Default How to put graphics on envelopes?

I would like the full editing capabilities of Word 2003 to prepare envelopes
including inserting graphics, but when I go to Tools, Letters and mailings,
then envelopes, I get a small envelope sized area to put in the information I
want printed on the envelopes. How do I get graphics printed as part of the
return address?
Thank you,
Steve Koenig

Default How to put graphics on envelopes?

Sometimes an answer to a question can lead to a multitude of other questions.
I think this may be the case here.
First I had to ponder the following:
"To achieve this, create a paragraph style for the return text."
Then I was introduced to "floating" graphics and text as two separate saved
styles?
The goal is simply to print a graphic on the top left corner of the envelope
with the return address directly next to the graphic.

Thank you for responding but I am no closer to getting a graphic to print on
my envelopes.

Have you tried just creating your envelope as a document? You might look at
the downloadable envelope templates Graham offers.

Thank you for your reply Suzanne. I have been able to create a document with
the graphic and return address just as I would like the envelopes to look
like, however, after creating the document, when I go to tools, mail merge,
envelopes, I get an envelope with the default return address not as the
document I just created.
I tried to look at Graham's templates but receive the message, "The macros
in this project are disabled." I would much prefer to learn how to add a
graphic to an envelope than to be forced to use someone's template.
It is really surprising that it is so difficult to add a graphic to an
envelope.
Thank you,
Steve Koenig

When you create a mail merge, tell Word to use the existing document as the
mail merge main document. Sometimes it's easier to start with the document
and create the merge "by hand" using the Mail Merge toolbar. See

Default How to put graphics on envelopes?

If it was simple, I wouldn't have taken the trouble to prepare a web page to
explain how it is done.

If you want a graphic on *all* your envelopes then save that graphic as an
autotext entry called EnvelopeExtra1or EnvelopeExtra2. However, most people
want business graphics only on some envelopes or they may want to prepare
different envelopes for different clients. Then the further method in the
web page http://www.gmayor.com/Alternative_Return_Addresses.htm shows a
relatively simnple way to do that.

If you get macro warnings when using my templates then set Macro security to
trust installed templates and add-ins and set your security level to Medium.

If you create an envelope template of your own, then note that it doesn't
work with the the Envelopes & Labels wizard. It produces free standing
documents. From file new. The macro code which calls addresses from
Outlook on my envelope templates is explained at
http://www.gmayor.com/Macrobutton.htm

You can use the envelope document you create from your (or my) envelope
template as the basis for a mail merge by setting the merge document type as
form letter from the merge toolbar (see
http://www.gmayor.com/mail_merge_lab...th_word_xp.htm )

Hi,

Sorry, but Word is complex. Some things require more knowledge of its
complexities than do others. I guess for those of us who struggled in the
early days of word processing and computers to print an envelope, this seems
relatively straight-forward.

If you are going to use Word effectively, it is essential that you learn how
styles work. Until you do, you will be struggling uphill and it will feel
like Word is working against you.

Charles,
Thank you for the reply. However, I will say that when you say, " I guess
for those of us who struggled in the early days of word processing and
computers to print an envelope, this seems relatively straight-forward," I
had to laugh. I started word processing on a WANG before IBM launched their
dual disk drive 8088 and did the six diskette shuffle with WordPerfect. Now
that was straightforward from the beginning. Within the reveal code screen
formattng codes could be viewed and changed. If I wanted a fancy return on
an envelope, I simply created it as a document then selected paper type as
envelope.
I appreciate your suggestions to study the various levels of formatting
within Word and have begun this process. In the mean time I am not any
closer to getting a graphic on my envelope.
Thank you for trying to help,
Steve Koenig

Default How to put graphics on envelopes?

I guess you are one of us. I, too, started with a dedicated Word Processing
machine (Dictaphone). Moved to MultiMate, then WP. In none of these was an
envelope at all easy. WP has never been straightforward but it has one way
of looking at a document and Word has a completely different way of doing
things. Neither is especially intuitive. I haven't used WP since version 9.
At one time, I had WP macros I had written that were hundreds of lines.

Here is some general info on moving from Word Perfect to Word:

Word and Word Perfect work very differently from one another. Each program's
methods have strengths and weaknesses; but, if you try to use one of these
programs as if it were the other, it is like pushing on a string! You can
easily make a lot of extra work for yourself. In the (short) long term
(weeks rather than years) spending the time to learn Word will save you time
if you are spending any time at all (more than an hour a day) using Word.

See http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordperfect.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Genera...ordPerfect.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Genera...AndGotchas.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/RevealCodes.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Genera...Converters.htm
http://businesssoft.about.com/comput.../blconvert.htm
for information on Word for Word Perfect users.

For mo
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Custom...platePart2.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Custom...platePart1.htm
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Number...gExplained.htm
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Custom...latesStore.htm


Function Keys

In Word 2000 (or later) You can get the function keys to display in a
special toolbar at the bottom of the screen if you want (something like
pressing F3 twice in WP). The following macro will do this.
Sub ShowMeFunctionKeys()
Commandbars("Function Key Display").Visible = True
End Sub

Word's Extend key (F8) gives something similar to block processing.
The F4 key will repeat the last action, although sometimes gives very
strange results.

