The layout is incorrect when I print labels with P-touch Editor 5.x for Mac.

The label layout may not be correct if you use P-touch Editor 5.2 or later to print label files created with P-touch Editor 5.1. We recommend adjusting the layout in P-touch Editor 5.2 or later, and then printing the label. You can also print the label with P-touch Editor 5.1 instead.
