Act! — Extra Blank Envelope Prints

Act! is a won­der­ful con­tact man­ager and busi­ness oppor­tu­nity man­ager.  How­ever, if you spend too much time try­ing to fig­ure out a tech­ni­cal glitch, you loose all that effi­ciency!  I have just done that and spent too much time try­ing to fig­ure out why my #10 enve­lope report always prints one extra enve­lope at the end.  Here is the solu­tion so you don’t waste your time!  » Read more about Act! — Extra Blank Enve­lope Prints »

Act! — Creating New Label Formats

Cre­at­ing new label for­mats in Act! can be chal­leng­ing.  The spac­ing between labels and the top & bot­tom mar­gins don’t always line up on the printed page the way you expect.  Some­times the labels seem to creep down the page; other times the sec­ond col­umn seems to start a lit­tle too far to the left cut­ting off part of the label.  Here is the trick on get­ting labels that are spaced cor­rectly.  » Read more about Act! — Cre­at­ing New Label Formats »
