Ok, I am completely frustrated that I've been unable to figure this out on my own.

Here is my problem .. I need the firstname/lastname and company fields to be bolded. It will only bold one of them. For example, if there is only a firstname/lastname or only a company name, then all is ok, but if there is a firstname, lastname and company name, only whichever one is placed on the first line is bolded. Surely there has to be a way to tell the program to bold these fields regardless of placement?

Here is why this is important to me. For example, if I have a couple with different lastnames and they are long names, then I have to break their names onto separate lines, due to the length of both on the same line. If only the first one is bolded, then it appears as if I am attaching more importance to one recipient over the other.

Understand that I'm not talking about doing one label at a time, but wanting the template to operate with a group of recipients, with some having just a firstname/lastname or just a company, but one could have both.

Please tell me that this can be done!

Thanks,

Martin

Hi Martin,

You should double-click on each field you wish to modify, select text in it and choose the typeface in the Fonts pane (press Cmd-T to open it). Some fonts don't have the bold or italic typefaces.

Once you have selected the bold typeface for a certain field, this property will apply to a new address you select.

Nick,

Thanks so much ... that did it! One thing ... I looked in the documentation with the search key word "bold" and couldn't find any reference to how this is done. Is there a section that deals with this?

Thanks,

Martin

If you type "bold" into the search box, the Help Viewer must lead you to several pages. One of them is about the menu commands:
