How to format label reports for the Avery 5160 label type.

Printing Student Mailing Labels On the Mac

  1. Open your report to run labels from. In this example, I used the STU802 (Student Mailing Labels) report. Path Synergy SIS ---> Student ---> Labels ---> STU802 - Student Mailing Labels
  2. Make the appropriate selections on the "Student Options" tab based on your needs.
  3. On the "label setup" tab, make sure you have selected the Avery 5160 label type.
  4. Click the "Print" button, locate the downloaded report on your computer, and open the report in Apple's "Preview" app. Do not use Adobe's Acrobat Reader.
  5. In Preview, go to the "File" menu and select "Print."
  6. In the print dialogue window that opens, click the "Scale" radio button and set it to 100%. If you don't see these choices, make sure you have the pulldown menu below the "orientation" icons set to "Preview"

Note that if the text doesn't fit inside the labels perfectly, you may want to check the margins in page setup in Synergy. The ideal top margin is 0.55 and the side one is 0.30. That will ensure that all text stays within each label boarders.
