IŽd like to print labels based on a calc sheet. Works fine so far. The problem is: it always starts with the first label in the first row. This is a waste of paper if I do not use a whole label sheet. So if the label sheet is partially used I have a problem to arrange the labels individually.

How can I position the single labels as I want when printing multiple different labels based on a calc - sheet?

Another problem: I selected exactly the label type I use. But when printing, it does not match 100%?

I use mac os x, neo office (and fire fox).

Thx a lot for your help

Try using this macro for partially used label sheets.

I' not sure what your "does not match 100%" problem might be but remember that when you are in the label wizard you can put other things in the left pane besides the fields. For instance, a blank paragraph can be placed above the first fields and spaces in front of them thus pushing the label content down and to the right.

I was using a label type the other day that completely occupied the page, i.e, zero margins, and had to use this approach to avoid my printer's build in top and left margin requirements.
