Description bruce_woodford 2007-12-11 02:54:04 UTC
I selected the No 9 envelope as the page size with Landscape orientation, then successfully created a template & used it with the Mailmerge Wizard to merge database fields to create addressed envelopes which showed properly in the window at Step 7. However when I attempted to print, the envelopes came thru the printer blank. When I used Print Preview, there were two pages for each record - one had the proper information on it, the other was blank. The workaround was to use a standard 8.5x11 page size for the template, landscape format, with the fields put in the proper position to print on my envelopes - this worked successfully. BTW, I had earlier used a template that had been created with a previous version of Writer (not sure which one) to successfully print on different size envelopes. Operating system is Windows XP Home, SP3, current on updates.

What about when you just print the envelope without starting mail merge wizard?

It appears that the issue may reside in Format, not the Mailmerge wizard. At HI's suggestion, I tried to print text in the following way: Started with a default blank, Letter size page, Portrait Orientation Typed text - printed ok Switched to Landscape Orientation - printed ok Switched to #9 Envelope - printed blank Switched to Letter size, Landscape - printed blank Switched to Letter, Portrait - printed ok Switched to Letter, Landscape - printed blank Switched to Letter, Portrait - printed ok Started with a new, default blank document. Switched to Landscape, typed text, - printed ok Switched to #9 Envelope, Landscape - printed blank The #9 envelope template will print in the Portrait orientation, but of course the text is in the wrong orientation for an envelope.

Maybe another duplicate to http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi? id=29924?

Yes, it's double to 29924. It's not the envelope, it occurs just by specific page formats. PL knows it. *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 29924 ***
