So I looked at the configuration in LibreOffice 4.0.6 and LibreOffice 4.2 beta-version and the configuration seems to be correct. I even compared it to the result that I get in Word 2013 for the same label (sorry for not thinking about doing that earlier). So before I put anymore time into this it would be good to know what version of LibreOffice you used when you created the labels?

I think the configuration in the wizard may be wrong. The Avery 5160 has 30 labels on a 8.5" x 11" sheet each measuring 1" x 2 5/8". It is probably one of the most common labels used so I am surprised the issue hasn't previously been raised. As I indicated in my email, I didn't have any problem when I switched to Word so I am reasonably confident the issue is not related to my printer.
