What are the supported file types for WiPrint?

Below are the file types that are supported by WiPrint:

  • Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint (see limitations)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
  • Postscript files
  • Text files
  • Web Pages (see limitations)
  • HTML files
  • Rich Text Files (.rtf)

Limitations

Below are some limitations to the supported file types:

  • Office 2007. At present, Office documents saved in the Word 2007, Excel 2007, and PowerPoint 2007 will not work with the PrinterOn system. To print one of these documents, you will need to save it in a previous Office format.
  • Web Pages. Additionally, there are limitations with printing web pages. Pages that require a username and password or use cookies to manage session data (e.g. a shopping cart) will not work with WiPrint. Additionally, pages that use applets or have embedded multimedia content (e.g. Flash) may also not work.

    These pages may be printable via WiPrint if they are saved as an Acrobat file. Please see What can I do if I wish to print a document not supported by WiPrint?
  • Linked Content. Documents that display external content will not print successfully. An example would be a Word document that displays a picture that is linked, rather than inserted or embedded.

What can I do if I wish to print a document not supported by WiPrint?

Some applications and operating systems provide the ability to “print” a document into a new Acrobat PDF file.

If your application and/or operating system does not support printing to a PDF file, there are some third-party tools available such as PrimoPDF. PrimoPDF is a free download available at http://www.primopdf.com . (Unfortunately, WestConn and Information Technology & Innovation cannot provide technical assistance and support for PrimoPDF).
