It does not seem as if the feature is there on the Windows 98 SE version.
There is no icon that I have discovered that refers to "nudge". There are
some alignment icons, but I have not, as yet, discovered how to activate

In my case, I probably have about 1/2" at the top and bottom of leeway
between the printed area and the edge of the form. The actual label
that is ready to be lifted from the page - wasting all the rest of the page
of course since that is the only economical way the manufacture the
sheets which contain 2 labels on the standard 8 1/2" by 11" pages -
is in the middle of the sheet and each start 9/16" below the top and 3/4"
above the bottom with about 3/8" between the 2 labels. Since each
label is 4 5/8" in diameter, the total is 10 15/16, so each of those
measurements must be slightly low - or my eyes can't see well enough.

In any case, the problem is NOT with the printer, but with my lack
of being able to understand the Avery label program in that I can't
figure out how to paste the scanned information to a slightly different
location relative to the template location of the labels that Avery
provides. Any ideas??????????????
