Can't print envelopes with Printshop 20

Trying to print a #10 envelope. Printshop won't print if I change the paper size to that of an envelope, says it wants the regular letter size. However, HP C5180 printer recognizes an envelope has been loaded and gives me a paper size mismatch error.

Hi.
you should try this even if it is different version and the printer.

First design your envelope in Print Shop

Now before printing anything go to the CONTROL PANEL on your computer (start > control panel, works)

In the control panel (CLASSIC VIEW) find your PRINTER ICON double click find your printer in the list, right click, choose properties, find PRINTER PREFERENCES button at the bottom of the new window and left click, make sure that the tab labeled "FEATURES" is selected. In the "RESIZING OPTIONS" box there is a drop down menu that probably says letter by default, select the down arrow and highlight and click "CUSTOM", Here you will give your envelope a name like 'Envelope Invitation' then you will add the size in either inches or millmeters. Once you are sure the names is what you want and the size is correct first click on the SAVE button by NAME and then click OK. Now click OK in the Features window. And click OK in the printer preferences window. Close your Printers and Faxes Window.

BACK TO PRINT SHOP
maximize Print Shop again and your envelope that you were designing should be there. NOW, select either the print icon or File>Print, Next click on SETUP Where you see the PAPER drop down select the down arrow to select the proper paper. Your newly named envelope should be in the list, choose it, NOW DON'T FORGET TO ALSO CHOOSE SOURCE=MAIN TRAY. If you don't click that you might print it on photo paper, I always do that.

Please accept if it is successfully done

Regards

I've had the printer for about 18 months with no problems. I need to print envelopes for the first time, and can't figure out how to do it. Any help out there?


Load the envelope against the right side of the back paper tray.
Load with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left.
Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope.
Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right, return to the left after finishing printing.
The Paper Thickness Lever is located inside where the paper come out of printing.
Specify the settingin the printer driver.
Select Envelope in Media Type
Select DL Env. or #10 Env.

Hi

Use the product software, also known as the printer driver, to change the print settings for your envelope size and type. Then, use the Envelopes and Labels tool in Microsoft Word to select your envelope size.

Step one: Adjust the print settings

-In Microsoft Word, click File , and then click Print .
-Make sure that your product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then click Properties .
-Click the Features tab, or the Paper/Quality tab.
-Select an envelope size from the Size drop-down list.
-If the required paper size is not in the drop-down list, follow these steps to create a custom paper size.
-Select Custom from the drop-down list.
-In the Custom Paper Size dialog box, type a name for the new custom size.
-In the Width and Height boxes, type the dimensions.
-Select the unit of measurement, and then click Save .
-Click OK to close the Custom Paper Size dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Properties dialog box.
NOTE: You must exit the Properties dialog box to apply your changes.
Open the Properties dialog box again, and select the new custom size from the Size drop-down list.
-Select the paper type.
-In the Paper Type or Type is drop down list, click More .
-Click the desired paper type, and then click OK .
-Select the paper source from the Paper Source drop-down list.
-Change any other settings, and then click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

Step two: Set the correct envelope size

-In Microsoft Word, click Tools , click Letters and Mailings , and then click Envelopes and Labels .
-In the Envelopes and Labels dialog box, click the Envelopes tab.
