The Business card&  label templates use frames (instead of a table). If
you were lucky you rememeberd to select 'syncronize' when you created it
so that you can easily sync the rest of the cards/label. Anyway, to
modify, I highly recommend that you keep a backup of your original, and
then: 'View|Text boundries'. You'll then be able to see the frame
outlines. Right-click on the frame boarder and select 'Frame|Options'
untick the Protect items 'Position' and 'Size'. You can then modify the
frame as you wish by using the 'Type' tab, or exiting the Frame function
and then move/resize the frame with the mouse. When finished, don't
forget to go back and retick the Protect items 'Position' and 'Size' so
that you lock the frames back down.

However, IMO it's easier just to create a new one, adjust the sizes that
you need, and then copy the data from the first frame over to the new one.

Of course I synchronize as otherwise a sheet of 10 cards is difficult to 
produce. My problem is actually that the - often difficult - process of 
aligning the sheet with the pre-formatted paper in the printer is not 
easy with LO. I only want to use the original view where the dimensions 
are given. I cannot imagine that's so difficult.I have "View|Text 
boundaries" always on as I want to see the boundaries but if you want to 
adapt that and examine the result it takes a lot of paper and ink: I 
would like to see only the outline to edit as in many label programs is 
But it is only a minor nuisance and I have it solved.
Thanks anyway for the input,

Joep, I fully agree. I just don't have a better answer. Might be a good
time to put in a bug report and see if someone has exerience with the UI
and that wizard. I seem to recall discussion regarding this over on the
old OOo list(s). I'll look them up later to see if I can find any added
