Question

 How do I add symbols (like dashes) to the human readable portion of a barcode, without adding the symbol to the actual barcode?

Answer

 Check the "Character Template" option within Human Readable > Human Readable Transforms within a Barcode's Properties panel:

 

When adding a new line into the human readable, you can use the unicode character \u000D or the ASCII character \x13 but you will need to make an additional change. On the Barcode Properties, select Text Format from the menu and change the type to Paragraph:

Once this is changed, you can create as many lines as you want.
