I have found that, at least with 8160 labels, LO works whereas AOO does not. I realize that's not your issue, but at least *one* of the label forms seems to work better than with LO than with AOO giving me the impression that the LO developers have been a little more proactive in chasing down label issues than the AOO developers.

I've often found that, with labels, I sometimes have to make small adjustments. For example, I've sometimes inserted a small 8 point blank paragraph at the top of a cell to move the actual address down a smidgen. I sometimes do this in the cells themselves or in the "Label text" dialog box under <File> <New> <Labels> when I'm doing a merge from a database. I've also been known to insert a space or two before each line in the address form, just to move it in from the left margin a bit as so: (I realize the spaces won't show up in an email so I've typed in "<sp>" to represent blank spaces that I insert with the space bar.)

<sp><sp><2014.Sheet1.0.First name> <2014.Sheet1.0.Last name>
<sp><sp><2014.Sheet1.0.City>, <2014.Sheet1.0.State>  <2014.Sheet1.0.Zip>

I realize these solutions are a bit of a cobble, but when you have to get the job done, you just do what you have to do and worry about bug reports later. My problem is that I only do this about once a year (for Christmas cards) and lose interest in the issues once I'm done.

vertically, lower on the page than correct.

Labels print fine on Avery 8160.

No adjustments of any kind to the template was made.


FWFW, it doesn't work in the latest version of Open Office, either.  :-(
