Labels - US units selection not remembered

Post by mikeduncan177 » Sat Apr 04, 2015 4:58 am

I successfully created an Avery Label (#5160) used in the US, by entering its dimensions. I checked the US Units box, but noticed that as I was using the label definition that this unit selection was not "sticky" even after Saving the label definition. It would be helpful to correct this. Also, it might be better to have a New Label button, when you want to create a new label definition.

I wanted to create a sheet of the same address label repeated. Everything worked correctly, except the last row of labels was truncated. I have attached an example of this.

I do have the latest beta installed, Rev 726.0331.

I stumbled across this problem independently trying to do exactly the thing that Mike was doing, creating an Avery 5160 label sheet. The problem seems to be that the last row of the label sheet has the bottom margin set incorrectly. This seems to apply to all of the provided templates, not just custom created ones, and only to the last row on the page.

I'll second Mike's remarks that implementation could be a little more intuitive.

I'm going to bump this up and provide some examples.

The attached files are all label sheets, one created from a custom label sheet template for Avery 5160 labels, the other two from label sheet templates provided with the beta. In all three cases, the last row of labels has truncated data and in all three cases the bottom margin of the last row of the sheet is incorrect compared to all of the other rows on the page.

I can see the problem and informed the developers. Thank you!

The issue has been solved and will no longer occur in the next beta.
