Use the envelope feeder on LaserJet 4000s
Authored by: scottkitts on Oct 14, '05 11:16:02AM

Yep, other printers are effected too. Autoselect doesn't seem to work for me, though. My LaserWriter Pro 600 lost the ability to select the envelope feeder in Tiger while printing (worked in 10.3). There's something about OS X's ability to keep a file's page setup associated with a file throughout the print process that bungs up the process (as near as I can tell). The PDF for my printer specifically excludes the use of any paper layout except envelopes from printing to the envelope feeder; if you're good at editing PDFs, you might try removing that restriction to see if that works.

I've given up trying to get the GUI to print envelopes properly. Instead, I've created a PDF workflow that uses Terminal to access CUPS to print directly, as CUPS doesn't seem to have any problems printing envelopes (works perfectly every time).
