First, thanks to everyone who offered ideas on my earlier post on this
subject. In reading other posts, it appears that the inability of WordPerfect
for Linux to print envelopes is not limited to me or other users but could be
a major flaw in the software.
When you order an envelope in WP, a three-window menu appears. The
return address goes in the first window, the addressee goes in the second
while the third window shows the envelope being prepared. When you hit the
'print' button, a number of smaller windows appears show the progress of the
print job. Now, the envelope should go through the printer and come out
complete with both addresses printed on it.
One of two things have happened when the print button is hit: either
the printer does nothing (as if it never received the 'print' order) or the
printer processes the envelope but doesn't print anything on it (as if the
envelope was blank).
I think this is a flaw that should be corrected by Corel. To that end, I
have written to Corel on this item. If you have WordPerfect for Linux and
can't print envelopes (as described above), would you please let Corel know
so they can address this problem.
