File Formats

ReplixFax supports a wide range of file formats, but not all files will translate to a fax equally well. As fax is inherently limited to low resolution, grayscale graphics, anything with color or fine details may not render properly. To get the best quality results, the preferred method is to export your document to a PDF and use the PDF attachment in the fax email. ITS can assist you in creating PDF exports of most common documents.

In addition, other document formats are supported and should generate a reasonable quality fax, including:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Most common image formats

Converting Office Files to PDFs

  1. In Microsoft Office, select File.
  2. Navigate to the Export section.
  3. Click Create PDF/XPS.
  4. Save the file to your desired location.
