I have noted the same problem. I also have a Canon MG5320 and LO 3.6.3 with Win 7 64-bit. I have previously printed a #10 envelope with no problems but since I don't do it very often I don't know where it got broken - but, if it is even an LO problem, the suspect is version 3.6.

OK - I did a few more experiments after writing the paragraph above. Output as a PDF document shows the same problem and conversion to a MS Word 20003 format and opening in MS Word 2007 also cuts off the left side. At that point it appeared to have something to do with the print driver not allowing the correct print area. What I have discovered is that the Canon driver seems to force a 1.47 inch margin on the feed end of an envelope. And, LO Writer does not seem to know how to handle it.

Here is what I have found that seems to work: * When you insert or make a new envelope document, in the dialog select the Printer tab and select the center print (second from right). * Go to the printer Setup from that same dialog and make the following print selections in the printer properties: Quick Setup - Envelope and Rotate 180 degrees The 1.47 margin is then moved to the other end. Note that the printer setup needs to be made from that insert dialog or else LO does other bad things with the format like adding a couple inches of 'header' space.

Not pretty - but at least a partial solution.
