PRO user here, just purchased the application and i'm very happy with it!

I notice you have the option to add a barcode QR on the PDF from inside the app.

I clicked on instert QR Code but on properties i cannot find where i put the value upon scan.

What i want is very simple, once the QR is scanned from the phone just a text displayed "Hello 123" for example (no web page link, no email address, just plain text to copy from iphone upon prompt)

can you guide me ?

Greetings @Vassilis Contogeorgos

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

The closest setup that will display Hello 123 when you scan the QR code using phone's camera is by running a script. 
I made a screen recording so you could see the workflow:

Here's the screenshot of the phone when scanning the QR code:


Kind regards,

ok this is my fault, i spoke out of excitement without testing it.

Weird it is not working. I get the default value "1234567890"


Cannot upload images and the testing video so i'm giving you dropbox links. please check!
