Hello John,

re: [2] same label for all labels on page with other than the default
formatting applied to all labels

#1 File > New > Labels
#2 Labels dialog, Labels tab --
  -- Label text field : enter desired label text
  -- Brand: Avery A4, Type: L7161 Address
#3 Click "New Document" button, label text field is repeated for all labels
on page
#4 Right-click in text of first label, select Styles > Edit Style...
#5 modify style as desired and click "Apply" button

All labels now have the same style applied to the text.

Is that what you are trying to do?

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
actual label edge.  I think the word is kerning and I need to move the text
a fraction of the line down on the paper?

On the Labels Format tab, can you not just increase the Top margin by,
say, a millimeter?
[BTW: I don't think the word you want is kerning, which refers to a
spacing relationship between characters.]

[2] Once I have typed one label and edited it to suit, is there a quick
way to copy the one label to all the labels on the the whole sheet?

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.
