How to Print to a wide envelope

I am trying to print to a wide, 22cm x 11cm envelope, which must be inserted into my printer in portrait orientation. I have used the Envelope facility in Writer: Insert -> Envelope, entered the addressee, set the format, and set the Printer Orientation to the fifth option, Landscape Centred. So far, it looks great:image description

My Envelope settings are thus: image description image description

I Setup the printer thus: image description

I then Print Preview and get this (OK so far): image description

Finally I Print and get this: As you can see, the paper is oriented correctly but I need to have the text-formatting rotated 90 degrees, so it prints vertical text on the envelope. When I print this, it looks exactly like the preview shown. image description

I repeat Insert -> Envelope, In the Printer tab I change the Printer -> Setup -> Properties -> Orientation to Landscape. The Print dialog shows the exact same preview, and it prints exactly the same.

How do I fix this?
