Just wanted to let others know in case they run into the same issue.  I received a request for 3 books from a member.   I wanted to split the shipment - mail two together and one separately.   When I clicked on "split the shipment", I thought I would then get an option how to split it.  Instead I received three separate "print label" windows.  I had no choice but to send all three individually.

I still don't know how to split it two ways.  Any ideas?

So you want to use TWO labels instead of the THREE which the computer spat out ?

Just use two and recycle the third back into the printer to use the backside of that sheet of paper.

Just because it prints out three seperate labels does not mean you have to mail them seperately...

Actually, if it's pre-paid you probably would need to use them seperately or just lose the money and also confuse everyone.

I use PBS DC.  I realize I could have printed one PBS-DC, wrapped all three books together, received one instant credit and pay the additional postage at the post office due to the added weight.  But, it was early in the morning and I printed three DC labels instead.  Next time,(if there is a next time for a request of 3 or more books), I will stick them in a box and ship them altogether.
