layout problems


Likes # 0

Hi and thanks for any help offered.

Sometimes when I try to print an envelope, say a DL one in the landscape format, it shows up OK in the preview but prints at right angles to the envelope setup which seems to indicate I should place the envelope "landscape" style in the feed tray, but the DL is too wide for this to happen! My printer is an Epson Photo R240 and other times it seems to print OK......

Hope this makes sense to someone who can then help me?

Thanks again bobbyalec

Silly question, but have you got the envelope set as "Landscape" in the Page Setup and Printer options?

You haven't said which version of Word you are using but In Word 2003 you choose the way to print the envelope through:

  • Tools > Envelopes and Labels
  • Envelope tab and press Options button
  • Envelope Options > Printing Options tab and choose the feed method as needed for your printer.
