Instant help in formatting addresses for envelopes.

Few computer chores are more irksome than formatting a name and address for an envelope. Even if a word processing program has a macro that does the job with a few keystrokes, the user still has to line up the cursor at the right spot, highlight the address and often follow pesky steps to prepare for landscape printing. AddressMate solves all these problems.

AddressMate is a memory-resident program, which means it can be evoked when running another program, like a word processor. When writing a letter, say, a user can strike two keys and the AddressMate menu appears and then strike two more keys and the program searches the letter for what looks like a name and address. It usually picks the correct block of type, but if it fails to home in on the addressee, a slight movement of the cursor corrects that. The user then can touch another pair of buttons and the address is printed on the envelope.

The program can be defaulted to search for and format the name and address for a letter automatically each time a letter is printed or it can be set up to do so on command.

AddressMate also automatically prints postal bar codes and labels; stores names and addresses, which can be retrieved on command; and has many built-in fonts for fancy printing. It requires a Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printer. The suggested retail price is $99.95, but it's available directly from the publisher for $69.95.
