Envelope Printing Settings

Issues installing under the Mac OSX - X11 - Aqua

Envelope Printing Settings

Postby eeirving » Tue Apr 29, 2014 10:15 pm

I am printing from a Mac Pro System 10.9.2 to a Brother Model MFC-J870DW Printer. I want to print envelopes, size # 10, 9.5 X 4.125. I checked with Brother to make sure I was inserting the envelope correctly into the Brother Printer.
The Problem:
The Sender Address is being cut in half which includes the first name, the numbers of the address , and the first part of the city location. It appears the setting are incorrect from the left margin. The rest of the sender information is printed and all of the Address TO information is printed. Presently the settings for the #10 envelope for the Sender are set at - Left is 0.39 and Top is 0.39.

What should the settings be to print the whole Sender Address?

Thanks,

Known bug, from my testing, both on AOO and LO.

It affects more than one brand of printer.

It has also got worse on LO, with any attempt to print envelopes causing a systematic printer jam both on my Kyocera and my Samsung MFP. Forget using OSX and envelope printing from AOO/LO for now.

AOO prints envelopes properly on my Brother Laser and Epson InkJet printers.

Search the forum with envelope sender for 47 posts about it and some workarounds.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials, the up to date Writer guide and the Writer Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

The chapter headings in the manual are:

1 - Introducing Writer
2 - Setting up Writer
3 - Working with Text
4 - Formatting Pages
5 - Printing, Exporting, Faxing and E-Mailing
6 - Introduction to Styles
7 - Working with Styles
8 - Working with Graphics
9 - Working with Tables
10 - Working with Templates
11 - Using Mail Merge
12 - Tables of Contents, Indexes and Bibliographies
13 - Working with Master Documents
14 - Working with Fields
15 - Using Forms in Writer
16 - Customizing Writer – Keyboard shortcuts.

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.

Showing that a problem has been solved helps others searching so, if your problem is now solved, please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject.
