I remember when I wanted to print on a #10 envelope with Word I just clicked on a template. I can't find anyway to print an envelope with writer 6.0. Is there a simple answer?

There are envelope templates included with LibreOffice.
To get to them ...
Click Insert > Envelope from the Menu bar
You will then see a place to select the envelope size/template.

For more info see Printing envelopes on page 154 in the Writer Guide.

I don't see Envelope as an option on the Insert menu in LibreOffice Writer Is there some option I need to set to enable it, or something to install?

I found Insert / Envelope has many bugs, see:


But found a simple and effective workaround.

Simply open a usual document, go to Format / Page, and from there change the Format to #10 envelope. That works! The page is correctly defined.

I then selected Insert / Text Box a couple times, and entered the return address and send address. Then select the boxes, one by one of course, right-clicked, and selected Position and Size. Then changed the rotation angle to 270 degrees. Then manually dragged the boxes to where I wanted, top right and centered respectively.

Then printed. Works great. Whew!

One other thing, I put the envelope in the manual feed of my printer of course. But if you have the printer properties set to double sided, it got confused and told me it was a size error. Not again! But it wasn't a size error. I simple set the document to single sided printing temporarily, and the envelope printed beautifully.
