Looking to find if an envelope can be formatted and printed using Notepad++
…as in Word–I think that would get me away from using Word altogether.
Thanks for any information
welcome to the notepad++ community, @Bob-Delmar
notepad++ is not capable of doing so with it’s built in features.
you would have to first make a template of your envelope to print, with variable markers where name and address shall be placed.
then create a file, that contains all names and addresses, having one separated line per address, where name, address, etc. are csv
(eg. an excel export of an address list).
then you would need to use a scripting language plugin like pythonscript or luascript, and create a script to read line by line of the address text file, replace the variable markers at the source template and trigger printing for each replace loop.
this would be a nice idea to play around, but far, far more work, than to do it with the built in form letter function of microsoft word.
Your last line says it all…
