Mail Merge in either LibreOffice or Pages/Numbers

I have the latest Mac OS, Pages, Numbers and the latest LibreOffice.
A list of names, addresses, etc., is on file - both Numbers and LO versions.
Am wanting to Print to Avery 5262.
There seems to be NO advice online that works for me.
Anyone?
Thanks!

iPad's Safari locked up

A lottery outfit has locked up Safari. I've done a restart but that didn't solve the problem.

Everything else seems to be OK.

How do I get rid of the lottery, please?

Thanks,

Dick

Time Machine

Every time I wake up this iMac, there is a message - or two, or three, or more - which tells me that the disk was not shut down properly. I thought that one just hooks up an external drive and gets TM operating and all is lovely. Can't find anything on line that outlines the proper procedure. Though...

Re: Scram/phishing?

You would do yourself a favour by Deleting that email "from Apple". Always check a questionable email by clicking on the Sender name; that will tell you who it really is from. The last few letters are a give-away … could be (dot) jp or dot-something else. Alan Perry put out a very helpful ...

Working in Pages

When there are a number of "objects" on a page, how can one select just one, or, if all have been selected, how to de-select just one?
A sample screen clip is attached.
Thanks,
Dick

Re: Extracting voice files from iPhone to iMac

Problem Solved.! :-)) Thanks to a direct email from David Squance, I was encouraged to pursue further. A look on the web brought me to this site <https://itstillworks.com/12310138/how-to-convert-an-m3u-to-an-mp3-online-for-free> The file that I wanted to work on had, actually, been imported to iTune...
