Description Alan C Whiteman 2011-01-31 11:40:48 UTC
Envelope printing under Libreoffice 3.3.0 is severly broken. When trying to print a #10 envelope via the wizard, the envelope gets formatted correctly but does not get passed to the printer.

All other type of documents, such as 8.5" x 11" Letters, print perfectly fine with default settings.

This bug is also found in OpenOffice 3.2. I was hoping that Libreoffice developers would have caught this bug since the version released is one level higher than OpenOffice.

My printer is a Lexmark Laser C543dn under Kubuntu 10.

Setting OS and platform to all, as it also affects OSX.

Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.

Printing enveloppes is better on LO 3.4.5 .
On Linux ( + printer HP Laserjet )  y can print enveloppes DL, but y have to change " Language to printer " ...PDF ( do not work) to Postscript . I cannot put that in memory.
I Try Lodev Writer 3.5 : idem

Please check if this bug is still reproducible with the latest stable release (4.1.x).

Update for Version: Build ID: 420m0(Build:2) Linux Mint 17

Printing Envelopes now works as expected using an HP Officejet Pro 8600 printer.
