Try the template page for the North American DVD, as well as looking at
the Template Center that LO has.
In the NA-DVD page, there are a few label templates here that use with
OOo years ago, when I used it instead of MSO. There use to be an EXE
file that added a "special" template manager to the Windows OOo, along
with more templates, but I do not know if it ever worked with OOo 3.0.0.
When I stated about using a .doc template, that is what is easiest to
find. Having places, like WordLabel, having .odt templates are getting
easier to find. I hate sites that give you only .docx templates. That
is not the best type of site to use.
The thing I tend to do is save working files of label that work for the
size/shape needs I had [back when I was doing them more]. Then I would
just edit the labels to the new design.
Having the option to do the New/Label is good, but you really need to
know pretty EXACT dimensions for the margins of the paper, as well as
the label size. THEN, you have to worry about your printer's print
margins. I have 3 working printers within arm's reach and I would not
like to try to create all my needed labels with the New/Labels option.
Actually, I tend to stick with Avery templates, if I can get then.
To be honest, if you go and do a search for purchasing labels for your
size, the package for those labels generally keep an up-to-date idea
where you can get a template for your label or paper type. I have some
"tent cards" that have preprinted backgrounds and the company has
specific templates for each and every paper style and decoration.
Finding a site that has your specific label paper needs should also have
where to get the needed template for those labels.
To be honest, if you can search on a company's specific label sheet
number, it would be easier. Every one of my packages of labels have a
"compare to Avery" reference number. So it is easy to search Google for
sites that might have templates for these labels, other than Avery
itself. If the label sheets are still in production, then there should
be a ready made template for it.

Could you say a little more. Where do I find such templates?

None of that is necessary with the table style templates.

The Labels formatting seems utterly Kaput! No resemblance between what
the formatting specifications are and what appears. I am on Windows 7
and and have LO 3.5.0rc3.
The labels in what? What are you using to format them? What part of
LO are you using? With more specific information, someone might be able
to help you.
