When I dropped Windows for linux about 18 months' ago, I moved to
LibreOffice and saw that LO Writer had inherited the same bug
from OO.

My case involved a standard size European envelope to suit A4 paper
folded into a third (two folds on the long side) - approx 22cm x 11cm.
IIRC, this is the DL envelope in LO and OO.

LibreOffice (and OO) give in this case an unwanted 2" top margin. Your
workaround to correct paper size, adjust top margin, shift the text
boxes, is too much hassle if you've lots of envelopes to do.

Yes, that workaround is too much if envelopes are routinely being printed.
I did the same thing, create a template for #10 envelopes, when I was on LO
3.x. Even though I wasn't making lots of envelopes I seem to recall it was
even harder to get a properly printed envelope than the steps provided in
my response. Creating a template was the only way to consistently get a
properly printed envelope.

Since I've been on LO 5 I've only printed #10 envelopes using the menu
features (didn't bring the template forward to the new installation) and
haven't encountered any bug. I was surprised to see it rear its head when I
did the testing to reply to Bill's message. Since it's happening to you on
a different size perhaps the bug is a component of the envelope size or
maybe the printer setting or a combination.

Regardless, yes it is a very frustrating bug to deal with If I was a
programmer I certainly would try and resolve that one. But I'm not. So
can't do more than identify, develop workarounds, and hope for it to go
