Thanks Mark. I have been printing address on envelopes for years w/o any problems. All at once I get blank envelopes- no type. All other printing works just fine. I can print anOffice saved envelope using Mac Pages. I think I may have to reinstall MS Office unless someone knows a fix.

but one thing you could try for fun is to put in a full sheet of paper instead of an envelope and see if it is printing out the address in another spot.

Have you run any of the updates to Office 2008?

If so, did one of them coincide with this printing behavior?

I was able to figure it out. I checked " drawing objects " in the print preferences and my problem was solved. Thanks to everyone for their help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
