If you go to the site and create an account you can use their
online label tool.  It's fairly easy to use and allows you to save your
"projects" for future use.  I printed the result to PDF and used the PDF to
create labels as needed.  It's helpful to have access to a high end printer
(like at work) which can feed the label stock more precisely than the
inexpensive printers typically used at home.

Hi, gordon,

Thanks for the suggestion.

I just looked, and there is no Mac specific download for it.  I have the
impression that a lot of Linux/Unix software will run on the Mac, but I
don't know how to do that level of installations.

Doing it doesn't really turn me on anyway.  LO

Hi Ken,

Unsure if 'glabels' will run on your Mac but it have does templates
for the Avery 15 x 4  series.

Hi, Remy,

Or, you could just create a table of 15 rows, and do the height
adjustment for all rows at once.  <G>

Then, there's the option of using the Avery template that's available,
but I think it requires the Avery software.  I did not investigate
that option.

Or, you can do what I did.  I used a different program that had one of
the Avery labels in the list, and got it done.  <G>

You are right. The fields for user-defined layouts seem to adjust
themselves randomly (looks like a validation problem where the value
that is entered is validated before the cursor leaves the field). The
only way I was able to create something that looks like what you are
looking for is to:

1) Create an empty document.
2) Adjust the page margins to match the cutout locations of your Avery
label sheet (Format -> Page -> Page).
3) Insert a 1 row/4 column table that has no headers and no borders; if
your margins are correctly set, the table should now occupy the full
usable width of the page and each cell should be of the correct width.
4) Adjust the height of your row by right-clicking in a cell and
selecting "Size" -> Row Height. Set it to 0.67 inch.
5) Once this is done, go to the rightmost cell and insert a new row by
hitting TAB (the new row will be of the same height as the first one).
Do this until you have the correct number of rows on your page.

You may need to play with the Spacing to Content (Table -> Properties
-> Borders) of the cells to position the text inside the cells so it
stays clear of the cutout lines.

Not fantasticly user friendly but it should do the job.

I hope this helps.

Rémy Gauthier.

I cannot find a way to create a label on 8.5 X 11 page labels, where


label height is .67".  The sheet of labels is 15 rows by 4 columns.

Such a template would be compatible with the following Avery labels:
18195, 42895, 5155, 5195, 8195, 15695, 18695, 88695, 48335, 38667,
42995, 18294

Adding to this difficulty is the fact that when you try to type into


input fields, apparently random numbers simply appear.

Known problem?
