Printing Labels

Postby MDEFORTUNA » Thu Aug 10, 2017 4:05 pm

I have a mail merge application using Base to print labels. Works great except when I print. It prints 1 page of labels and 1 blank page. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Are you mail merging into a Writer file? How many pages of labels are there?

Yes, into a Writer file. 300+ pages.

And everything looks correct in the Writer file? Have you tried a different printer, or a pdf printer?

Is the Page format set to LEFT or RIGHT so that a blank page is being added?

Do you have a paragraph return or manual new page which is causing a new, empty page to be printed? View > Non printing character's to see what is happening.

Do your labels extend beyond the bottom page margin? Page size? causing the spill?

Do you have a page format (eg Letter) which is larger than the paper in the printer (eg A4). Do some experiments to be certain you have a small gap at the bottom of your page between your last label and the margin.

What happens when you look at it in Page Preview?

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the up to date Writer guide for information. Click the Help button on a pop-up window for extensive help on that function.

Try this suggestion when extra page is printed from Mail Merge.
