Sending Faxes and Configuring LibreOffice for Faxing

To send a fax directly from LibreOffice, you need a fax modem and a fax driver that allows applications to communicate with the fax modem.

Sending a Fax Through the Print Dialog

  1. Open the \<emph\>Print\</emph\> dialog by choosing \<emph\>File - Print\</emph\> and select the fax driver in the \<emph\>Name\</emph\> list box.

  2. Clicking \<emph\>OK\</emph\> opens the dialog for your fax driver, where you can select the fax recipient.

Configuring LibreOffice a Fax Icon

You can configure LibreOffice so that a single click on an icon automatically sends the current document as a fax:

  1. Choose - LibreOffice Writer - Print.

  2. Select the fax driver from the \<emph\>Fax\</emph\> list box and click \<emph\>OK\</emph\>.

  3. Click the arrow icon at the end of the \<emph\>Standard\</emph\> bar. In the drop-down menu, choose \<emph\>Customize\</emph\>.

    The \<emph\>Toolbar\</emph\>s tab page of the \<emph\>Customize\</emph\> dialog appears.

  4. Click \<emph\>Add Commands\</emph\>.

  5. Select the "Documents" category, then select the "Send Default Fax" command.

  6. Click \<emph\>Add\</emph\> and then \<emph\>Close\</emph\>.

  7. On the \<emph\>Toolbars\</emph\> tab page, click the down arrow button to position the new icon where you want it. Click \<emph\>OK\</emph\>.

    Your \<emph\>Standard\</emph\> bar now has a new icon to send the current document as a fax.
