(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
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.)
resulting fax cover sheet
Tip: See also Memo, a
macro that operates in a similar manner to produce a memorandum page.
Instead of using the FaxCover macro, if you just want to create a
simple cover sheet with several "fill-in" areas, you could use a
WordPerfect table (which is
what the macro uses) with most borders turned off and with all cells
locked except the fill-in cells. You can then use <Tab> or
<Shift+Tab> to navigate between the unlocked cells and type data
into them. See "Locking and unlocking table cells".
You can also load such a table quickly and easily if you create an
example of it first, and then select it (including the beginning and
ending [Tbl] codes) and turn it into a QuickWord.
(v1.01) 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
FAXIT.WCM faxes 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. (No menu will appear; just play the macro after you have
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.
FAXFLIP.WCM (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.
