Printing Addresses on Envelopes


I almost never boot windows anymore - but there is one thing I miss

In msword I was able to print addresses on envelopes and/or labels

I have not found that capacity on fedora 13 with Abiword and Open Office writer

Is it there seomwhere?

Anyone wanting to produce labels should try GLabels; it supports all the major manufacturers' products and has a mail-merge facility.

For envelopes, create a suitable template in Open Office Writer or look at the Insert - Envelope option.

Cripes, would you believe I've been using OO for years and never noticed that? Thanks!
