Hello:

I'm trying to find a way to duplicate a single lable to fill a page.

I found this though:

Click Mailings on the Ribbon.
Click the Labels under the "Create" section.
Click the Labels tab from the "Envelopes and Labels" window.

In the address window, I can type something and select "Print Full Page of Same Label."

OK, that's easy enough. And it works, I've tested it. So why am I having problems? I can't put an image file in the address window. I'm trying to print labels with an image and text. And as I've already mentioned, I'd like all of the labels on the page to print the same.

If I just open the label form and try to edit it outside of the address window, like a regular word document, you have to try to center the image and text on each individual label (nighmare).

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Brian

Hi magusbuckley,

I have a suggestion for you that I hope will give you the results needed. Follow your steps below regarding the Create > Labels > Print full page of same label. (Make sure you select "new document") and then your new page of labels will be created.

Doing the above will ensure you have selected the proper label settings within the Label wizard so they print out correctly.

Now, once you have that page of labels, go ahead and delete all of them except for the first one. Just don't delete the cell borders, otherwise will lose the alignment.

In that one label, copy and paste your desired image into it, format the image for size and then set the its Wrap Text as Tight. This will keep your address info in the proper lines. Once you have this one label formatted correctly, go ahead and copy it into all the empty label spaces you just cleared out.

Now you should be able to print a nice set of labels with your desired image.


Sincerely,

dm

Thanks for the reply.

I tried your method and yes, it works. Obviously there should be an easier way. Shame on Microsoft for not allowing us to paste a picture in the address window. Of all possible methods, though, I think you've found the easiest solution.

Thanks for the help.

Hello,

I agree it's not the most elegant work around. What's interesting is that if you copy an image and try to paste into the label window, the paste image icon does appear (of course you know it doesn't actually paste the image).

Glad to helped you out. Enjoy your day!
