    Envelope add to doc/Preview (2003)

    There is a feature under the envelope/labels dialogue box that allows you to add the envelope to the top of the doc as another "page" or "section".

    Seems good but beware if you ever use the Preview option in the Open Dialogue box, you will see the only the envelope and not your document.

    Regards

    In my Word 2002, preview in the File | Open dialog displays both the envelope and the letter - see screenshot below.

    Dear Hans

    Thank you for the screenshot. Did some further trials on new plain Word docs and preview did show as your example. Tried it with docs created with new templates (Word 2003), so far so good.

    The documents that don't show as your screen shot were documents that were created using the company templates created in Word 95. Changed the compatibility for these templates to Word 2003 but didn't do much good. As most of our docs are based on these templates it might be that we have to rethink/remake the templates.

    Thanks

    Do the documents that exhibit this behavior have "Save preview picture" checked in the Summary tab of File | Properties? If "Save preview picture" is on, you'll see a preview of the first page only in print layout. If "Save preview picture" is off, you'll see a preview of the entire document in normal view.

    Thanks. You solved a problem I wasn't yet aware of I had it... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    Right after reading this a user called with the question why she only saw the first page in print preview.
    Your suggestion hit the nail on the head. Great timing!
