qScan “Item Not Found” Message

When scanning barcodes of items with shorter-length SKUs, you may receive the message “Item Not Found” for items that are actually in your inventory file.

This is caused by Apple iOS treating double spaces as a shortcut to insert a period (like at the end of a sentence).

Here is an example of the message…
