Label headaches

By Bee

from MO

This review is from How to Format an Avery Template Built-in to Microsoft Word:

I just wasted time, ink and paper trying to figure out the labels. I used Avery 5160 but when I tried to print labels in MSWord, the labels are all misconstrued. Why can't you companies work together??? I had to spend time figuring out what a vertical pitch and a horizontal pitch is and the diagram, after I finally got it to look as close to the Avery label, didn't even print right. I was lucky to be able to use one label. This is again, companies that don't work together and do NOT make life easy for consumers. It's despicable how something so minor can take so much time. FIX IT!

    This review is from How to Format an Avery Template Built-in to Microsoft Word:

    AFTER FINALLY FINDING THE INFORMATION I WANTED, I HAD TO WORK OUT HOW TO GET A BLANK SHEET AND FIGURE OUT HOW TO ADD THE INFORMATION (DOUBLE TAB FOR 2ND AND 3RD LABELS). WHY CAN'T THE OLD MERGE FUNCTION STILL WORK? WHY MAKE THINGS MORE DIFFICULT IN ORDER TO SIMPLY MERGE INFORMATION?

    THE OLD SAYING THAT THE MORE KEYSTROKES FOR THE SIMPLEST FUNCTIONS MAKES THE TECHNICIANS HAPPIER SEEMS TO APPLY.

    Well, sort of....

    By Enthouse

    from St. Paul, MN

    This review is from How to Format an Avery Template Built-in to Microsoft Word:

    The instructions say to put text in the Address box, then select whether you want a full page of the label or a single label, and finally click "New Document". On my Word 2013, if I select "single label" the New Document button is grayed out. I can only select New Document if Full Page is chosen. My solution was to leave the address area blank, select Full Page, then click New Document. I then had a full page of empty labels that I could fill however and wherever I wanted.
