Need template for Avery 05259 label sheet

Postby Renegade » Tue Feb 11, 2020 5:22 am

I have Avery address label sheets that are not in the dialogue box drop down for Open Office Avery label sheets.

Specifically, I have 05259.

Also, the template does not always line up with the actual sheet. Where I position an address in the template will print a couple of lines higher or lower on the sheet, so the top or bottom of the address is sometimes printed on the label above or below.

Any fixes? I've updated Open Office, but it didn't solve the problem, and no new Avery templates were added.

Welcome to the Forums.
If the Avery labels you have are not in the drop down list/dialogue, then the issuance of those labels is since that list was created.
You might try LibreOffice, as it is updated more frequently than OpenOffice is.

Check OpenOffice and printer are both using the same size page/paper. One may be using letter, the other A4.

Try using the Avery 5159 template. A Google search for "Avery 5259" found Avery's download page for 5259 templates which says "Template Compatibility: 5159". LO has the same template.

Create your own template - it's very easy.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Thank you for your replies. I am just going to buy labels that I know are in the drop down list. That makes it easy.

The only difference between Avery 5159 and Avery 5259 is the quantity of sheets in the package. Avery 5159 is a box of 1400 labels. Avery 5259 is a pack of 350 labels. Individual sheets of labels are the same size and layout.
