Re: [hylafax-users] Problems faxing a landscape PDF; Used pdftk to rotate the document

I have just now faxed rotated.tif (the one which wasn't truncated by
ghostscript) using the command sendfax -n -d801443XXXX rotated.tif.
The bad news is, it did get truncated on faxing.

So I am still nowhere near a solution I guess.
