How do I delete a second box in Openoffice writer for printing envelopes? The origional box was there when I downloaded the software but I clicked on something and a 2nd box appeared below it so now I can't figure how to remove it? Maybe it is called a second page because when I print a envelope it prints on a second piece of paper which is annoying. Can anyone help me fix this please?? :?:

Thanks!!

There are many settings that could cause this behavior, if you upload the document it's much easier to assist.

From a screenshot you can see how it looks, but not what is causing the issue.
Please upload the document so we can see the settings.

You upload a writer document (odt file) the same as you upload a screen print.
There is nothing to delete and download for this simple task.

It looks like a third table has been inserted. How many tables are shown in the Navigator?

I think I added the file but not sure if I did it right or if this is the right file? Wasn't sure what do do with the file from the start or the first thing to do?

The Addressee table seems to have an extra row. To delete it, click in the second "box" and select Table > Delete > Rows.

That doesn't work for me. It only moves the second row up to the first page. The "box" and an empty second page are still there.

You have to click on the bottom of the second page then hit the alt key and delete key then hit the up key.

Nothing happens at all in Windows 8.1. "Alt+Delete" "Alt+Up" aren't assigned keyboard shortcut in AOO, so I don't know what they are supposed to do. They may be OS-related shortcuts.

You are supposed to hit the "alt" key and "delete" key at the same time while hitting the up key. So really you are hitting 3 keys at once. Works fine for me.. I have a new windows 8 computer. Thanks!!

Another question? Can I set so it prints an envelope to one side of the printer instead of in the middle? Right now I have to place the envelope in the middle of the printer tray or slot.

What model printer do you have?

Are you sure it doesn't have a way to (manually) feed envelopes or other odd-sized media?

I have a Brother MFC J825DW but I have a Epson ordered which supports the envelope to the right in the paper feed area. I will be using the Epson. Thanks for the help.

Both Brother lasers I've used have a manual feed pass-thru for envelopes and the like. I don't see something like that for the MFC but the specs do say that the paper tray can be adjusted to hold different size media, including envelopes. You may have to remove the paper and adjust the sliding paper guides inside the paper tray to match the envelopes.
