Ever open up a label template and it looks like a blank page? For instance, our ML-5000 label has 50 labels per page, but all you see is white. The ML-5000 is a UPC barcode label. People use it for all kinds of different things, not just UPC barcodes. Even though you don’t see the labels, most of the time, there is not a problem with the template. The Microsoft Word template is not blank, chances are the problem is that the grid lines are just not visible. Ok, now where has Microsoft Word hidden the view cell boarders feature? ……..Found it. It’s under Table Tools, Design, Borders, View Gridlines. 😉
