I found that, finally.

I printed one copy of the envelope on a sheet of paper, it was easy to see how to load the envelopes after that (as it happened, left edge down, printed side up).

I don't do enough werp work to keep current on how to use it.

My current project is how to print my name and address on a page of Avery return address labels.  Again, I can't figure out how to print more than one label on a page.
