I printed with whatever version libre office was with ubuntu 12.04 precise(version 3.something) and text was overflowing out the second and third columns. Upgraded to 4.1.4.2 and the overflow got a little bit better but still overflows but now the top of the text overflows as well.

Just seeing if anyone has a solution, I'll probably end up downgrading since a few people seem to have figured out dimensions for the older bug: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/19692/libre-office-404-for-windows-still-has-a-bug-when-printing-labels-i-tried-to-use-the-libre-office-writer-to-print-labels-on-the-avery-5160-form-and/

I might also upgrade to ubuntu 13.10 just to be sure. My upgrade caused xfwm4 to behave a bit odd so I might have dependency issues or something. I got asked for my database password twice when doing New -> Labels. I also got several crashes after doing New -> Labels and clicking Tools.

Ok, got it working with a view and I see the API documentation. All is well.

That's currently what I'm doing and now I'm trying to restrict it to the first 30 rows. I know the labels template and mail merge are making queries somehow, and I'd be fine(prefer) using an API to program these things in directly instead of messing with GUI.

I can create mailing labels that take SQL table fields and populate a labels template with their values via File -> New -> Templates. The problem is it uses all rows when I want to use a SQL WHERE clause to select only some rows.

Am I supposed to make the query in Base first then pass the data in somehow?
