Issues with printing envelope templates

The following issue is from an ACT! user via Twitter:


 What are you doing to fix the problem with envelope templates? I love ACT, but trying to print envelopes, except #10, has been a nightmare.

Re: Issues with printing envelope templates

The easiest way to do custom envelopes with the ACT! program is to not do them as envelopes. The envelopes tempates are really just report templates with added restrictions invoked by the ENV extension. My method for cuatom envelopes is to do them as reports templates. Start with a landscape 8.5 X 11 page and then set the Left, Top and Bottom margins so that the printing area defines the custom envelope. Setup the envelope address fields with in that set off area for the envelope. Finally, if you want, change the template extension to ENV so that it shows up on the envelope menu.
