Every year we create Christmas cards. We use the same size card, and we place a picture on the envelope. In previous years, we have used Word for this. I want to start using Writer.
So with that background these are my trials.
I used Envelope
from the Insert
menu. I created the envelope got the data source, put the picture on the envelope, and looked at the results. Worked great! Except, blank address lines were displayed.
So I thought to myself Self! why not use mail merge. This allows you to surpress blank lines in addresses. So I set up the document as an envelope. got the data source (a little frustrating there). Added the picture, and looked at the results. Worked great! Except the picture did not print.
So I have two methods that do almost what I want. I could pre-print the picture and then print the addresses, but that seems like more work than it should be.
I also read a description in the forum on how to surpress blank lines. However some of the responses seemed to indicate that it didn't always work. So am I doing something wrong, or do I just pick the best option and go with it.
I also have a problem editing a data source. Using Writer 2.3 I can create the data source (as .csv), add the values. I can also edit the source. However no changes are saved (either new or changed)
I also tried a later version of Writer (not sure which level) and I can create a data source, but cannot edit it. Any suggestions.
Thanks in advance
