editing Works labels

By john_wills ·
How do I edit a Works 7 label file or template? I want to be able to rearrange the items in the label area, and I also want to be able to change the dimensions of the label area. It seems that I have to construct the entire template or file from scratch every time, but Bill Gates surely does not prefer office so much as to sabotage Works that much. I was able to do it in an earlier version of works.

The article mentiond above shows the steps necessary to save and retrieve the personalized template. It appears as though there are a couple of additional steps beyond what you might think. But the article covers it all.

The second link is to a pare with user tips and other info.

The articles - in so far as they still exist - do not address the practical problem of what to do to change an extant label file. I want to be able to remove a database item, move an item from one part of the label to another, make the label a little bigger or smaller, etc. Sometimes I would need to make the label bigger before adding or moving a database item, but the list of database items has to be removed before I can address the label.
