4.16.1 Editing in Image Mode

The Image Mode allows to add annotations to images (=received faxes). You can also mark an area of an

image and cut or copy it, and paste it into another image. You can view and edit your messages in either
Text or Image Mode. Select Text/Image Mode from the View menu or click the corresponding icon on the

toolbar to switch modes. Images, like an incoming fax, can only be edited in image mode, text parts, usually

used in internal messages, can only be edited in text mode.

4.16.2 Editable Objects

Only embedded image objects are editable. Text objects and overlays cannot be edited. If a page contains

editable and non-editable objects then the non-editable parts of the page are marked gray when the page is

changed (by pasting text or image or by inserting a new annotation).
