After sending the first PC fax, this information is automatically displayed the next time you send a PC fax. You can change the fax sender information as needed.
Processing the Fax You can send your fax—either now or later—only when at least one recipient is specified. If necessary, you can place a fax on hold and return to it later for sending. The following sections provide additional information on processing your fax. Sending the Fax Now When you click Send Now, the fax document is placed in the Out Box folder until the fax can be transmitted.
Creating a Fax Memo A fax memo is generally a brief, one-page fax sent directly from the Desktop Manager, without using another Windows application. Operating directly from the Desktop Manager, you specify the same fax options as described in previous sections of this chapter. 1.
Document Viewer, the Include Annotation option is not available. Receiving a Fax An incoming fax is received by your L60 and can be uploaded to the Desktop Manager. The uploaded fax is stored in the In Box folder for your review. A flashing arrow next to the folder name signals that you have received a new incoming fax.
Desktop Manager. Save the fax in L60 memory If you set the L60 to save a fax in memory, the fax can later be printed directly to the L60, or sent to Desktop Manager when your computer is turned on.
Using the Fax Log The Fax Log contains a list of the fax activity (faxes sent and received) for the last two months. Each fax is listed with historical information, such as transmission status, date and time the fax was sent or received, the recipient of the fax, and the number of pages.
To print the Fax Log: 1. In the Fax Log dialog box, click Print. In the print dialog box, specify the desired print options and click The report provides a hard copy of the Fax Log information displayed in the Fax Log dialog box.

• If adding a new entry, click Add. • If editing an entry, click Replace. • To cancel without saving, click Cancel. Entering the Fax and Phone Numbers When you enter the fax or phone number, you use the applicable numeric characters and any valid characters that separate the different segments of the fax or phone number.
The dialog box provides the same fields of information, whether you are adding or editing a group entry. When editing, previously defined information is displayed. 2. In the New Fax Group Entry or Edit Fax Group Entry dialog box, in the Group Name box, enter or change the name you want to assign to this group.
Using a Group Address When you specify a group address when sending a fax, the individual addresses for the contained group are listed. If you specify more than one group address for a fax, and each group contains the same individual address, the duplicate address is removed.
Importing the Address Book You may have an existing address book, created by another application, containing the entries you want to use for the Address Book in the Desktop Manager. In this event, you can import your address book to the Desktop Manager.
2. In the Import Address Book dialog box, specify the location and filename to import. Then click OK. In the Assign Field Names dialog box, the address information is listed in columns, with a column title that should identify the type of information within the column.

Overview of Scanning You can use the L60 to scan documents from the Desktop Manager, or from a TWAIN-compliant Windows application. When you scan a document with the Desktop Manager, the ScanGear window displays. The available scan options enable you to set certain conditions for scanning.
Toolbar Preview Area Toolbar The toolbar provides buttons for performing certain tasks when scanning. In circumstances where a task is not possible, the toolbar button is unavailable, appearing dimmed. Clear Preview Crop Preview Area The preview area displays a preview image of the document you scan. A preview image enables you to adjust certain characteristics before you perform the final scan.
3. To close the dialog box, click OK. Scanning with the Desktop Manager You can use the L60 and the Desktop Manager to scan a monochrome image of a document. The resulting document in the Desktop Manager is automatically provided a unique system-assigned name. You can rename the document later.
Scan folder until you move or delete it. Scanning from a Windows Application You can use the L60 to scan documents directly into a Windows application that supports a TWAIN interface (such as Photoshop). Some applications allow multiple page scans, while others do not. If you are unsure whether your Windows application supports this feature, refer to your user documentation for the application.
5. Review the display of your scanned preview image in the scan window. Adjust the properties of your image as needed for the final scan. 6. Replace your document in the document feed of the L60. 7. Click Scan. The image appears in the display area of your Windows application.
• Black and White Black and white images are scanned at one bit per pixel. For applications that request a black and white scan and do not use the scan driver window, the scan driver automatically uses the Text Enhanced setting. To set the scan mode: 1.
To create a custom scan resolution: 1. In the Scan Resolution list box, select Custom. 2. In the Custom Resolutions dialog box, in the Name box, type a name for your custom resolution setting. 3. In the Resolution box, enter the preferred dpi setting. 4.
Changing a Custom Resolution Once you have set a custom resolution, you can change it. To change a custom resolution: 1. In the Scan Resolution list box, select Custom. 2. In the Custom Resolutions dialog box, in the Name list box, select an existing custom resolution.
Setting Preferences You can select a preference that governs how your source image is scanned. Text Enhanced is designed for use with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. This setting increases the contrast in the black and white scanning to promote the accurate recognition of characters in OCR software.
Because the L60 does not scan in colour, the Canon ColorGear™ Colour Matching option has no effect upon your scan. Setting Paper Size You select the paper size that corresponds to the size of your source document. If your document does not conform to one of the available sizes, you can define a custom paper size.
The Halftone option simulates the tonal range of an image with a precise pattern of lines and dots. To set the Black & White Option: 1. Click the L60 Tab. 2. In the Black & White Options box, choose Threshold or Halftone. Adjusting the Preview Image for the Final...

To remove the current preview image: On the toolbar, click Clear Preview. Adjusting Your View of the Preview Image To make it easier to work with your preview image, you can change aspects of the image display.
Adjusting the Selection Size When you first preview an image, the selection size is the same as the paper size you set for your source document. After your initial image preview, you can adjust the selection size of an image in order to isolate a specific area of the image for a more restrictive preview scan.
3. To draw the selected area, click Crop on the toolbar and drag diagonally across an area of the image in the preview window to select that area. The Width and Height text boxes display the new sizes. 4. To further define the dimensions of the selected area, in the Width and Height text boxes, type the appropriate values.
To create a mirror image of the preview image: On the toolbar, click Mirror. Rotating an Image You can rotate an image 90 left or right within the preview area to change its orientation. When you rotate an image, the entire preview area, including the rulers, rotates.
If you select black and white or text enhanced as the scan mode, the Tone tab is not available. In these cases, you must adjust the tone of the image with the contrast/brightness settings on the L60 tab. Features of the Tone Tab This section provides an overview of the Tone tab.
Toolbar With the buttons on the toolbar, you can access settings which affect different aspects of image tone, and give you great flexibility in manipulating your image tone before scanning the image. Contrast/ Brightness Tone Graph Viewing the tone graph gives you more detail about the tone setting. The shape of the tone graph changes to reflect the selected channel’s current tone settings.
Adjusting Contrast and Brightness You can adjust the contrast and/or brightness of a greyscale image. To adjust the contrast or brightness of an image: 1. On the Tone tab, click the Contrast/Brightness button. 2. Move the Contrast and Brightness sliders to the left for less contrast or brightness, and to the right for more contrast or brightness, until the desired contrast is achieved.
Changing Gamma Curve Values With the Gamma curve you can change the mid-tones of the image to increase its contrast, and enhance the overall image. When you increase the Gamma value, light areas are made lighter, and dark areas are made darker.
Adjusting Histogram Tone Levels You can use a histogram tool to adjust the tone shadow for the preview image. Using the eyedroppers, you can sample the black-point, mid-point, and white-point tone in the preview image and base the image tone settings on the sampling.
When you adjust the white-point, all tones in the image lighter than the selected white-point are adjusted to white. When you find a combination of tone settings you like, you can save the settings in a file and use it in future scanning sessions. To adjust the tones using the Histogram tool: 1.
2. In the Open dialog box, select the file name you want to load. Click Open. Using Tone Curves You can use predefined tone curves to automatically correct the most common problems with images: overexposure, underexposure, or too high or too low a contrast. You can also manipulate a curve in the Special Tone Curve area to create your own tone curve.
Using a Custom Tone Curve If you want to experiment with tones, you can create a custom tone curve. An effective way to create a custom tone curve is first to adjust the preview image with an appropriate predefined tone curve and then edit the results.
Mode For black and white scans, the contrast and brightness settings are located on the L60 tab. Depending on the black and white option you choose for your scan, you can adjust the contrast, brightness, or both of your preview image.
To adjust the brightness or contrast for a black and white image: On the L60 tab, under Black and White Options, use the available slider to adjust the brightness or contrast. These tone adjustments are only for black and white images. If you select greyscale as your scan mode, you adjust the contrast and brightness of the image only on the Tone tab.
Working with Documents in the This chapter contains information and instructions for managing, manipulating, and annotating your documents in the Desktop Manager. Managing Your Documents in the Desktop Manager ... 7-2 • Selecting Documents in the Desktop Manager ... 7-2 •...
