you might also want to look at creating your label template(s) with a
table, rather than the curious frame based system used currently by
LibreOffice. It's what I do and it is very successful. I find that I have
more accurate control over the layout with this method.

Peter, how do you control vertical height of the table frames?

I just had difficulties creating labels myself. Very laborious for me using
frames and sections. I tried tables shortly after starting the
frame/section method but just couldn't find any way to specify the height
of individual cells in the tables so abandoned it and went back to frames
and sections.

I'm not sure that I follow your question. I previously said that I use tables, *rather* than frames for labelling purposes, so your conjunction of tables and frames does not compute. :-)

Obviously cell height gives the control of individual table cells so as long as the top margin is set correctly everything else follows. (unless you're a fellow Englishman who prefers something a little more sophisticated than the metric measuring system, then you might have to indulge in a little sleight of hand to achieve accuracy.)

If Avery label stock is your starting point I have a variety of templates that I'm happy to share.
