Bug fixes:

Changes to be aware of in Endicia for Mac:

  • The USPS is requiring a wider Delivery Confirmation barcode on our labels so that our customers can qualify for the new Priority Mail Commercial Base Pricing (an average savings of 3.5% compared to what you’d pay if we used the old narrower barcode). The new barcode is over 3.7” wide whereas the old one was about 2.6”.

Because of this, the elements of the label no longer all fit within the space of a DYMO 99019 1-part label so we have currently disabled printing Priority Mail on the 99019 label type until we can get approved on a new label design, we have some ideas and are working on it.

Unfortunately we were not able to have a solution ready for the price change, we sincerely apologize for the lack of notice and inconvenience this may cause.

  • Related to the above, the Delivery Confirmation barcode will now print in the middle panel on the DYMO 30387 3-Part labels so that it will fit.
  • This will be the last Endicia for Mac release to support Mac OS X 10.2.8, the next release will require Mac OS X 10.3.9 or greater. Really.
