LoadReturnAddress (XEnvelopes) "LoadReturnAddress" - Generates a block of return address text.

This macro is used in the automated generation of an envelope (as in MakeEnvelopeFromSelection), but can be called separately by you.

A destination address can be loaded directly into the document from the settings in your string values GUI ("!P" on your Under toolbar).
