Home > Technical Articles > Create a fax using your scanner


On the main screen, locate and click on the Scan button

This will bring up the Scan-to-Fax screen:

Click the Scan a Page button to scan the first page. Continue this process until you have scanned all of your pages.

Each time you scan a page, it is added to a list. A small preview window of the scanned pages is shown to the right of the list. The pages may be re-arranged or deleted. When done, all pages will be saved as a single fax file.

Designate the recipient, optionally add a cover sheet and click Save when done. The fax just created with scan-to-fax is shown in the Outbox, ready to send.

Please see the Scan-to-Fax slideshow for a full set of screenshots depicting the scan-to-fax process.

 



In addition to creating a new fax from the Essential Scan-toFax dialog box, you also have the following two choices:

Save it to the Fax Enclosures Folder

Instead of selecting the Save it to the Outbox option, you can also choose the Save it to the Fax Enclosures folder, for later use. This will create a Fax Enclosure - a file in ready to use fax format, which you can use to create future faxes.

Append to a fax already in the Outbox

Instead of selecting the Save it to the Outbox option, you can also choose the Append it to a fax already in the Outbox option. If you choose this option, you are presented with a list of faxes already in the Outbox, to which you can append the current scanned pages.
