    Envelope Dialog (97SR2)

    If you type an address into a document and end each line
    with a paragraph mark then click Tools>Envelopes,
    Word "picks up" the address and puts it in the Delivery
    address box.

    If you end those lines with new line characters instead of
    paragraph marks, the "pick up" does not work.

    Besides switching back to paragraph marks, is there a workaround?

    Hi Kevin,

    Select the address in the document first and it should work.

    Hey Bammer,

    Tried that. That's a bummer. Doesn't work.

    Hi Kevin,

    I could've sworn that worked! I used that method all the time. (Maybe that was Word 6 though - or currently on Word 2000. Perhaps someone using Word 2000 can verify this?)

    Now wait a minute on Word 97 SR3, if you add an empty paragraph after and include it in the selection then it works. Although I don't recall that being necessary...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!

    Re: Envelope Dialog (97SR2)

    Here's a new development:

    If I end the address with two paragraph marks (on the lines following the City ST zip line), it works! One doesn't!

    Mr. Smith[new line]
    1234 West Steet[new line]
    New York, CA 98765[new line]
    [para]
    [para]

    Of course, the two [para]'s are "picked up" too.

    Are you able to copy and paste it using the short-cut menu or keyboard?

    Hi Kevin,

    There really isn't a specific SR3 patch, many consider having the current Post Service Release that fixes ~60 or so bugs as Word SR3:
