Default 2010 Beta envelope issue

The delivery address prints at the top of the envelope instead of the
delivery address area. How do I resolve?

First use the Add to Document button in the address dialog. Click in the
address and look at the style applied to it. The style should be Envelope
Address -- if it's some other style, select all the lines of the address and
apply Envelope Address style to it.

If the style is already Envelope Address, then it sounds like it's missing
the frame part of its definition, which positions the address correctly.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S to open the Styles pane, right-click the Envelope
Address style, and choose Modify. In the Modify dialog, click the Format
button at the bottom left and choose Frame.

The default definition of the frame has the following settings:
Text wrapping: Around
Width: Exactly 5.5"
Height: Exactly 1.38"
Horizontal: Center, relative to Page, 0.13" from text
Vertical: Bottom, relative to Page, 0" from text
Both check boxes unchecked.

The page at http://www.gmayor.com/changing_envelope_layout.htm has more
instructions on setting the style. It's written for Word 2007, but this part
hasn't changed for Word 2010.
