Users have an option to assign an alternate Interpretation Line Font when using ZPL to print a Code 128 Barcode. The Interpretation Line will be left justified and cannot be manually centered on the barcode.

The only option is to use the standard barcode interpretation line if automatic centering is required.

If the standard interpretation line is not acceptable a separate text field will need to be created. This will require manual positioning and entry of all content expected to be viewed including the check digit.
