PaperCut Web Print

Web Printing

Web Printing allows you to upload documents to print when not on a UWRF managed computer, all you need is a web browser and be connected to the Internet.  You can also use Web Printing on any devices with a web browser that allows you to browse for files.  Currently Android phones and Tablets will work, however, iPads and iPhones will not work at this time.

Web Print is currently limited to Microsoft Office File formats (both Windows and Mac) PDFs, and Microsoft XPS formats.  If you need to print a webpage or from another application you can print or save to PDF.

  • Windows: Download CutePDFlink printer and install.  After installation, you should now have a printer available called "CutePDF Writer"  This "printer" works the same as a physical printer.  When you select the "CutePDF Writer" printer, any options you select, such as multiple slides per page from PowerPoint will appear in the PDF with that setting.  This can then be uploaded with the below steps.
  • Mac: OS X supports saving/printing to PDF without additional software.  After clicking print, in the lower left corner select the PDF button and select "Save as PDF"
