    Most of the address lines are missing on Envelopes (Word 2002 with SP2)

    After typing a letter I print an envelope using the Envelopes and Labels choice from the Tools menu. The window for printing envelopes ought to have all the highlighted lines showing. It doesn't. It only shows the first line.

    I know how to prevent this. My Normal.dot template includes a Paragraph setting that inserts 6 points before each new paragraph. Address lines are therefore 1.5 line spaced. The Envelopes tool doesn't like this. If I remove this Paragraph setting then the Envelope tool successfully captures all the highlighted lines.

    Do I have the full picture? If not, is there a way around this bug?

    Well, if you change the formatting from 6pt before to 0pt before and line spacing from single to At Least 18pt, it behaves better, but it seems to be a very illogical distinction!!

    Good catch! Works the same way in Word 2000.

    Okay, it sounds as though you're hoping for a better workaround. The other way would be to use line breaks instead of paragraph breaks between the address lines.

    All the best solutions are simple ones. Many thanks, Mr Scher.

    My only remaining worry is to worry about why I didn't think of that solution myself!
