I have read something related to this in a previous post, but it seems it still gives me problems. I am trying to get the return address in envelopes to default to another return address. It is using my personal info in preferences. I have changed the personal info but it still pops back up when I bring word back up. No permanent change. Can someone help with this? This is my first question as I am new to mac-forum and to the mac world.
This is a new version on my mackbook pro and i originally set up the user information. It just doesn't save the return address i am trying to use.

After many avenues in search of answer...finally. The trick is to change your personal information in Outlook. Once you edit your personal information, it will automatically make the change to your user information in Word.
Thanks anyway

Here's how to do it in Word 2011:

Open Word. Select "Tools" from the top menu. Now select "contacts". That will open your Address Book application. Choose the address you wish from your Address Book application.

Of course the above means that you must have your contacts listed in your Address Book application. If you're additionally using Outlook, I believe there is also a way to use the contact list from there. However, I currently do not have Outlook installed so I can't test it.

Note that Word will always default to your user information. Any addresses or contacts you use in the return address are temporary. You can open and edit your Address Book any time by going to Applications and selecting the Address Book application. You can even change your own address if you wish.
QUOTE Thanks
