I have a richTextBox with a long text that i need to send to fax using Windows fax and scan. this process works well if the text doesn't span more than one page, if it does it generates a tiff file that cannot be read

my code looks like:
public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            foreach (string printer in System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters)

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            linesPrinted = 0;
            printDialog1.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();

        void doc_EndPrint(object sender, PrintEventArgs e)

        void doc_BeginPrint(object sender, PrintEventArgs e)
            linesPrinted = 0;

        private int linesPrinted = 0;

        void doc_PrintPage(object sender, PrintPageEventArgs e)
            int x = e.MarginBounds.Left;
            int y = e.MarginBounds.Top;
            Brush brush = new SolidBrush(richTextBox1.ForeColor);

            while (linesPrinted < richTextBox1.Lines.Length)
                     richTextBox1.Font, brush, x, y);
                y += 15;
                if (y >= e.MarginBounds.Bottom)
                    e.HasMorePages = true;
                    e.HasMorePages = false;

the form contains a button, a richtextbox and a list box. when running, select the fax (from windows fax and scan - windows 7) and press the button.

if I print to a normal printer or a pdf writer is fine, it only doesn't work with the fax, am I doing something wrong?

Are you missing an ...endPage() call somewhere? I don't know about the one you're using, but a lot of print APIs want one to flush this page and initialise the next.

HI Peter, thank you for your suggestion, the strange part is that if I select a normal printer or a pdf writer it prints correctly, so I am starting to think that it is a bug in the .Net framework.
