Re: [hylafax-users] Problems faxing a landscape PDF; Used pdftk to rotate the document
I have gs version 8.15.2
I have created a FaxModify file and put FIXEDWIDTH=-dPDFFitPage in it.
Now when I fax it, it doesn't cut anything off but puts everything at
the bottom of the page leaving top half of the page blank. Works for
us for now until there is an alternative solution.
Thanks for your advice. You are doing a great service.
