    How do you drag & Drop from subfolders?

    #7311

    drag and drop is standard in winfax as it is in many other programs, select the item you want to drag, hold the mouse button down, and “drag” to the sub-folder of your choice, release the mouse button. If you want to copy the entry (instead of moving it) then hold down CONTROL key while dragging and dropping.

    You can also select the entry, click on Edit, Move To or Edit, Copy To. Select the sub-folder and click Ok.

    sorry, I was referring to “Drag and Dropping” send log or receive log entries, I believe you are asking about a feature called the “Drag and Drop Depot ” ?

    if so, you need to drag the item you want to fax to the “Drag and Drop Depot” icon on your desktop. This item can be in a sub-folder located anywhere on the harddrive.

    What does this mean “This item can be in a sub-folder located anywhere on the harddrive”

    the item you drag and drop, for example, a word document called myworddocument.doc can be located in your C:My DocumentsWord Documents folder (sub-folder of My Documents)

    in windows explorer,find and select the file you want to fax, this can be any type of file that can be automatically printed, such as a Microsoft Word .doc file, or a .txt file, .tiff images, etc. Drag it to the drag and drop depot icon.

    Not all file types can be automatically faxed using “Drag and Drop Depot”, for those items that cannot be automatically printed, you need to manually print them by opening the document/file in the native program and then choose “File”, “Print”, Select WinFax as the printer driver and print the document/file.

    and example of dragging and dropping is shown in the graphic animation here:

    alternative method to fax PDF files:

    make sure winfax controller is active
    open the file in acrobat,
    click File, Print
    choose WinFax as the printer
    print the document

    depends on what you use to “print” PDF files. I assume your using Adobe Acrobat viewer? What version? I believe there may be a problem with the new version 8.0 but I have not confirmed it.
    *Update: using 8.1.1 and no problems dragging and dropping a PDF into WinFax Drag & Drop Depot*

    The general rule is if it doesn’t work in the drag and drop, you need to print it directly from the application that created it.

    it may be a problem specific with the PDF file itself, I’d recommend opening the document in Acrobat and then print to WinFax, it should print all pages properly.
