Dynamic Data Matrix barcode on very small label



I am trying to create a dynamic (calculated) 2D barcode on a very small label, using Adobe LiveCycle Designer.

I have specified a Paper Forms Barcode, with Data Matrix symbology, with a unit width of 0.0133in. There will be a maximum of 14 ASCII characters in this barcode, derived from an XML datsource. The problem is that I cannot shrink this design element down to the approximate size of the generated barcode - there is a lot of white space around the barcode, and I cannot move the barcode outside the limits of the form to compensate.

Is printing such a small barcode on a very small form even possible in Adobe LiveCycle Designer? The final label may be around 0.5 inch wide by 0.25 inch high, and this is the off the shelf solution provided for printing from SAP Manufacturing Execution.
