Fax Viewer

FFVIEWER [-m mbxname | -n mbxname | -s mbxname | -a mbxname]

FFVIEWER allows you to display, print or perform simple editing on fax format files. It supports the fax file formats of all of the fax boards which can be used with CopiaFacts, including B4 and A3 sizes. Documents can be viewed in variety of sizes, and can be printed either full-page or with a number of reduced images (thumbnails) per sheet. Viewed documents can be rotated and inverted.

FFVIEWER can load files for viewing using a normal browse dialog, by infobox number (using $image_locn in a user profile), by searching for incoming fax mail, or by drag-and-drop from Explorer. Fax mail files can be moved or copied to another directory for a particular recipient. Command-line switches control fax mail viewing options

A document being viewed can be saved in a different supported file format, with or without cropping. Cropping allows a 'short' cover sheet header to be created from part of a full-page document, or the header strip to be removed from a document which has been faxed in.

FFVIEWER can also originate a fax or e-mail transmission of the document being viewed, with or without cover sheet and optional attachments.

Before saving a document you may add annotations. A set of annotations containing @variable expansions can also be saved as a template (.GCT file) for creating customized graphical cover sheets, or for adding a header line to faxes using the $apply_gct FS command for outbound faxes or the $apply_gct MBX command for incoming faxes:

Annotations can optionally support Unicode but to do this, the $unicode configuration command must specify UTF8 as the encoding for GCT files:
