Why is it so? As far as I remember the operation I do every day, the document should be loaded face down in the fax tray.

.
The face of the paper is the surface that we write upon, and that is what should be uppermost in this example. That is not to say that there are not other machines that are loaded with the face down.

Your answer, however, was foot. The foot is the bottom edge of the paper, which could be up only if the paper were loaded vertically into a vertical tray; and if that were the case, we would more naturally say 'load the paper upside down'.

Hi,

This is more a technical question and of the system. Some faxes work face down others face up. A fax is a photocopier with a modem.
