Combining and Splitting Address Panels


Labels & Addresses gives you the ability to create custom address templates using the template editor described in Custom Addresses Templates. Alternatively, you can create and customize address panels right on the canvas.

This method takes advantage of the Combine Address Panel and Split Address Panel commands.

Combine Address Panel creates a custom address panel from the several data fields.
Split Address Panel transforms the selected address panel into separate data fields.

Instead of combining data fields into an address panel, you can group them. Note that creating an address panel is not the same as grouping. In a group, data fields can be moved or deleted together, but auto formatting does not work. Address panels are preferable for batch printing.

 

Creating a new Address Panel

  1. Add data fields that should be included into the new address panel. For this, use the Insert > Personal Data Field menu or the Insert Data Field button in the tool bar.
  2. Arrange the added data fields to form an address. You don't have to set exact spaces between fields because the program will correct them.
  3. Select the data fields, right-click on them and choose Combine Address Panel in the pop-up menu.

 

Customizing a Standard Address Panel

  3. Delete unnecessary fields or add new fields.
  4. Arrange the data fields to form an address.
  5. Select the data fields, right-click on them and choose Combine Address Panel in the pop-up menu.
