Also. Option to leave some labels empty (when some stickeys are 
already removed from paper and I want to print the rest ones).

Issue 15100 has now been fixed which was blocking this enhancement.

if HBL = 1 then
  insert hiddenparagraph(not($FIELD)).$FIELD
  insert $FIELD

Avery Wizard and MS Word offer a feature like Suppress Blank Lines. 

Thanks very much for your considering this bug.
