Fax-It-Yourself: Using Windows XP's Faxing Features 178 Figure 15.5. Use the Fax Cover Page Editor to create cover pages to use with your faxes. You work with the Fax Cover Page Editor by inserting information, text, and graphics fields. Infor- mation fields hold data. For example, the { Sender's Company} field (these fields always show up surrounded by braces) tells Windows XP to insert the name of the sender's company each time you use this cover page when you send a fax. With the Fax Cover Page Editor, you can insert fields for recipient, sender, and message data: · Recipient fields--These are fields related to the recipient of the fax. Select Insert, Recipient and then select either Name or Fax Number. · Sender fields--These are the fields you fill in during the Send Fax Wizard (particularly if you use the Address Book method). Select Insert, Sender to get a submenu with a whack of choices, including Name, Fax Number, and Company. · Message fields--These are fields related to the fax message. Select Insert, Message, and then select one of the following: Note, Subject, Date/Time Sent, or Number of Pages. When you select a field command, the editor plops the field onto the cover page. You then use your mouse to drag the field to the position on the page that you want. You also can format a field by using the buttons on the Style toolbar or by selecting the Format, Font or Format, Align Text com- mands. Text fields are basically just text boxes. They're used to provide captions for the information fields or to jazz up the cover page with titles, subtitles, and headings. Here are some techniques you can use with text fields: · To insert a text field:Click the Text button on the Drawing toolbar. Now drag the mouse inside the cover page to create a box for the field, and then type in your text. · To change the text in an existing field:Double-click the field and then edit the text. · To format a text field:Use the Style toolbar or the Format menu commands.
