Good morning:

(Nice Farm Site Don) I do not know what ya'all mean by 'table' unless you are saying that I might get the "name address" data from a database. I am not. I am creating a shipping label to put on large (9 x 12) envelopes for my security system proposals. I am using equivalent to Avery 5164 labels (6 on a page). I fill them out manually on a typewriter.

My question related to the concept of "obvious" and "efficiency", meaning most label creation would be:
1. Design label (lines, test colors, etc.)
2. Copy to other label locations on the sheet
3. Print Labels

So having a command that would take the label that you just created and populate the other label locations on the sheet seemed to be the next step, and I could not find the option.

Problem: In label design, the text and the drawing are separate objects, so selecting the top left label buy highlighting the upper left to lower right the, rt cl copy, put cursor in upper right box, upper right corner, put the lower half of my original label (drawing only, no text) below the original and nothing in the upper right box.

It just seems that a "populate other empty labels on this sheet with original" would make sense.

Hi John,

If you are using the table based templates, simply copy and paste.

With the recent messages re: the label function, I created a shipping label. Worked very nicely. Is there a feature to populate the rest of the labels on a sheet (on the screen), from the top left one, so they are all the same?
