Faxing a Document from a Computer


Faxing a Document from a Computer.

The procedure for faxing a document created in application software is as follows.

  • Faxing methods may differ depending on the application you are using. For details, see the instruction manuals provided with the application software.
  • Up to 512 fax transmission recipients can be stored in the device. If the number of recipients exceeds 512 after a fax job has been sent to the device, the last job to be input will be erased. Be careful when registering more than 512 recipients in groups or when sending a fax continuously to multiple groups.
  • The display may differ according to the operating system and system environment.
  • If an error occurs in the printer while sending a fax, send the document once more from the fax driver. The fax job sent from the fax driver for which an error occurred will be erased.
