Windows 10: Need software for labels

    Need software for labels

    I make a lot of labels for storage boxes.

    In Word 2003, that was a breeze: bring up the template, choose a font, then type my text and insert my graphic within the label boundaries shown.

    But now I use Word 2016, and it seems to think that labels are only for mailings and should contain only text. I tried importing Avery templates, but they don't show outlines of the labels. The Avery Wizard works only up through Word 2013.

    Short of reinstalling Word 2003 (and can I do that without reinstalling the rest of that Office suite?), does anyone know a program I could use simply for making custom labels?

    You can do a Custom install of Office by just unchecking the things you don't want. Personally I find WordPerfect quite easy for creating repetitive labels, sheet at a time, have used it since '92. There are other programs, some ideas:
