Default Problems using Avery L7163 labels

Christmas again and usual label printing job.



This year I am using Word 2019 for the first time having upgraded from 2010 at last and I have a problem with MailMerge form an Outlook contacts list. The spacing on the labels is wrong. Firstly, by default, each line has too much space and the label registration drifts. If I change before/after spacing to zero the labels look OK on the screen but the registration still drifts.

I print on A4 label sheets.

Any ideas?

The spacing on the labels is controlled by whatever spacing your Word installation applies to the Style upon which their content is based. Instead of overriding that with direct formatting, you should update the relevant Style definition. I note that the default for those labels uses the Normal Style with 0 before/after spacing - so maybe some changed either the Style or its spacing, or applied some other direct formatting.

It's not clear what you mean by "the label registration drifts". Check the table row properties - they should all be set to 3.81cm (1.5in) 'Exactly'. If they are and the output's vertical position progressively moves up/down the label, you may have a faulty printer feed mechanism or a faulty/incorrect printer driver. To eliminate the latter as a potential problem, go to the maker's website and download & install the latest driver for your printer.
