WebApps Printing

Since the WebApps service is running on hosted servers, the applications are not designed to print to your personal or office printers. There are two common methods for printing a file from within an application.

Printing to a PDF Document saved on the PASS or UDrive space

All WebApps applications can create a PDF document from an open file. These documents can then be saved to the PASS or UDrive space. Here’s how:

  1. Select File from the menu directly above the Word document. A sidebar menu will appear on the left side, as illustrated in the following image. Select Print from the side menu.

  2. Under the Printer heading, choose the PDF Printer from the Printer drop-down menu. This printer has been selected in the above image and is highlighted in orange.
  3. Click the Print button directly above the printer to start the PDF creation.
  4. A dialog entitled PDFCreator followed by the current version number will appear. From this window you can specify a document title and some other attributes. After clicking the Save button in the lower right it will prompt you to select the folder to which you want to save your document. You should save the document to your personal PASS (X:) or personal UDrive (V:) folder.

  5. Finally, you can download this PDF file to your personal device using WebFiles.

Printing to a PDF opened within your local browser

Using this method allows you to use a printer connected to your client device. It does this by creating a PDF and sending it as a link to your browser.

  1. Select File from the menu directly above the Word document. A sidebar menu will appear on the left side, as illustrated in the following image. Select Print from the side menu.
