Default printing on 5.5" X 8.5" paper HELP

I am trying to print on 5.5 X 8.5 paper and I can not get the text to center
when it is printed ~ it is centered on the view but when printed there is a
huge left hand margin and the text is cut off on the right!

Word and your printer obviously don't agree about where they expect the
paper to be fed. Try printing on a full Letter sheet to see where the print
falls, then feed the paper there.

Go to Tools, Letters and Mailings, Envelopes and Labels, Printing Options,
and select the feed method. I assume you'll select one of the center feeds.
Click OK. If it automatically changes your paper size, go to File, Page
Setup, Paper, and select your size again. It seems it's a small flaw that it
re-sizes your paper just because you want a center feed. I recommend testing
it on a full 8.5x11 before wasting nice envelopes.