Managing Your Documents in the Desktop Manager Once you send a PC fax, receive a fax, or scan an image, the resulting document is available in the Desktop Manager. You can perform a variety of tasks with and on your documents, as described in this chapter. Selecting Documents in the Desktop Manager To work with a document, you select it in the open folder, while in either Document View or List View.
Printing a Document in the Desktop Manager You can print a document from any folder in the Desktop Manager (except the Trash folder). 1. In either Document View or List View, do one of the following: • Click the document you want to print. Then on the File menu, click Print.
Working with Jobs in the Out Box Folder For each PC fax you send a job is created in the Out Box folder. The job currently being processed—the active job—displays at the top of the list. You can select a job in the list to review information about that job in the status bar.
Error An error results for a job if there is a problem with the L60, such as a loss of communication with the Desktop Manager or memory is full. Stopping an Active Job If necessary, you can stop the active job from processing.
Sending a Scheduled, Held, Failed, or Stopped PC Fax A PC fax job continues to reside in the Out Box folder if it is scheduled for sending later, if it is on hold, if it failed to transmit in the specified number of retries, or it was stopped.
Creating a Folder To better organise your documents in the MultiPASS Desktop Manager, you can create additional folders. When you create a new folder, you assign a unique name. To create a new folder: 1. In the Desktop Manager, on the File menu, click New Folder. 2.
To move a document: 1. In either Document View or List View, open the folder containing the document you want to move. 2. Drag the document to the desired folder. In Document View, the document is placed in the first available grid space;...
Renaming a Document or Folder You can rename a user-defined folder or a document except in the Out Box and Sent Fax folder at any time. Folder names must be unique within the Desktop Manager. Document names must be unique within a folder. Whenever you attempt to rename a folder or document, the system verifies whether the new name is unique.
Deleting a Document or Folder You can delete a document or user-defined folder when it is no longer needed. When you delete a document, it moves to the Trash folder. To delete a document permanently, you must empty the Trash folder. When you delete a folder, it is removed from the Desktop Manager window immediately and permanently deleted.
Emptying the Trash Folder If you moved documents to the Trash folder, the documents remain in the folder until you move them again to original folder, delete them individually, or empty the Trash folder. As you move more documents to the Trash folder, more space is used on your hard disk for storing the documents.
3. In the Import Tiff File dialog box, specify the drive, directory, and name of the file you want to import, and click OK. Exporting a Document You can export a document in the Desktop Manager, saving it to a drive and directory you specify.
Attaching a Document to Electronic Mail (E-mail) If you have a MAPI-compatible e-mail application installed on your system, you can automatically attach a document in the Desktop Manager to an e-mail message. When you select a document and use the E-mail command, the Desktop Manager opens your e-mail application, attaching the selected document to a blank e-mail message.
Scrolling Through a Multi-page Document You scroll through a multiple-page document to position yourself at the page that you want to remove from the document or where you want to split the document. As you scroll the pages in the document, the current page number for the document updates instantly.
Splitting a Document You can split a document into two documents. You can split a document from any page after the first page within the document. In other words, you cannot split a document on page 1 of the document. For example, you split a 10-page document, beginning at page 5.
Annotating a Document You can open a document to view its contents, and annotate it with notes, highlighting, stamps, or graphics (line/arrow, rectangle, circle). Although you can save the document with your annotations, any annotations you make are only added markings placed on the original document. The original contents of the document remains intact.
To open a document in the Document Viewer: In the Desktop Manager, do one of the following: Double-click the document. Select the document you want to open. On the File menu, click Open Document. Drag the document to the Open Document button on the toolbar. You cannot open a document in the Trash folder.
Features of the Document Viewer Window This section provides an overview of the basics of the Document Viewer window. Detailed instructions for using the various commands and components of the screen are provided in later sections of this chapter. Menu Bar Toolbar Annotation Panel...
In addition to the buttons, the toolbar also provides you with a drop- down list box that enables you to select a display size for your document. Document Display Area The document itself is displayed and modified in the Document Display Area.
Page Panel The page panel contains a number of buttons, one for each page in the document you are currently viewing. The page panel provides a quick visual indication of the number of pages in the document and a method for moving to another page. The page panel normally displays along the bottom edge of the Document Viewer window, above the status bar.
Changing the Document Orientation You may need to rotate a document for easier reading. For example, the document may represent a fax you received that was originally sent in landscape mode or was fed into a fax machine in an inverted position. The change in orientation applies to the entire document, not just a currently displayed page.
