I am trying to print a DL envelope using Word 2007, but it prints double line spaced. Any ideas how I can get the printer to print the address on envelopes with single line spacing please? When typing in the address, I can't get it to allow single line spacing.

If it's not displaying correctly in the Word Document, then it's certainly not going to print the way you want it to.

Highlight the text, Click on the Page Layout Tab, and check the spacing to make sure it's 0 Before and After. My guess is the After is set to 10 pt.

Thanks for your quick reply, but everything is already set in Word as you suggested. The problem is when I want to type an address for printing on an en envelope. In the Envelope and Labels window, I am unable to type in with single line spacing as the computer seems to be stuck in double line spaciing, thus not allowing the complete address to be printed on the envelope. Also, even though I try to set the default font and size for both the address and return address, the computer automatically reverts back to +Heading. font. Any help would be appreciated.

Change the line spacing in the 'Envelope Address' style.

There is a specific Style called 'Envelope Address' which holds the formatting for envelopes, including line spacing.

I don't have Word 2007 on this PC so I can't give you step by step instructions to get to Styles, but it's the same as changing say a Heading style.

Thank you Humar. I have now managed to get single line spacing on envelopes. I first opened envelope in page layout and then somehow managed to get what I wanted. Still a bit of a mystery, but success is what matters!

Hi there, I'm using Word on Windows Vista and I couldnt get the double line spacing to change to single when printing an envelope from the address on the letter. I have discovered that if you go to the 'Change Styles' box in the top RH corner of the Home page the down arrow gives you a 'Style Set' option. When that window opens you have a menu of further options. I highlighted Windows 2007 and then was able to achieve what I wanted. Hope that helps!

Thanks to all who have responded to my problem. My envelope printing is working OK now, so I think we can close this topic.
