    Default Word 97:addressing envelopes

    After composing a letter in Word 97 and turning to creating the envelope, I find that although the address of the addressee appears automatically in the relevant box (A) the first line of the address is in the same font size as my letter but (b) in a different font and (c) the remaining lines are in a MUCH larger size!

    I'll be very greatful if someone can explain this problem and provide a solution please.

    I have Word2000 but this might work for Word97 also, if you doing the envelope at Tools - Envelope/Labels -- highlight the address you're trying to type and go to Options - Envelope Options and then Font for both Return or Delivery address where you can change the size and font for all your lines.
    If it is to be me, it is to be me.

    Many thanks cdm for your reply.

    The procedure you describe ceratinly works - although of course the underlying problem with the 'auto address' mode remains. Also, when I have the address set up and choose 'default' for the font in future addresses it doesn't 'lock in' the one I want - it keeps reverting to arial!

    Funny things these computers - or rather, software programmes!

    Word's envelope printing is and has always been very basic.
    A full description of it's capabilities can be found at http://www.uwec.edu/help/Word00/envopt.htm
