      I'd like to scan barcodes using my computer webcam. Can we get a version for Mac/PC?

      • Have an option to enter additional information between configuration steps.

        Be able to add text to specific step in configuration at the time of scan.
        Example: BARCODE , TAB, custom text as a popup , TAB , RETURN.
        This would enable the ability to populate a database for inventory. Scan a barcode and enter quantity.

        • Actually emulate a return keypress on the keyboard rather than add \n\r as text to the barcode.

          It would be good if the keyboard wedge actually emulated the return keypress when <newline> is added to the config, rather than just adding \n\r as text to the barcode.

          I've tried an actual return...

          i.e.
          (<barcode>
          )

          ...but that just adds an A to the end of the barcode.

            • Optimize speed by disabling support for symbology that are not needed at the moment

              Provide a configuration tab where users can disable symbologies that are not needed for the current task. For example, if I am scanning 1D barcodes, not supporting PDF417 / QR code could speed up the barcode decoding. this can also make use of the QCC feature to configure scanalyzer from one optimized profile to another.

                  • Scan for Windows Tablet using Tablet Camera and send data to excel or database

                    I think it would be very useful and practical if the windows tablets could scan barcodes and it send information to a database, excel spreadsheet or somewhere. After all the professional world uses more windows than mac and tablets are the next big thing regardless of operating system.

                          • have option to start at the 1st row of the next column. I would literally be the happiest person in the world

                            So in available actions you could press a button and it would automatically shift to the next column (a google sheet on a laptop for example) so you could scan lets say a unique container followed by all the items put inside it...then rinse and repeat. IT WOULD BE AMAZING.
