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.
