Description kenneb01 2014-04-07 17:49:40 UTC
I'm using Version on Windows Vista SP2. When choosing a #6 3/4 size envelope from the page properties, the print preview for some reason shows a Letter size page. Then when you want to print, it acts as if it is a Letter size page -- no ink where the #6 envelope is. Confirmation: the #10 envelope has printed fine so far.

No idea? Me neither. I would appreciate some help. It's kind of frustrating to not be able to print that size envelope. The printer prints just as the print preview shows, but that's not the correct format.

I'm using a slightly older release on Fedora 19 Linux. When I select and fill in a #6 3/4 (Personal) Envelope and then pull down File -> Print, the preview shows a #8 (Monarch) Envelope. That is the selection above #6 3/4 in the pick list, and is the format that will be sent to the printer.

hi guys, please give an update of the current bug status using latest release.

moreover please tell the exact brand and model of your printers.

most of the envelope printing bugs I've seen on bugzill are about Brother and Canon printer. do you have one too?

I updated to the latest version of LibreOffice ( this morning. I still have the exact same problem with the #6 3/4 envelope. The #10 envelope file > print preview shows the correct envelope to be printed, but the #6 3/4 envelope file > print preview shows a 8.5" x 11" full page. The printer is a HP Officejet 4500 Desktop all-in-one.

The problem as described occurs for me in,  Build ID: 1:5.4.4~rc2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~lo1 with an HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color.

On Windows 10, Version (x64), choosing a #6 3/4 envelope results in a User format 6.5" x 6.06" envelope "page"; changing that to # 6 3/4 envelope in the Page style dialog produces a page with the right dimensions, but the sender and addressee are placed incorrectly. In the Print dialog, after selecting the HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color as the printer, the preview shows a #8 envelope. There appears to be no way to specify that the printer actually contains a # 6 3/4 envelope.
