OpenOffice is similar to Microsoft Word. Both have the ability to edit the Document Properties. This can be important. We like to edit the document properties on all our address label templates. There you will find so much more information about the label. We’ve got all of our vital information in there like email, website, telephone, and even a url. You can add your own customized information.
It’s important especially when putting your document on the internet. Folks will download it, and use it now and then. Then they’ll forget where they got it, but the properties will remind them where it came from. Nice.
If you like free stuff (like free shipping), like we do here at MacoLabels.com, you’ll love Ubuntu Linux. We use Ubuntu Linux here as one of our operating systems. You can find and download a ton of free software for Ubuntu that will help you do lots of things … like print Avery compatible Maco labels using a free program called OpenOffice. If you’re running Microsofts OS, Vista, you can download Ubuntu and install it on a Virtual Machine which is essentially a file on your computer that simulates another computer, so you don’t even need a separate computer to install Ubuntu on. You’ll discover a lot of fun software from file sharing to mp3 rippers to spreadsheets, databases and so much more.
