CREATING RETURN LABELS USING BLOCKS FROM
BLOCK BASE
IN MICROSOFT WORD 97 AND COREL WORDPERFECT 8.0
Created: 10 November 1998

Use the Instructions outlined in Lesson 13 in your Block Base Manual to create PCX files of the blocks you want to appear on your labels.

NOTE: These instructions will also work if you want to use your Quilt designs from EQ3 on your Labels. The only change you would make is where you look for the Quilt Export from EQ3 which would be in the "Pic" Folder under EQ3. First, you would create the export from EQ3 using Lesson 16 in the EQ3 Manual.
