I am trying to print envelopes, which should be an easy task; it certainly was with Microsoft Word. I would use my autotext to print my addresses,put my cursor at the beginning letter of what needed to be printed, click on my envolope icon, then Control P - printing accomplished without having an extra piece of paper coming out of the printer before or after the envelope. I also haven't found the proper format because my sender address is printing 1 1/2 inches below the top of the envelope, a #10 envelope.
Example with MSW
Dr. Joe Doe 2222 Deer Street San Antonio TX 78221 Dr. Jill Doe 4444 Medicine Drive #222 San Antonio TX 78224
I would have up to 20 envelopes to print at a sitting and would go down the line of names, which only took a few minutes with MSW. Why can this not be done in Libre? Why in the Preview are the addresses being shown as one line of text instead of three lines?

There is more than one way to print envelopes in Libreoffice: If you wish to do it from "Writer", which is the equivalent of MSW, then click the "insert" menu and click insert envelope; this will add an envelope format and let you construct your addresses in multiple lines and so forth, then just print as you would anything else.

@webrat's answer is close, but I've found I had to mess with the paper size, margin and address field positions to make it come out correctly, even though I'd specified the exact envelope size and feed position.
At least the text orientation came out correctly, which was my biggest source of frustration.

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >750 is welcome to improve it.
When I try to print a #10 envelope, my LO print dialog ALWAYS shows and prints dimensions for a C5 envelope instead. I have finally discovered that the way to get LO to print correctly is to click the "Properties..." button in the print dialog, select "Env #10" and "Landscape" in the "Paper" tab, and change "PDF" to "PostScript (Level from driver)" in the "Printer Language type" field of the "Device" tab.
