Faxing from Windows XP Fax Wizard

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

Does anyone know how to fax Word documents, PDF files, etc with only ONE
cover page??? It seems if I want to fax 2 items, the Fax Wizard automatically
creates a cover page for EACH item I'm faxing. So I will fax my cover letter,
but then it creates a separate cover page for my resume. I just need one
cover page for these 2. Thanks!

    Not supported.
    You can only do this by faxing from Outlook.

    I think maybe you misunderstood. I think the OP just wants to know how
    to send without a cover page--that is, send the first fax (a cover
    letter with a cover page) and then another (the résumé without a cover
    page)--two transmissions.
  3. Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

    Perhaps, but that answer would be obvious. Printing to the Fax Printer
    always provides the option not to include a cover page.
    I rather suspect the OP is trying to send more than one document with only
    one cover page. If so, my answer stands unless you can provide another.

    No need to get snippy. I don't use the fax function, and you're the
    putative expert. I saw something in the OP that perhaps you might have
    misinterpreted. And you of all people should know that the bloody
    obvious isn't, for some people.

    Sorry you thought I was being snippy. I wasn't. Like you, I was just trying
    to read between the lines of a very unclear post and had to make certain
    assumptions. Your assumption may be correct. I just know that most posters
    who ask similar questions are trying to figure out how to send multiple
    documents in one transmission and I haven't found a way to for XP Fax to do
    that. I thought maybe you had.

    I think I can supply a way to send 2 or more documents with just
    one cover page. Lets say the files to send are file1.doc, file2.gif, and
    file3.jpg. I would copy these 3 files to a new folder named faxjunk or
    whatever. They should show up in Windows Explorer in the folder in top down
    order of 1,2 and 3. Highlight all 3 files, right click on the 3 higlighted
    folders, choose Print and print to the Fax. In the Send Fax thingee, select
    your cover page and enter needed info, click on Preview before finishing and
    you should see the cover page and the 3 other pages in the Fax Viewer.

    That context menu does not provide the option to select your fax printer. It
    will only print to your default printer.

    Hi, All;
    That got me curious. I set my fax printer as the default. No dice:
    right-click> print brought up the picture printing wizard (I had an Excel
    file, a JPEG, and a TIF). Okay. I dragged all three files (at once) onto the
    fax printer icon. It asked me if I was sure I wanted to print multiple files.
    I clicked yes, and it brought up consecutive wizards, one for each file. It
    appears that Russ is correct.
    Regards,
    Ian.

    It works for me. What is your "picture printing wizard?" HP Photo,
    Adobe? Russ didn't say that it didn't work, only that right clicking a file
    and selecting PRINT will only print to the default printer.Give me your fax
    number, set a date and time, and I will fax you 3 pages of 3 different files
    with a cover page.

    Hi, Rancy Snyder;
    It says "Welcome to the Photo Printing Wizard." It is part of XP I believe,
    and is triggered when the file under the cursor is an image (strike that,
    some kinds of images--a TIF got the fax wizard). If, with all three files
    selected, I right click the Excel file instead, I get the fax wizard, cancel
    that, and I get a fax wizard for the TIF followed by a Photo wizard for the
    GIF. Selecting three Word documents got me similar results: three separate
    fax wizards. Of course, one could be sent with a cover page, and the others
    without, and also, one could paste two of the documents into the third and
    fax the resulting single file (and I don't think I'd be able to tell from the
    resulting fax if that is what you did.) If you are able to send multiple
    files as one fax, I would be interested to hear not whether, but how; because
    following your directions did not give me the results you described: "click
    on Preview before finishing and you should see the cover page and the 3 other
    pages in the Fax Viewer." I get one page (one page docs) and two more
    wizards. I didn't see anything in Fax Console Help about it.
    Regards,
    Ian.

