Word 2007 Envelope delivery address set to auto printing too far to left

Hello EE,

I have Word 2007 and am printing Envelopes.  I am choosing to center the envelope the long way with envelope options set to Auto for the delivery address from top and left.
I have Envelope 10 (4 1/8 x 9 1/2) and that is the measurement of my envelope.
However when I print this the delivery address is shifted to the left.  If I set it to manually print 5 in from the left it is about perfect (override auto) thus it is about 2 inches too far to the left with Auto.  Has anyone experienced this?

    I just printed a #10 Envelope using the automatic settings and it started the address 4" from the left and 2.5" from the top. I can't see how using 5" would work, as the center of the envelope is at 4.75". I'm not sure what you meant by

    I am choosing to center the envelope the long way.
    I did notice, however, that the "Preview" box does not truly portray what is actually printed. When I set the preview image to what I thought was center, it printed just 2.75" from the left. You might want to check your feed method (Options-Printing Options tab) to make sure it matches the method you're using.

    When I choose #10 envelope it is printing at 2" from the left when it should center it (sorry I said 5 but 4.75" would be center yes)

    This wasn't the case for me but made me think about the driver so changed from 6 to 5 and it is much better
