Documentation checkarticle.png This article needs to be checked for accuracy and style.


To print an envelope, follow these steps:

  1. Open OOo Writer.
  2. Insert > Envelope.
  3. On the Envelope tab, enter your address info.
  4. On the Format tab, set Size > Format to DL. Adjust layout to suit.
  5. On the Printer tab, select the layout that reflects how to feed.
  6. On the same tab, click on Setup. This opens a new dialog.
  7. On the Setup dialog, select your printer and click Properties.
  8. On the Properties dialog, select the envelope size in the dialog.
  9. Same dialog, select Orientation. This depends on how your envelope feeds (see step 5) In any case, landscape means that the text is rotated 90 degrees so that it is parallel to the envelope and vice versa for portrait.
  10. If you have a manual feed tray, select this under Device.
  11. Click OK.
  12. Click OK.
  13. Select New Doc if you only want the envelope or insert to add it to your existing doc.
  14. In the new window, check that all is okay and click the Print icon.

Now you have an envelope.

Skipping steps 6 through 12 will cause you no end of problems.
