Address label template Question

Postby bunks12 » Fri Nov 21, 2014 5:34 pm

I downloaded a template for Avery 5160 address labels (30 per page). I was wondering if there is a better or easier way to fill in all 30 labels rather using the copy and paste function?

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

If you use the built-in labels feature (File > New > Labels ...) you have the option to "sync" all labels on the page to the content in the first label (top left).

However, the built-in labels can be somewhat fiddly; a template based on a simple table, which is most likely what you have, is often simpler to work with.

If all the labels are identical, copy/paste is not so bad; it shouldn't take more than a few to fill in a page (you can do a whole row or more at a time).

If you need to fill in different information for each label, then you want to use the mail merge feature: you insert special fields where you want the information to appear, then "merge" the actual values from a data table.
