Apache Open Office - making simple wine labels

Postby tracerman » 08 Oct 2015, 15:16

Dear all - I have Windows 7 Pro , and including Apache Open Office . I want to create some simple wine labels , ideally six labels from an A4 sheet , with same text in all six sections . I used to do this somehow in a previous version of Windows but the sequence of moves is eluding me . I am assuming Apache is my starting point ? . Can some kind soul help ? .

Steve, I no longer have Neo Office which I used to use for MS Office documents etc but back in the day I downloaded templates from the web and used them for all sorts of labels but not wine. I can see there are wine label templates out there so should be quite simple.

These days I create a table in Word, place a text box in each cell and decorate and fill with text as required. I would think the same can be done in Apache.

Morning Steve

If you open Help in OO and search for labels, the first option you get is 'creating and synchronising'.

Enjoy.
