I presume you talk about Pages from Apple and you have a problem using it? Have you tried any of its templates?

To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, to get a knowledgable audience and help making the thread easier to find for people looking for the same information, just click on the button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the button below your message.

Yes it is apple pages and no I don't have any problem with the templates and using it..

I have looked thru the templates and it only talks about printing on the envelope which isn.t what i want...I want to put the address on the letters i'm sending so the address appears in the window of the envelopes when I insert the letter inside ? thnx

I prefer to do this sort of thing myself by hand. If using mail merge, I put the fields on a certain spot, run the merge but only print one page. I then fold it and see if the information shows through the correct spot. If it does not, I go back and edit the original document and move things around using {return} and {tab} to get stuff where I want it on the page. Once I have it all working properly, I re-run the mail merge then print out the dozens of letters.

I will illustrate using my wayback machine's infamous reveal codes mode:
Code:
{return}
{return}
{return}
{return}
{tab}{tab}John Appleseed{return}
{tab}{tab}123 Some Street{return}
{tab}{tab}Beverly Hills, CA 90210{return}
{return}
{return}
{return}
Dear John,{return}
{return}
It is obvious you never intend to pay your past due balance to the jelly of {return}
the month club. For this reason we are dispatching a nuclear strike by our {return}
North Korea division.  Too bad you didn't pay when you had a chance!{return}
{return}
Have a nice day,{return}
{return}
Some Jerk{return}
Jelly of the Month Club Collections Department{return}
{new page}
....
It's been years since I did this but I prefer the manual method. If the manual method doesn't appeal to you, sometimes you can get MS Word templates for the envelopes you are using from the envelope manufacturer's web site. You might be able to open the template in either Pages or in LibreOffice Writer.

I use windowed envelopes on a regular basis. I have created a letter template with a Text Box positioned exactly where the Addressee can be viewed through the envelope window.

See below:
