Dear Libre Office Geeks and Users—
my new copy of Libre Office 3.6 creates business size envelopes that have a two-inch top header by default, resulting in a 6" total document height when it comes time to print. The ‘Header’ command in the Insert menu does not remove the header or alter the total document size. As we all know, a #10 envelope should be slightly over 4" high.
So far the only way I am able to print such an ‘envelope’ is widen the envelope feed guides on my HP Laserjet 1022 printer and print the envelope with the flap opened. Since the flap is not a straight side the envelope does not feed straight and the address text is slanted a few degrees, so envelopes printed in this program are unsuitable for business or professional use.
In my experience with all OpenSource versions of Writer—OpenOffice, StarOffice, and now LibreOffice, printing a #10 business size envelope has been difficult or impossible. Problems with this function always drive me back to MicroSuck to get work done. I would be most grateful for instructions or work-arounds for printing envelopes … and regular 8.5" x 11" sheets too, for that matter!
System: Mac Pro tower (model designation 3,1) running Mac OS 10.6.8, with gobs of RAM
