Hi all, I'm new here and hope someone can help me. Recently my employer bought me a new computer to replace my old xp model. New comp was windows 7 and I upgraded to 10. I installed the Lotus Smart Suite disks, 9.5 I believe and also copied all my work dbf, apr and adx files to a flash drive and copied to new computer. I have used Lotus Approach for bozillion years and do not want to give it up :)


1st problem I've run into so far which I hope is an easy fix. When I go to my apr file and click on the tab for envelope, I select #10 envelope as the print setting, using the bypass tray, click on properties again and make sure that page has the correct settings (never understood why I would have to do that) then click ok which brings me back to the print setting page but it has changed to 8.5 x 11???? Always reverts back to that, will not retain the envelope setting so I can print it.


Also noticed in old comp that there are saved settings in the lower right hand corner on the 2nd properties page but I have none in the new computer. I know this is lengthy but tried to be as clear as possible as to whats going on - please help - and thanks!
