Word Tip of the Day


Print an envelope without printing its attached letter (97/2000/2001/2002)


As you may already know, you can attach an envelope to a letter or other document by choosing Tools | Envelopes And Labels from the menu bar and clicking on the Envelopes tab. (In Word 2001, simply choose Tools | Envelopes from the menu bar.) Configure your envelope as desired, and then click Add To Document to attach it to the beginning of the current document. (In Word 2001, select the Insert This Envelope Into The Active Document check box, and then click OK.)

However, if you've ever wanted to print the envelope without printing the document that it's attached to, you may find that your instincts deceive you. Word adds the envelope to the beginning of the document, so it would seem logical that you could print just the envelope by choosing File | Print from the menu bar, selecting the Pages option button, and entering 1 in the corresponding text box. However, when you click OK, you may be surprised to find that Word prints the first page of your letter or document, not the envelope. You could always tell Word to print the first section of your document, which houses the attached envelope, but there's actually an even easier way. When you attach an envelope to a document, Word considers the envelope as page 0, not page 1. To print the envelope alone, choose File | Print from the menu bar, select the Pages option button, and then enter 0 in the corresponding text box. (In Word 2001, choose the From option button, and then enter 0 in the From and To text boxes.) Click OK (Print in Word 2001), and Word prints your envelope without printing the document it's attached to.
