- produce small "sticky note"-type
fax transmittal boxes on your current document
- directly fax your document from inside
WordPerfect using your preferred fax software (and return your
printer driver to the default)
- flip one or more fax pages (received
images) vertically 180 degrees in case the sender sent them upside
Recent versions of Windows have a built-in
fax feature. In recent versions of
WordPerfect, you can use File, Send To, Fax recipient

to your computer, or a fax server on your network, to send a

Versions of FaxBox and FaxIt
are included for WordPerfect 6/7 and WordPerfect

the WinFax software program, so the FaxIt macro will not work
with WinFax, either, if played in WPX3+.)
FaxFlip works under WordPerfect 8 and later
versions but has not been tested under WP7 or earlier versions.

FAXCOVER.WCM (v1.07; Updated 06/17/11) is a WP9 and later version macro that creates
a Fax cover page from a pop up dialog. The cover page can be
created in a new window or at the top of the current window to
make it easy to fax everything directly from your computer.
Several formatting options are available from
the opening menu. Default menu choices, name and address entries,
date formats, legal notices, etc., can be set in the User Modification
Area of the macro's code. (Simply open the macro to edit it,
make your changes according to the instructions at the top, and
then click on the Save & Compile button.)

places a small graphics box on the top right-hand side of the
first page (the box can be repositioned), similar to a Post-It(TM) fax transmittal
sticker. See notes at the top of the macro.
Useful when a standard cover page isn't needed but some identification
of the fax is desired.
WordPerfect 9/10/11 users can use FAXBOX9.WCM.
Users of earlier versions (WP6/7) can use FAXBOX6.WCM.
FAXBOX on a sample document
the current document via WinFax Pro (or any other faxing software),
then resets the printer driver back to what it was before
faxing. The one-click answer to faxing from within WordPerfect.

Important: See the notes in the macro's code for an easy, one-line
customization to make Faxit work with your own (installed) faxing
software. (WordPerfect X3 has been reported to NOT work
with the WinFax software program, so this macro will not work
with WindFax, either, if played in WPX3.) Just open the macro as you would any document, make
your changes according to the instructions, and then click the
Save & Compile button on the Macro Toolbar.
Alternative macro: Klaus Pfeiffer has posted a great
macro (free download) on WordPerfect Universe that pops up a
dialog to let you temporarily select another "printer"
before faxing the current document, or before printing the document
(or envelope) to another printer. It then automatically restores
WordPerfect to your default printer driver. For WP8 and later
versions. See here for the download.
(v1.02) vertically rotates the contents of graphic image boxes
180 degrees (flips images top to bottom). Useful to rotate fax
images, etc., inserted in a WordPerfect document.
