Designing Labels and Business Cards

You can design both labels and business cards through the Labels dialog.

  1. Choose File - New - Labels to open the Labels dialog.

  2. On the Labels tab, under Format, define the label format.

    LibreOffice Writer contains many formats of commercially available sheets for labels, badges, and business cards. You can also add other, user-defined formats.

  3. On the Labels tab, under Inscription, you can choose what you want written on the labels.

    This often involves database fields, so that the labels can be printed with varying content, when sending "Form Letters" for example. It is also possible to have the same text printed on every label.

    Use the Database and Table list boxes to select the database and table from which the data fields are obtained. Click on the arrow button to transfer the selected data field into the inscription area. Press Enter to insert a line break. You can also enter spaces and any other fixed text.

    On the Format tab you can define your own label formats, not covered by the predefined formats. To do this, select "User" from the Type list box. On the Options tab, you can specify whether all labels or only certain ones are to be created.

  4. On the Options tab page, make sure that the Synchronize contents box is selected. If this is selected, a label only has to be entered (on the top left label) and edited once.

  5. Click on New Document to create a new document with the settings you have entered.

  6. As soon as you click on New Document, you will see a small window with the Synchronize Labels button. Enter the first label. When you click on the Synchronize Labels button, the current individual label is copied to all the other labels on the sheet.
