    Default Making Avery labels on OpenSuse

    Hey all,

    I want to print off some avery labels.

    When I had a Windows machine, It was through Office Word that I would create/print my avery labels.

    What can I use to create/print Avery labels?

    I can't seem to find the avery labelmaker in OpenOffice. I did find the envelope maker.

    Thanks

    IIRC some free label templates were announced for OpenOffice a while back. Sorry, I don't print labels so I couldn't tell you where, but I'm sure it will turn up in a search. Ah, here's one turned up by the search "avery openoffice":

    Using and Customizing Templates in OpenOffice.org | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

    and the company that gives out the templates is worldlabel.

    It's obscured.

    Go to Applicatons->Office->Office Suite (that's the OOo frontend).

    >From there you'll get a selection of what you want to create, choose

    Labels... then you can select Avery whatever....

    Tying that into a database or spreadsheet to fill in values...
    the next lesson (which means I remember it not being intuitive
    but possible).
