HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology - HP MFP Send Fax driver

If an optional analog fax accessory is installed in the device, and the device is connected to an analog phone line, you can use the device to send and receive faxes. If an analog fax accessory is not installed, you can send faxes by using a LAN fax service or an Internet fax service.
note:
If an analog fax accessory is not installed, the device cannot receive faxes.
Use the HP MFP Send Fax driver to send faxes from a computer to one or more network-connected devices. Access the HP MFP Send Fax driver by printing from an application and selecting the appropriate driver in the Print dialog box:
  • HP CM8060 MFP with Edgeline Fax for the HP CM8060 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology
  • HP CM8050 MFP with Edgeline Fax for the HP CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology
Other settings for the driver are available by accessing the driver settings.
This STR describes the settings that are available for the HP MFP Send Fax driver. These settings are located on the control tabs, the controls, and the control dialog boxes that are displayed through the driver Properties tabs, the Printing Preferences tabs, the Printing Defaults tabs, and the Document Properties tabs.
Most of the tabs and settings available on these driver dialog boxes are standard Windows print settings and selections. Only the settings and selections specific to the HP MFP Send Fax driver are covered.
note:
For information about sending faxes directly from the device control panel, see the HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology System Administrator Guide, which is available on the System Administrator's CD.

Figure : Paper/Quality tab
The Paper/Quality tab contains the following control sets:

Print Task Quick Sets

The first group box in the upper portion of the Paper/Quality tab is Print Task Quick Sets. Use the Print Task Quick Sets setting to store the current combination of driver settings. Print Task Quick Sets are either preset by system-administrator settings or user-defined printing specifications (such as paper size). The Print Task Quick Sets setting does not appear on the driver Properties page.
note:
System administrators can predefine Print Task Quick Sets for users. These administrator Print Task Quick Sets are defined on the server and are available to users, but usually cannot be modified by users. Users can also define Print Task Quick Sets.
The following selection is available in the Print Task Quick Sets drop-down menu:
  • Default Print Settings
Default Print Settings
When Default Print Settings is selected, nearly all of the settings are restored to the combination that existed after the driver was installed (the original settings). However, if the attribute combinations that are associated with the other quick sets have been changed or deleted, the original settings for those items are not restored.
Type a new Quick Set name here appears in the Print Task Quick Sets menu automatically if no other driver settings have been changed since the driver was installed, or if all of the driver settings match the original settings. Otherwise, the setting in the Print Task Quick Sets menu is the same label that appeared when the printing Properties dialog was last closed by clicking OK.
When Default Print Settings is selected, the following defaults are restored:
  • Paper OptionsSize is: Letter
  • Orientation — Portrait
By default, the Print Task Quick Sets menu is set to Default Print Settings. When you any of the default settings are changed and you want to save the configuration as a Print Task Quick Set, highlight the words Default Print Settings, type the name for the new Print Task Quick Set, and then click Save. Print Task Quick Sets are saved in the system registry. To delete a Print Task Quick Set, select it from the drop-down menu and click Delete.
note:
Store a maximum of 25 Print Task Quick Sets on a particular system. If you attempt to save more, the following message appears: There are too many Print Task Quick Sets defined. Please delete some before adding new ones.

Paper Options

The settings specified in the Paper Options group on the Paper/Quality tab apply to all of the pages of the document.
The following setting is available in the Paper Options group box:
  • Size is:
Size is:
The Size is: setting is a drop-down menu that lists all of the supported paper sizes.
Move the cursor over the dimensions label to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Click the dimensions label to toggle between English and metric units.
Because paper-size settings in most software programs override print-driver settings, it is generally best to use the driver to set paper size only when printing from software programs that do not include a paper-size setting, such as NotePad.
The paper size is applied to the HP Send Fax job and no printing occurs.

Document preview image

The document preview image is a line-drawn image of a page that represents graphics and text. The document preview image is always oriented so that the contents of the page are right-side-up.
Move the cursor over the document preview image to change the cursor from an arrow to a gloved hand. Toggle between portrait and landscape page orientation by clicking the image.

Orientation

Orientation refers to the layout of the image on the page, and does not affect the way that paper feeds into the device. Specify the orientation of the fax job. The two available orientations are portrait and landscape. The default orientation is Portrait.
note:
Nearly all software programs establish the orientation for the page, so the page orientation in the driver is useful only for the few software programs that do not set an orientation.
The Orientation group box contains two options:
  • Portrait. The top edge of the document is the shorter edge of the paper.
  • Landscape. The top edge of the document is the longer edge of the paper.
Click the document preview image to toggle orientation between portrait and landscape.

Services tab

To gain access to the Services tab:
  1. Click Start.
  2. For Windows 2000, select Settings, and then click Printers.
