Chapter 6. Printer, Fax, and Font Management > Using the Tiger Fax Capabilities

Using the Tiger Fax Capabilities

In addition to the ability (if you have a modem) to send anything that you can print as a fax to any fax machine, Mac OS X provides some relatively sophisticated tools for using your computer as a Fax machine. You have built-in capabilities to send, receive, print, reprocess, and reroute faxes.

Sending Faxes by Printing

As covered in the section detailing the Print dialog earlier in this chapter, sending a printout as a fax requires nothing more than issuing the Print command in an application, and when presented with the standard Print dialog, clicking the cryptic PDF button in the lower-left corner of the window. Under the menu that appears, select Fax PDF, and you will be presented with an interface that lets you specify what number to dial, cover-page options, and other details for the fax job. Clicking the Fax button that appears in this interface dials up the indicated fax machine, and sends off your printout to be printed on the remote fax.
