Adjusting Margins on 1/2″ Circle Label

So our old MR-808 template had teeny margins for some reason, and it only fit one letter on each line. It’s not really the margins that are the problem, it’s the indents. So here’s a step by step process to fix it:

To Change this, just select all of the cells by clicking in the first cell and holding and dragging to the lowest left cell, then click on the PAGE LAYOUT tab. Then under indent, fill in some minimal margins. We used .06. The numbers might disappear, but they’ll be there.

To make things neater, because it’s a 1/2″ circle label, you’ll want to center the text Horizontally and Vertically as we did below by first right clicking, and then clicking on table properties in the pop up dialoge box.
