When you print a custom envelope to a Hewlett Packard (HP) 5si MX, or HP 5n printer from Word 2000 running on Windows NT 4.0, your text may be printed in portrait rather than landscape orientation.


This problem occurs when you print a custom envelope with a height greater than 4.25 inches.


If you have an HP 5n printer, downloading and installing the updated HP 5n NT printer driver (version 3.71) corrects the problem.

NOTE: If you have an HP 5si MX printer, this does not correct the problem.