Formatting and Styles

Learn about Styles - really learn!
http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm I resisted for years and now
regret every day of those years because although that string was still very
hard to push, it kept getting longer and longer, and had some very important
projects tied to it! Once you understand styles and the Word concept of
organizing things into Chinese boxes everything falls into place and instead
of pushing a string, you can push a button that turns on the very powerful
text processing machine known as Microsoft Word and it will start doing your
work for you instead of running around behind you trying to undo what you
just thought you did.


Converting documents Word / Word Perfect

Some special characters in Word Perfect documents don't convert well to
Word. There is a macro to assist with this described at
http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/...html#macroword and can be found
at http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/WPSymbolConv.bas.
This was prepared by Edward Mendelson.
Otherwise, look at the macro from http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=212396
Use these on _copies_!

As for converting documents from Word Perfect to _use_ in Word... In a word,
don't plan on it. I would not recommend using converted documents long-term.
They will be filled with formatting anomolies that will get you at the worst
time. This is especially true of any documents containing automatic
numbering or bullets. Try recreating form documents in Word using the
following process:
In Word Perfect (if you still have it, in Word if not) save your files as
text files.
Use your converted files as references to show you how you want your
formatting to look.
Create a new document in Word and insert the text from the text file. Save
this new document as a Word template. Format it the way you want using
styles, not direct formatting. Save it again.
To use a template within Word, use File = New and pick your template. This
will create a new document for you.

Merge documents have special problems and should be recreated from text
files or retyped in Word. To convert data files, consider generating labels
in WP as a document, converting that to Word, and then using
http://www.gmayor.com/convert_labels...mail_merge.htm to get a new Word
data file.

Note that conversions usually do create documents that look passable and
print OK; the problems I'm referring to have to do with editing / making
changes, that is, using the documents long-term. (See below on reusing
documents vs. using templates.)

Conversion back to Word Perfect: There is a problem (in addition to the ones
mentioned for conversion _to_ Word) with Version 2002 (XP) and later of
Word. The conversion file only works for conversion _to_ Word, not from Word
to Word Perfect! Earlier versions went both ways. To fix this, you need to
find the old conversion file WPFT532.CNV from a Word 97 or Word 2000
installation and copy it to your new installation, replacing the file of the
same name. Note, the change making the file one-way was done as a security
measure. While I don't know of any problems the old file causes, keep the
new installation's file somewhere as a backup just in case.


Boilerplate and Forms

In WP a lot of people use macros to hold chunks of text - boilerplate. In
Word this function is filled by Templates, AutoText and AutoCorrect, not
macros. Follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebre...s.htm#AutoText for more
information on these tools.

You can use FILLIN and ASK fields or UserForms to query the user. For more
about online forms, follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms or
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...nTheBlanks.htm especially Dian
Chapman's series of articles. You may also want to look at
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFl...nesInForms.htm.


Reusing Documents vs. Using templates

General practice in WP is to have a document and copy and edit it to create
a new document. This is not good practice in Word. In Word, construct a
good, tight, template for your documents and use that template when
constructing new documents. Among other things, this can avoid embarrassing
"metadata" (http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/metadata.htm) and things
like surprise headers and footers from creeping into new documents.

It's a lot of reading, I know. It's OK to chunk it down and do a bit each
day, but I would recommend that you make it a top priority to do that bit
each day. In the (short) long run, it will save you both time and grief.

Charles,
Thank you for the reply. However, I will say that when you say, " I guess
for those of us who struggled in the early days of word processing and
computers to print an envelope, this seems relatively straight-forward,"
I
had to laugh. I started word processing on a WANG before IBM launched
their
dual disk drive 8088 and did the six diskette shuffle with WordPerfect.
Now
that was straightforward from the beginning. Within the reveal code
screen
formattng codes could be viewed and changed. If I wanted a fancy return
on
an envelope, I simply created it as a document then selected paper type as
envelope.
I appreciate your suggestions to study the various levels of formatting
within Word and have begun this process. In the mean time I am not any
closer to getting a graphic on my envelope.
Thank you for trying to help,
Steve Koenig

Hi,

Sorry, but Word is complex. Some things require more knowledge of its
complexities than do others. I guess for those of us who struggled in the
early days of word processing and computers to print an envelope, this
seems
relatively straight-forward.

If you are going to use Word effectively, it is essential that you learn
how
styles work. Until you do, you will be struggling uphill and it will feel
like Word is working against you.

Sometimes an answer to a question can lead to a multitude of other
questions.
I think this may be the case here.
First I had to ponder the following:
"To achieve this, create a paragraph style for the return text."
Then I was introduced to "floating" graphics and text as two separate
saved
styles?
The goal is simply to print a graphic on the top left corner of the
envelope
with the return address directly next to the graphic.

Thank you for responding but I am no closer to getting a graphic to
print
on
my envelopes.

I would like the full editing capabilities of Word 2003 to prepare
envelopes
including inserting graphics, but when I go to Tools, Letters and
mailings,
then envelopes, I get a small envelope sized area to put in the
information I
want printed on the envelopes. How do I get graphics printed as
part
of
the
return address?
Thank you,
Steve Koenig
