PRB: Unable to automate faxing of landscape documents using embedded addressing



ID: ZTN1178

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax version and later


When printing a landscape document that contains embedded addressing to the Zetafax printer, the embedded commands are ignored and the user is presented with the addressing dialog box.


Embedded addressing (%%[ ]) commands are ignored by the Zetafax printer driver when the document is landscape orientated.


Convert the document orientation to 'Portrait' to enable the automation of these faxes. If changing the orientation is not an option, you will be unable to automate the faxing of this document using embedded addressing and need to find alternative (e.g. ZSUBMIT or the Zetafax API).


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem with the software versions given above.


For additional information on automating faxing, please see the following Zetafax technical notes:
