Save custom labels in Word 2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.

    In Word 2010 I have created labels using mail merge.  In doing so, I created a new label, with a custom page size, label size, etc.  But that new custom label does not appear saved in Word.  When I create a new mail merge in a new document, that custom label is not available to select in the mail merge process.  Does anyone know how I can save these, or if I'm doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I know of no way to add a label format to the label options, although there may be a way involving vba.

    However, you can save a page of your labels (blank) as a template and use that as your main merge document.
