The File Type Attribute

You access the file type attribute through the Select Attachments Attributes dialog (choose the Attachment Attr. button on the Fax Composer window).

When you add a file to the attachments list, Faximum automatically tries to determine the file type. After you add a file it is a good idea to check the file type to make sure that Faximum is using the file type you expect. You should also view the fax to make sure that the file will be rendered correctly.

You normally do not need to change the File Type attribute. Only change it if you want to "force" Faximum to use a different file type. The following are examples of when you would change the File Type attribute:

Make sure you view the fax after changing the file type to make sure the results are what you expected.
