Every time I try and create an Avery Label, (doesn't mater which one or size) and I save the document, it kicks the last row of labels to the 2nd page.  I have tried changing page margins and everything.  Any Ideas???

HI,

Which Avery are you using Avery ZweckForm or Avery A4/A5 or Avery US Letter

If your paper size is US Then  only use Avery US Letter

Hi,

I would say it's a bug, when you select 5960 then go to details reduce the top Margin to the half Click Ok it creates a custom Label Definition You can now change the label Name by New Label

Hi,

pls try

go to Insert / Header / Edit Header

Then you can change the Top margin

When you save the labels are you saving in .docx format or .doc?  Your screenshot shows that you have Word 2010, but the document you attached is a .doc instead of a .docx.

not sure why the headers & footers are messing them up, but after changing them to 0, all is well!

Thanks
