Trying to produce labels, but they don't fit the paper! I'm using the
built-in L7163 address label format.
It's a bit complicated as I don't have a printer attached - I have to make a
PDF document and print it on another machine. As "Export to PDF" just gives
a sheet with the fields names on rather than the filled-in values, I use a
PDF printer and am getting different (and wrong) PDFs from both OO and LO.
Interestingly, the results are different between LO and OO, and also between
the printers I use, so there seems to be a problem with the printer
With OO using CutePDF I get a US letter size document (8 by 11 inches),
using Bullzip I get a document 20.8 by 28.2 cm (a bit smaller than A4). The
pitches are also wrong.
With LO I get the same from both printers: a correctly sized document. But
the pitch is wrong: 9.2 by 3.6 cm instead of 9.9 by 3.8.
How on earth can I get OO and/or LO to produce my labels? It's too late for
my Xmas cards now - I've gone back to an ancient Lotus SmartSuite which
works perfectly. But won't run on Windows 7 unfortunately.
I think this will help:
That will provide a template (table format) for your labels. You might
consider ordering from Worldlabel... they are the only vendor that I
know of that provide OOo/AOO/LO templates for their products.
