Default Change Drawing Tools to Text Box Tools to insert address in labels


Hi, I have downloaded an address template and want to add address using text but I can't change the Drawing Tools option?

Without seeing the template, no-one here is likely to have any idea what the issue is. You can attach a file to a post via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

You don't. The tools you get depend on whether you've selected a drawing or a text box.

Sure you can type text in labels, but your document doesn't contain any. What your document contains is a set of grouped rectangular auto-shapes with rounded corners.

If you want to create labels, use Word's label tools (found under Mailings|Labels). In this case, it looks like you're trying to reproduce Avery J8163, J8363, J8563, L6054 - L6057, L7063, L7163, L7263, L7963, or equivalent, labels for A4 stock.
