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.

Yes, it's double to 29924. It's not the envelope, it occurs just by specific
page formats. PL knows it.
