Exporting a mailing label report to PDF shifts the address off ...



The report is created using the wizard "File->New->Mailing Label Report". Everything looks good at the preview. Following are the dimensions:

- 4 X 1 inches

- 2 labels across, 10 down

- Paper would be 8-1/2 X 11 inches (Letter sized) (labeled) paper

- 0.5 inches page margin on top and bottom

- 0.156 inches left & right margins

- Horizontally .188 inches between labels

- Vertically NO space between labels

For this, in the Crystal Reports Designer, I used Mailing Label Type = "Address (Avery 5261)".


However, when trying to export the report to PDF and when we print the report, addresses go off the labels (shifts up slightly starting from the begining). It looks like the font sizes, etc are not maintained. Therefore, visually, addresses shifts up gradually and does not fall into labels.

Other specific details

The first address was too low, I mean after .5 inches top margin, this first address started to appear .4 inches down the margin. If we measure from top of one address to the top of next one, it is about .9 inch and not 1 inch.

Later I tried this [template|] as well. I faced the same issue.

Had anyone worked with mailing labels report faced similar issue?

I appreciate your help
