I've been printing labels successfully for some years with LOWriter, but since upgrading to 6.1 I cannot get it to work.

I select the appropriate Database Query as source of the data, set the format, select synchronise contents, set the Inscription text, Click New Document (otherwise I cannot format the display of the Inscription) and format the Inscription.

So far, so good. However, when I click 'synchronise Labels' nothing happens. I'm stuck there. Also there's no 'New Document' tab.

Previously, 'synchronise Labels' substituted real data for the fields in the first label and I could then carry on.

Please have a look at my answer in this post -> Having trouble populating a table with a spread sheet.

Many thanks, that sorted it. The change in the display in 6.0 threw me and I couldn't find the Edit Individual Documents tab.

Could it be this bug 61030 ?

It has some similarities, but I've been producing these labels in identical format for at least 5 years without problems (with OO and now LO), so I can't think it's the same.
