no matter what I do the address shows up about 5/8" to the right and below where I want it, and my printer can print edge to edge so why can't i do this?

Once you have the inserted envelope, select the return address text box & right click. In the Frame dialog on the Type tab you can change the Position settings. My result (printed to PDF):

Insert Envelope from Menu Insert->Envelope following dialogs for whatever initial settings you may have. Result is:

Select Return Address frame & right mouse click:

Thank you for your answer, but so far it has not worked for me. I am not at all skillful in using the writer (or any other part of LibreOffice). I can't find any place where a right click does anything in th dialogs I have. Could you rephrase your answer as if you were writing an Answer for Dummies response, please -- for about this I surely am a dummy. I'm using an old Officejet Pro 8600 which may make a difference.

Thanks again.

Thanks for the update! I had a little trouble getting the block selected, but I think I'm good now -- at least I was able to move the block! I'll test it and see how things go, but it looks like you answered my question. Thanks again!

Charley P.S. How (if at all) can I indicate that you answered my question?
