When I print an envelope on my Epson Photo Stylus 870 using Word 2003 the return address and mailing address are printed about 1.75" to the right of where they should show up on the envelope.  How do I set the margins of the envelope or get the addresses to show up in the correct space?

    Modify the indent on the paragraph format of the style (Envelope Address), or just do what I do and create yourself an envelope template:

    What do you mean by Modify the indent on the paragraph format of the style (Envelope Address)?  I don't seem to like the tempalte solution.  It seems that Word should be able to print an envelope without a work around.

    Modify the style?
    Check the help file, which states:

    Modify a style
    If the Styles and Formatting task pane is not open, click Styles and Formatting  on the Formatting toolbar.
    Right-click the style you want to modify, and then click Modify.
    Select any options you want.
    To see more options, click Format, and then click the attribute— such as Font or Numbering— you want to change.
    Click OK after you've changed each attribute, and then repeat for any additional attributes you want to change.


    To use the modified style in new documents based on the same template, select the Add to template check box. Word adds the modified style to the template that is attached to the active document.


    a) You're choosing the wrong print layout
    b) Your printer driver is the wrong one for you OS
    c) You're running into the same problem so many people have, and I've provided a workaround
