I am not scanning. I tried to print a shipping label from Paypal or eBay. The paper size is 8.5" X 11". I want to print 2 label in one paper. So, the shipping label will be smaller than the default Paypal shipping label. I just want to print out a 35% smaller size label. Do you have any idea how to do it? Thanks!

Of course, what needs to happen is HP needs to fix the 8600 driver so that it works with the Office 2010 tool in Windows 7. These workarounds are ridiculous, When can I espect t hat to happen? Clearly this is a universal problem.

On a MAC, before you are ready to print, go to FILE and down to PAGE SETUP - select the correct size of the envelope etc. Then remove the standard size paper, change the size to ENVELOPES in the paper tray, place the envelope...print side down...and hit "print" BE sure to change the paper size under FILE and replace the standard paper in the tray - IF your document is standard size.

I just tried to print an evelope from WP and Word, macros that worked fine in my HP7700. All these work-arounds are ridiculously coumberson. The shortcut function in both WP and Word are meant to make it quick and easy to print 1 to 10 envelopes, just by selcting the name and address block, puting in the envelope(s) and printing. Seems HP is remiss in not making this work in the new software. I was just saying to an HP tech that HP software had gotten better in recent years. Maybe I'm wrong?
Having to change paper, set one tray for envelopes only, take many steps, all that defeats the point! Maybe i should send this printer back andkeep my old one.

Envelopes printing using HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus:

Feed the media to the printer according to the icon inside the printer tray

O K just had the same problem.. and perhaps this will help all.. as it worked perfectly for me. You have to take all of the paper out of the tray. Then you reset the paper tabs in the tray to fit your envelope. There are two side ones and a back one, they both have to be set around the envelope. Then you can go to Microsoft word, go to mailings - envelopes, and put in the required address, all set with the info you want on the envelope , and hit print. perfect .. a little hassle pulling out the paper... you can load multiple envelopes in at a time. hope this helps

Read through a bunch of replies and the last reply I read was right on the money. If and when you do take the paper out of the paper tray, you will see an envelope icon and it will show you how to correctly position the envelope in the tray in order for it to print properly. You do have to adjust the paper guides but this same procedure is the same on my Epson Workforce 545/645 printer. Thankfully, I don't have to print envelopes that often so to me, it isn't a big deal.

Totally agree with bobsc (et al). Adjusting the media/paper guides makes all the difference in the world. For even more help, consult the online User's Guide (that's how I finally stopped wasting envelopes). For all you that are frustrated with your 8600, don't give up! Consult the User's Guide! Promise it will make all the difference! 8600 User's Guide

Sorry, I have, for the last year, adjusted the guides endlessly. When trying to print 8x10 envelopes I keep getting the same error message ... unless I print from my desktop which is directly connected to both my server and the 8600. From the direct connect it seems to print correctly all the time. From the network it errors out all the time unless I go into printer settings in Devices and Printers and reset to 1 sided printing. Works fine then.

As one who had raised this question, I now have this advice: Every situation is different, and the printer drivers just don't work for everty contingency. But certainly baing careful to choose the cirrect tray (if you have two, as I do) and to check all of the settings, can always help. Given the vast number of printers, it is not surprising that Microsoift Office cannot have settings that work for every one. And given the number of opertaing systems, the HP software can do just so much. By the way, I find it easier to change settings when using a Mac.
