Fax Layouts

The Layout.htm, among other things, defines the size of a page. When a Layout.htm is applied, it is imperative that it is in the correct format. The layout file is always required when the same information shall appear on every page of the fax, e.g. a bank account in the footer or a watermark.



You find an example file with footing line in the folder:....RConn\Covers\examples


You have to take care that only "absolute" position descriptions can be made, e.g. no percentage descriptions can be made with column width.

For the centering, "align="center" is not possible in every case.





<div style="position: absolute; top:1030px; left:30px">

<table border="1" width="100%">


<td width="255"><font face="Arial" size="1">

The length of a page is approx. 1080px. When a footer is inserted (see example), the upper table height must be stated there (e.g. top:1030px).


For a test, the Layout.tif must be deleted in the cover folder and a new fax has to be sent by the Render Connector. A new Layout.tif is created.


If the footer is very high or if the text in the body is printed into it, the “margin” (printable area) can be adjusted in the ModMHTML.ini at ..\RConn\Mod.



The layout-file is deposited as letter paper at EVERY page. If the layout-file has a footer and attachments (Word, PDF-files) are sent, for example, you have to take care that they have an adequate margin for the footer.



When using the MS Office Viewer, display errors may occur, as the length of the page is not displayed properly.


The test should always be done with a fax with 2 or more pages.



When checking the Layout.tif please take care, that this TIF-file is really in DinA4-format!


If no "fax layout" is needed, the layout.htm and layout.tif in the folder can be deleted.
