How do I create an Address Label using Microsoft Word Add-In and formatting the text? (P-touch Editor 5.x for Windows)

Copy text from Microsoft Word and create an address label.

  1. Copy text


    In Microsoft Word, select the text to be imported, and then click Image on the [Add-in] tab of the Ribbon.

    Text can also be copied from Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook.

  2. Format the text


    Use the Text Property bar to change the text format.

    If the Text Property bar is not shown, click on Image.

  3. Print the label

    Click Image on the Command bar.

  4. Completed label


    Peel the printed label from backing and apply the label.

    If the Add-In is set to register the text in the Label List, the imported data from Microsoft Word will be registered in the Label List as follows.

    Label Data


     Date Created  "Date" field
     First line of data  "Title" field
     All imported data  "Body" field
     Postal code (as determined from the highlighted information*)  "Code" field
    *The "Code" field is registered as a 5-digit number, a 5-digit to 4-digit number, or a 9-digit number.
