layout and the print preferences. There are also settings in the Print Preferences window. Disable any auto-fit preferences and choose the layout correctly because any setting will change the aspect of the printing, if it's not configured correctly.
I recommend you download the user guide of the application to read more about the print procedure: https://www.graphicproducts.com/media/69443/labelforge-user-guide.pdf
