Instead of printing mailing labels, you may wish to print directly onto envelopes. There are two basic ways to create envelopes, one where the envelope is embedded within a letter, generally as the first page (Insert in the Envelope dialog box), and another where the envelope is an independent document (New Doc. in the dialog box). In each case the addressing data may be manually entered, for example by copying and pasting from the letter with which it is associated, or it may originate within an address data source.
This section assumes the use of an address data source and, for convenience, a free-standing envelope.
The production of envelopes involves two steps, setup and printing, as described in this section.
