Is the issue that you used lable sheets of the type Avery 5160 and that
the preconfiguration for these lables were wrong?
I think that I remember reading some issues with the label functionality
(File -> New -> Label) in an earlier version of LibreOffice that might
or might not be fixed in newer versions. What version of LibreOffice did
Do you have any specifications for the measurements of these specific
labels so I can do a quick review if there seems to be any issues there?
Note also that you can tweak the measurements under the Format tab of
the Labels-dialog. Not that you should need to if you use labels that
has a preset configuration.

I tried to do my labels for Christmas
cards using LO's mail merge. I was able to create the data base and
print without difficulty. Unfortunately, the entire third column was not
properly spaced and printed outside of the label, a couple of spaces to the left. The first two
columns were they were supposed to be. I was using standard
configuration for Avery 5160. I finally gave up created the labels
with Excel and Word.
I am not sure where to send an email to
suggest that the matter be looked into so I am sending this
information to this list with the hope the matter will be picked for
investigation. Also, although I suspect it has been suggested
before, it would be nice to be able to do a mail merge directly from
the spreadsheet without creating a database file.
