We are trying to print our Christmas address labels. I did this last year with Mail Factory and it worked easily - so I think I know what I am doing. This year we have the upgrade: Labels & Addresses. Everything looks like it should work the same, but it just sends the labels through unprinted.
This is what I'm doing:
1. File > Merge Printing
2. I choose 2010 Christmas list and it recognizes that I have 141 labels to print. The Preview shows blank labels - no addresses.
3. I click on NEXT and it indicates that it will take 5 pages of labels to print.
4. I click on PRINT and a dialog box appears showing me that it is processing this
5. My printer rapidly shoots our 5 blank sheets of labels ;-/

Please help!

Hi Linda,

You probably have forgotten to add an address panel to the label before choosing File > Merge printing. An address panel acts as a form that is automatically filled with addresses. Choose Insert > Address Panel > Recipient.

Addresses showed in the print preview will indicate that you did the described above correctly.
