    Creating labels in Pages.
    Probably been asked before? Just got a new MBP for my 80th. and wonder if one can create labels in the new "Pages" word processor?

    On my old MBP I installed Word for which I have the original CD, but would rather not have two word processors on the new machine.

    What sort of labels?

    +1 and Ditto???

    If you need address labels of your contacts, you can do so right from the Contacts.app.

    PS: I also has, or used to provide, various Avery type label sheet layouts as well.

    Avery has various label templates for Pages. Check out their template roundup: Avery label templates for Pages

    Yes, thanks for that, I've seen the Avery ones but they don't have my format.

    I have a box of Labels4you, 8 to an A4 page, they measure around 99mm X 67.7mm each. I've been reading up on pages and I think I can create a "template" of my own so am investigating further!

    Yes, you can do that, https://support.apple.com/kb/PH23653...ewlocale=en_US.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    There are lots of templates available at various sites using the search:
    https://www.google.com/search?client...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    Avery has one available directly:
    Word Template for Avery L7165
    Shipping Labels, 99.06 x 67.73 mm, 8 per sheet
    https://www.avery.co.uk/word-template-l7165

    Or try:
    EU30008 - 99.1mm x 67.7mm Blank Label Template for Microsoft Word
    https://uk.onlinelabels.com/Template...osoft-word.htm

    If you get really desperate, it wouldn't be the first time I've used a small spreadsheet with the cells set to the required size. Pages should be able to do that as well.

    PS: I even used an AppleWorks spreadsheet as a plan for a large cedar lattice with stringers and posts for a fence company to build for our house's garden.

    If you need different template from your label company they say they can e-mail you one:
    Labels4u will shortly have all our Labels Templates available here for download. If you urgently need a template email us here and we will send one to you as soon as possible: leanne.adshead@labels4u.co.uk
    http://www.labels4u.co.uk/pg/8/Templates

    Hopefully that should give you several choices.

    Sounds good, however, make sure you try your home made template on blank sheets of paper first.

    Good suggestion Charles, and I always held the first plain paper printed sample over the commercial label sheet and held them up to a window or glass panned door that makes it easy to see if everything is aligned properly.

    BTW: The Avery stand alone offline Design&Print.app was very good for designing and printing most labels, if they sill provide and support it:
    Design&Print
    https://www.avery.com/software/design-and-print/desktop

    PS: Most labels are pretty well standardized among the various manufacturers, at least they are here in Canada.
