Bad Alignment

There is no question that a large number of computer users rely heavily on vendors of certain products they use to make life easier for them. One such product is a template.

Avery, the company that makes labels such as those used for mailing, offers a template that supposedly makes it easy to create them in Microsoft Word. However, novices will have difficulty creating the labels such that the text in the document actually lines up with the labels on a sheet like this.

The problem for the novice is that the labels could print like this. And when you peel them off you lose the first character of each line.

However, by adding a small indent to the text style, the error is corrected.

I am a veteran graphic designer who started at the time when cut and paste meant an X-acto knife and rubber cement. I use my experience to educate others. I have an intolerance for ignorance and stupidity.
