Setting up Printer and Fax Under UNIX Based Platforms

LibreOffice uses the installed fonts of your system. In a text document you can select from all printable fonts. In an HTML document or in Web layout, only fonts that are visible on screen are offered. In spreadsheets and drawings you can select from all installed fonts.

Changing Printer Settings

In the Print dialog or the Printer Settings dialog, select the printer from the printers list box and click Properties. The Properties dialog appears containing several tab pages. This is where you can make settings that are used according to the PPD file of the selected printer.

If you have installed fax4CUPS on your computer you can send faxes with the LibreOffice software.

A dialog prompting you for the phone numbers to send the fax to will appear after the printout when printing to a fax4CUPS printer. Multiple numbers can be entered separated by ;

In LibreOffice you can also activate an icon for sending faxes to a default fax. To do this, choose Tools - Customize - Toolbars, click Add Commands and add from "Documents" the Send Default Fax icon. You can set which fax is used when this button is pressed under - LibreOffice Writer - Print.

Remember to create one separate print job for each fax, otherwise, the first recipient will receive all the faxes. In the \<emph\>Tools - Mail Merge\</emph\> dialog select the \<emph\>Printer\</emph\> option and then select the \<emph\>Single print jobs\</emph\> check box.
