I recently updated an old LibreOffice Installation from version 3.3.2 to version

Problem is, that all after the update my document template isnt working anymore. In my template there is a faxnumber which the document should be faxed to. With LibreOffice 3.x these faxnumber was passed through the Fax Software (Actfax, Version 6.95) during a print to the Fax Printer. This isn´t working with LibreOffice Someone told me, that LibreOffice in newer (actual) versions handles prints different than in version 3.x - it generates a picture during printing process, so that Actfax Software isnt able to read out the faxnumber from the document anymore.

Is there a way to change this / turn this off?

My Software Setup: Windows Server 2012 R2 Actfax 6.95 LibreOffice

Thanks for ideas / help!

iplaw67: imp: I'm guessing that you are using the old print subsystem with LO3.x, that was removed a while ago.

iplaw67: yes, see here:
