[Solved] Inserting Envelope problem

Postby xairetech@gmail.com » Fri May 08, 2020 11:02 pm

Inserting Envelope in writer as #10 envelope, positions sender information about 3.5" to the right and similarly for the addressee.
The only fix I can find is to manually move both items to the left in appropriate positions.

I tried altering the frame positions detail, that change re-positioned the data field(s) but was not saved for a new file.

Is there a way to preset the configuration, so that Envelope insert works correctly?

The moved frame stays in the new place for me when I save and re-open a .odt file. AOO 4.1.7.

I think the Envelope template is fixed so don't use it.

See p314 in the Writer Guide for how to define your own envelope format.
