Description xfox 2007-02-04 01:51:29 UTC
The envelope printing feature accessible via Insert --> Envelope… needs an
option to specify that the envelope loading orientation is horizontally flipped
with respect to the default one.
Ideally, a new checkbox called "Flip horizontal" should be placed in the Printer
tab of the Envelope dialog. Its activation should horizontally flip all the
envelope incons in the six available feeding position representation (and
obviously the final print should reflect this change).
This is absolutely needed if the printer cannot succesfully load envelopes with
the default orientation. This is the case, for example, of my Epson Stylus C86
that munches all the envelopes that I try to feed to it with the opening side
toward the internal of the printer.

The status is still UNCONFIRMED, why didn't you change it to NEW?

You should not try to horizontally print.

Virtually every Epson printer I know have a paperfeed that is designed for
vertical paper feed.

But maybe I misunderstood and you don't want to flip at any axis, but instead
rotate it 180 degrees... 

With my Epson, the envelope is inserted with the opening side at the fixed side,
the closed side at the size with the lever to adjust to the page width.

Please comment

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding, what I want is the possibility to insert the
envelope rotated of 180 degrees.
My Epson printer accepts enevelopes like cloph's one but current available
orientations don't admit it.
Please change the summary to best describe this enhancement request.