    For IanRoy,
    To assemble several different documents to send in one fax transmission
    with XP Fax Console:

    It is best to convert the files into a .tif file. If you can open them
    in Paint or some other graphic program, then they should be able to be saved
    in the .TIF format. If they can't be opened and converted to .tif then this
    can be accomplished by printing the file to the Fax. When the Fax Wizard
    comes up, you can enter any name in the to box. DO NOT USE A COVER PAGE. I
    then type my own phone number into the proper box. If things go wrong, the
    worse that will happen is that it will try to send the fax to my fax number
    and it will get a busy signal. If this happens, viola, the file will now be
    in the Fax Console Outbox in the form of a .tif. View it in the Image and
    Fax Viewer and copy it to C:\junkfax or whatever you want to call your
    working fax folder. Right away, rename the file as perhaps doc1.tif. If you
    don't rename it and leave it in the long name that the Fax Console assigned
    to it, it might get deleted when you close the Viewer as the Fax Console
    treats it as a temporary file.
    If you haven't screwed up and sent the fax by mistake to your own phone
    number, click to Preview the fax. Then copy it as described above while it
    is displayed in the Viewer. Also, save the file and rename it as described
    above. After it is renamed, cancel the fax and now find you 2nd document and
    go through the same procedure again, perhaps naming the 2nd file as
    doc2.tif. Once you have 3 or 4 files in your working folder, highlight the
    files, then right click on them and select PRINT. Fax should be setup as
    your default printer. Now add your cover page in the fax wizard and in the
    Viewer you should see your cover page followed by the 2 or 3 other files
    that you had highlighted. You can now SEND the fax and it should go through
    with all of the documents.

    I sometimes do all of this another way if I can get the files into
    Paint. First I set up my word processor with all page margins of zero. I now
    have a full page to display a scanned graphic page or .pdf file. I then type
    in on my word processor the info that would go on a cover sheet. Thus I make
    up my own cover sheet and save it as a template. After putting in the fields
    I highlight all of the entries and then use paragraph format to indent .75
    inch. Thus the info is formatted neatly on the page. I then insert a page
    break at the last of my text. Once the document that I want to include is in
    Paint, I use Select All and copy it. I then past it into what is page 2 of
    my word processor document. I then insert another page break if I will add
    more pages and repeat the Paint routine. When I have everything in my word
    processor document, I Print to the Fax, use a cover page and View it in the
    Fax Viewer before sending the several pages off.

    Hope this works for you.

    Hi Rancy. I'm kind of new a computers, so please bare with me. I have read
    all of the posts regarding faxing but I'm a little confused. I have been
    able to fax OK using the Fax Console with the Fax Wizard. My problem is that
    I have not been able to fax without a Cover Page. I have an All In One
    Printer A920 by Dell. This is my default printer. When the Fax Wizard comes
    up it always sends the faxes with a Cover Page. I have looked but I do not
    see an Option to fax without one. I read the above information where it
    says " Printing from the Fax Printer always provides the option not to
    include a Cover Page." Where do I find this option? How is the Fax Printer
    different from the Default Printer? How can I fax from the Fax Wizard using
    my Default Printer without a Cover Page? I would really appreciate your
    help. Amy.

    Amy, if you want to send me your e-mail address, I will send you a .bmp
    graphic file that shows the window that comes up in the Fax Wizard that
    contains the box to uncheck so that you can send a fax without a cover page.
    My e-mail address is
    rancynospam@bellsouth.net . Just remove the "nospam" from this e-mail
    address and it will come through fine.
    Rancy.

    Hi Randy. I sent you my Email address a couple of days ago but I have not
    received a response. I went back to the Fax Wizard to the Cover Page window.
    There is a box with a check mark that says " Select a Cover page template
    with the following information" then it gives you a menu of Genereic,
    Confidential ect. This box with the check mark is gray. In other words I
    cannot change the check mark. All I want to do is send a fax without a Cover
    Page. There is no window that gives you this option. I have Windows XP Home.

    I have sent you e-mail Amy. Sorry about the delay. If anyone on here
    has any experience with that check box staying grayed out after printing to
    the Fax from within a word processor, I would be interested in hearing about
    their experiences.

    That behavior is only seen when using the Fax Wizard from the Start menu,
    not when printing to the Fax Printer.
    If it is seen when printing to the Fax Printer, that behavior cannot be
    reproduced and has not been reported.

    OK. So how do you go to the Fax Printer directly without going from the Start
    menu?
