Print one label or card starting anywhere on the label or card sheet
(To quickly create print a full sheet of identical labels, see LABLCOPY)
This macro prints one label or business card starting at any position on the sheet. This is useful when you need an extra label or two for return receipts, packages, multiple envelopes, file folders, etc., and you do not want to waste an entire sheet of label stock just to print one or two labels. (To print a range of labels from a document of saved labels, or print just a few labels from a newly created label, see the MoreTips section below.)
Since the macro can start printing labels from anywhere on the sheet, using it may help save label stock by allowing reuse of the same sheet, especially if you begin printing each time from the bottom of the sheet to minimize paper jamming. See Disclaimer below.
Step 1. Format a label or card with Format, Labels. This will produce a single label or card on screen.
Step 2. Add text in the label or card and play the macro with Tools, Macro, Play (or Alt+F10), or play the macro and then add the text.
1. To print a full sheet with the same text -- e.g., return address labels or business cards -- use the author's LABLCOPY macro.
2. If you created and saved a WordPerfect document containing a full sheet of address labels, then you can easily print specific labels from that document. As Jack Waananen (Corel C_Tech) says:
3. If you have created a brand new label but you only need to print a few copies (e.g., 3 labels): Use LABLCOPY to create the duplicates (e.g., 3 in the LABLCOPY menu), then use LABLPRNT to "push" the block of labels downward the required number of labels. If this works well for you, you can create a new, simple, 2-line macro to "chain" these two macros together:
4. IMPORTANT: If you print labels from anywhere other than the end of the sheet, it is better to discard the sheet after removing the labels you just printed. Sheets with labels removed from anywhere but the end of the sheet are more prone to jamming in the printer. The same can be true of label sheets that are reused but are not stored properly between uses. See Note below.
