    Envelope Address (2000)

    I want to change the default envelope address to accommodate longer company and organization names. I can make all the changes desired for a single envelope, but cannot save the changes to a default. I have made changes by modifying the style, but can't save the changes.

    Re: Envelope Address (2000)

    I went through this recently myself. Unfortunately, what you describe is by design! To make a permanent change you have to edit the style and modify the frame attribute, then save it to your normal dot. See Article Q212130. I would recommend playing around with it first by generating a blank envelope in a document and checking the measurements that work best before editing the style itself. Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

    Re: Envelope Address (2000)

    Thanks for the help. Everything works fine except I can't seem to get the width to save at anything other than 3.5". I keep setting a width of 5 to 5.5" and when I get ready for a new envelope, it has reverted to 3.5" where it started. My primary goal was to increase the width of the frame. Any other ideas?

    You're correct, although I'm surprised that you default to 3.5. I actually default to 5.5". Now I'm at a loss. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    The 3.5 is the default that was in the system. That's what I am trying to change. Any other place the default can be set?

    I really appreciate your help.

    I'm out of ideas. Haven't been able to find any place where the setting is stored. I suspect the registry. Maybe someone else can chime in on this. Sorry I haven't been more help.

    Hi erin:
    I haven't tried this but......When you modify the style, where are you saving the changes? If you want to change the defaults, you must change the style in the underlying template (e.g. normal.dot or letter.dot) for the change to take place in new documents.
