[ACT6]   Choosing a Winfax Print-Driver

CE101 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
Applications:     ACT version 6  (2003)
                        Winfax Pro 10.0 (2000.02.14)
                        MS Office XP
O/S:                 Windows 2000 Professional, SPK 4  

I am frequently sending out faxes to clients through Winfax, from various applications.

Winfax comes with two printer drivers
(1) Winfax (Photo Quality) printer
(2) Winfax printer

If it’s a Word or Excel document I simply go to the File/Print menu and then choose one of the Winfax drivers from the list of printers.
I usually choose the Winfax Photo Quality driver. With the other driver, graphic images tend to get pixalized.
And in the Winfax configuration program I have chosen #1 as the default driver  (Winfax  ..  Tools/Program Setup/PrinterDriver) .

In ACT I also send out mail-merged documents through Winfax. However based on the quality of the output, it seems that ACT chooses the second driver, even if Winfax's default driver is #1. I've looked around in ACT, but have not found where this can be changed.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
