Does the lack of a response to my question mean that it is difficult to set up a one step "print envelope" shortcut or is the solution so obvious that everyone thinks I am a total neophyte and should learn more by trying to figure this out myself?

Not a difficult task, but maybe not so obvious. You can add a toolbar item to either open the Menu to select the Envelope type or have it bring up a specific envelope type.
1. To bring up the Print selection screen: go to Tools > Customize > Menus and Toolbars. Click on the Commands tab > highlight File in the left column > drag Print from the right column up to the top toolbar.
2. To print a specific envelope type: you will need to create a Custom Command (with in the Menus and Toolbars option) pointing to the envelope type file (found in your 'Database files\reports' folder - ex: '10.env') > then drag that new command to the toolbar.
Here is an article with steps for creating a custom command: KB Article 14284

You are correct, it is not really obvious and there was nothing directly apparent in the knowledgebase either. I am surprised there isn't at least one specific envelope shortcut or icon supplied and ready to go.
Thanks again for your assistance.
