Return address label program.


Can anyone recommend a return address label maker program for Slackware 14.1 (64 bit)?

LibreOffice should do the job, depending on the specification for your labels. https://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Labels

You can create your own custom format or, if your lucky, find a preconfigured template.

If these links don't help, please provide more detailed information about what precisely you wish to do.

You could try gLabels, depending on what you need.

Those links do help - and yet they don't. Please let me explain - LibreOffice helps in that it lets me create the type of labels that I want, but it doesn't help in that it won't allow me to change the font size for all the labels . How do I fix that (and no, the "Select all" option does NOT work)?

Right click on a label > Edit Paragraph Styles > Font > Apply

you can change one label, and apply it to all on the page if you are using a page of small individual labels. LibreOffice is great for labels, one at a time or an entire sheet.

NutCase, web searches are your friend...https://lmsptfy.com/?q=how%20to%20us...20for%20labels

It turns out that those directions were more helpful than I thought at first (which should teach me to read the instructions thoroughly before I complain about them).
