Two questions please.

[1] I am using Avery A4 L7161 adhesive labels and have opened using the new>label option which 
gives me the grid in which to type the text.  Having selected font and size I find the print is too 
close to the edge of the label.  How may I adjust the margin between the first line of text and the

I don't know how easily that is done with LO's Labels function, which is optimized for merging 
addresses from a database.  Probably someone who uses labels a lot can chime in on that, but I 
would probably be inclined to just format a page with margins of 7.2mm (L/R) and 8.8mm(T/B) and 
then make a 3col x 6 row table full-width (66.0mm columns), with row heights 46.5mm.  That would 
give you easy access to all labels as table cells, so you could just copy-and-paste quickly.
