I suppose that would work, but I'm disappointed with WFS's limited
conversion/rendering ability. Because I have files produced by different
scanners, various PDF engines and other programs, I need something that's
not so limited. I just want to select 'Print to fax' and have it sent.
Unfortunately, WFS is not there yet.
I'll have to buy something. I downloaded a trial of Snappy Fax
which seems to be working nicely so far.
Perhaps the next version of WFS will have the functionality I need.
