    How to print env after prt doc on letterhead (Word 2000)

    1 of our admins is trying to print an env after printing the letter on letterhead. What happens is that Word wants to print the env on letterhead. She is using Word 2000 printing to an HPLJ 5si with an env feeder and letterhead in tray 3.

    Printing an envelope from the Tools>Envelopes... dialog, or inserted into the letter? Usually, the envelope dialog remembers the last setting and sticks with it. Mine always prints on manual feed, for example, regardless of the trays set in the document on screen. At least, I think that's the way it works. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    The admin tells me that the env still tries to print to tray 3 Letterhead. Can she change this to use the env feeder and save the doc as a template. That way she would not have to select the print trays for each letter.

    Saving your document as a template would be useful if the envelope is in the body of the document. That was my first question. However, if using the dialog, I have no idea whether that would help.

    One thing to check: make sure the admin is making all tray settings using Word's Page Setup dialog (for the document) and using the Options... button (Printing Options tab) in the Envelope dialog. The actual printer properties (the Properties... button in the Print dialog) should be left set to plain paper or Autoselect to minimize waste of expensive paper stocks.
