Graphical Customization Template [GCT, GPT]

The Graphical Customization Template files are generated and maintained by the FFVIEWER program. Some applications may, however, need to create or modify these files externally and for this purpose the commands available are briefly documented in this manual.

To make use of a GCT file for fax-on-demand applications, specify it in a $cover_sheet command in the user profile.

To use a GCT file in a broadcast, place its name on a $fax_cover or $fax_filename command in the FS file generated for each broadcast item.

To use a GPT file in a broadcast, place its name on an $email_attach command in the FS file generated for each broadcast item.

An alternate way of specifying graphical customization (for TIF files only) is in a CopiaFacts GTT file. This is a standard TIFF file with the GCT data embedded in a spare tag value. As such, the GCT data can only be edited though the use of FFVIEWER.
