Well, I would say that's a slight exaggeration. The set up of the user
sheet is 'handicapped' rather than broken, certainly degraded from what
I knew in the past.

But I can set up label content and print them out on my set of label
sheets. Once set up, it saves and sticks so it is usable but not
friendly and should be fixed.  :-)

I'm using LO  in UbuntuStudio 16.04.2 LTS

I never used to have a problem setting up labels on a custom brand of A4
sized label sheet. But in the current version I'm using, when I come to
setting up a custom label, the standard user sheet size is 10.00 x 10.00
cms. Trying to reset that to A4 size (21.00cm x 29.7 cm) also gets me
funny numbers not exactly random but either 10.00 x 10.00 or 56.00 x
56.00. There is no option for A4 or any other standard sheet size.

After much fiddling, I got it set up by :

1. setting page dimensions to 21.00 and 29.70 by using the spinners

2. setting the label width to 7.00 by putting the cursor in the
horizontal pitch box and spinning the number down from the default of
10.00 to 7.00 - this takes the label width box down in parallel

3. setting the label width to 4.20 by putting the cursor in the vertical
pitch box and spinning the number down from the default of 10.00 to 4.20
- this takes the label height box down in parallel

4. setting up 3 columns
5. setting up 7 rows
6. leaving left margin and top margin at the default of 0.00

If I try to set columns before setting up label width, the page size
changes to multiples of the column width - bringing the columns back
down to 1 doesn't take the paper width back to the carefully set value.

In steps 2 and 3, if I put the cursor directly in the width/height
boxes, this did not bring down the corresponding pitch boxes but they
could be brought down afterwards without difficulty other than the time
it takes.

Using the spinners is a bit like watching paint dry but once the cursor
is in the field, you can use the up / down arrows instead of the mouse.
Don't try a short cut of page up/ page down because that just resets the
page to 10.00 x 10.00 or 56.00 x 56.00

I was able to set my label user values like this and to save them

I cannot find a way to create a label on 8.5 X 11 page labels, where the
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 the
input fields, apparently random numbers simply appear.

Known problem?
