[Solved] Avery label templates

Postby dinosaur8642 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:23 pm

In the past, various Avery templates were listed when I wanted to print address labels. Now I don't see the Avery templates listed. Is this intentional? I guess I'll need to download a template. Is that process listed in detail somewhere?

Try /File /New /Labels and see if your label type is listed - select Avery Labels from the Brand dropdown and the label types from the Type dropdown.

Selecting Avery letter size gave me what I wanted. I hadn't looked adequately at the four Avery* choices. Thank you!

Oh my God, it is so frustrating. There are a 101 templates but not the one I want, even though it's a common one!

I typically use 2x2 address labels on A4 in landscape, i.e. Avery J8169 or L7169 but for the life of me I can't find a portrait equivalent in the list of templates!

When I try to find a downloadable one at the templates.openoffice.org subdomain but searches under any relevant terms produce absolutely no results.

Any ideas? :knock:

The J8169 seems to be available in the built-in label formats. Open a new label document in Writer - File | New | Labels, go to the Labels tab and select Avery A4 brand, open the Type dropdown list and scroll down a little.

I found J8169 in the list of templates; it is giving me an A4 sheet, portrait, with two large mailing labels on each sheet. If I use /Format /Page, and set the orientation the other way, I get 4 mailing labels on a landscape A4.

I suggest that you change the setting for Page orientation - ignore whether it thinks it is portrait or horizontal, and try a printout on plain paper until you get what you want, so as not to waste your label stock.

My Libreoffice 6.2.8 has a PORTRAIT orientation 2x2 label in the Zweckform group.
Try the LibreOffice (at least a portable version).

It's also in OpenOffice 4.1.7.

Thank you one and all for your fast and helpful responses, and from different angles! :D

The thing that worked for me was Zizi's suggestion to check the Avery Zweckform list of formats. I didn't have to use LibreOffice either, it's in OO! :bravo:

Brilliant forum, if this is anything to go by.
