Preview and Efax
Authored by: imitch on Sep 01, '02 01:10:28PM

After seeing this hint, I went to eFax to set my preferences, only to discover that under the free service I cannot access those preferences. On a hunch, I decided to save some of my multipage faxes with the .tif extension.

Doing so, I was able to double click on the file, preview launched and all pages displayed perfectly with thumbnails in the drawr.

If saved with the .jfx suffix, it will default to opening with Graphic Converter and only the 1st page will be visable. Trying to change the "open with" application" to preview is not an option as preview is greyed out.

Apparently you can send an email to efax and they will switch your preference setting for you. Several people on the X4U mailing list recently confirmed this.

I tried this method to change .jfx to .tif and open with Preview. The pages opened allright. When you print pages, however, they are all flipped over and un-readable. I do not know how to correct this.
