Custom label sizes

I'm setting up layouts for a Zebra printer that will use three different layouts (the user loads the appropriate label spool). While FileMaker does a nice job of preloading many common Avery labels, I've always found setting custom sizes to be a pain.

 

I have the label dimensions (see attached). But even after setting up the custom label size and paper size it doesn't work. I spend a lot of time and labels doing trail and error

 

Am I making this harder than it needs to be? Is there a quick way to do this?

 

To make it more challenging, it seems to me that there are thee variables that can be tweaked:

 

1. Label Setup

2. Part Setup

3. Page Setup

 

(See attached).

 

If anyone has any recommendations, particularly when setting up a Zebra or other label printer, I'd love to hear them.

 

Thanks.
