|How WordPerfect finds a mailing address on your letter||
WordPerfect follows a rule to find the recipient's address on a letter:
Therefore, don't type a multi-line "letterhead" at the top of the first page, above the recipient's mailing address. If you do, WordPerfect might get confused. If you use such a "letterhead," use your mouse or keyboard to select the recipient's address first. A better solution is to put such multiple-line letterhead information inside a header, text box, or watermark.
Also, multiple "RE:" or "SUBJ:" lines below the recipient's address could be erroneously selected by the program instead of the address, since they might be the last block on the page that fits the rule. One solution for this problem is to get in the habit of using the Format, Paragraph, Indent feature instead of ending each reference or subject line with a [HRt]. These lines will then wrap to a single, terminal [HRt]. Another solution is noted above: select the recipient's address first.
