How does "synchronize" work in labels

Postby ntambomvu » Sun May 17, 2020 7:51 pm

Hello Chaps ,
(this is an addon to my earlier post about changing the label sizes.)

One of the respondents suggested that instead of copy and past into all the labels i use the "synchronize" option.
Would someone please give me the keystrokes needed to create a new label sheet which has a graphic on the label?
My problem is that after I have entered to graphic into the top left label how do I get writer to copy that graphic onto all the other
lables on that sheet
many thanks

In the dialog which creates a new label, there is an option on the last tab. If you check this option, the first label is editable, the others are linked to the first and a toolbar lets you sync.

If you need further clarification labels have an extensive section in Chapter 11 - Using Mail Merge in the Writer User Guide.

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.

For inserting images it is best to anchor them "as character". But also possible "to character" or "to paragraph". Do not anchor "to page".
For further instructions upload a sample file.
