Thank you for your post.
If you already selected a label layout, pull down the View menu and select "Layout Mode". Next, pull down the View menu and select "Object Info" and a small "Info" box displays. Click on the layout where it says "Body", and numbers will appear in the "Info" box. The trick is to measure the label from the top of one label to the top of the second label. Assuming from your calculations that it is 1-1/16 inches in height, click where it says Body and type into the bottom box of Info: 1.063. It will end up saying 1.069, but that will be the height of your label. If the distance from the top of the first label to the top of the second label is actually 1-1/8, then enter 1.125 (or 1-1/4 = 1.250).
Then, try printing a couple of labels to make sure it prints properly.
Thank you for the suggestions and sorry about the delayed response. Still cannot get it. The DYMO labels feed out of the printer lengthwise (with text printing from left to right) one at a time. I cannot relate your instructions ("top of one label to the top of the second label") to the situation. What does this mean with a continuous roll of labels being printed out horizontally? I'm not even sure of the feed instructions (number of columns, down or across, page margins). Sorry to be so dense. I have printed tons of Avery labels from FileMaker on 8X11 forms no problem but this DYMO LabelWriter is a mystery.
From another forum
I tried to use a Dymo labeler about a year ago and ran into the same problems you are having. I never did figure out how to get it to work directly with Filemaker so I just export the records to Excel. The Dymo printer takes to Excel like a duck takes to water.
I fiddled around trying to get FM to work with Dymo for a couple hours and then just gave up. There may be an answer but I didn't find it.
So, my solution: on my existing labels layout, I created a little button in the upper-right hand corner of each label. This button triggers a script that simply copies the content of the field for that given label to the user's clipboard.
A quick alt-tab into the Dymo application (which is actually quite a decent app) followed by a "paste" and "print" button - and they have a label. Quite a few clicks less than FileMaker's Print dialog. And, I've saved the effort of creating a new Dymo layout for each of the labels.
What's nice about the Dyno app is that when the user pastes the copied address into the label, the text format of the saved label is retained.
