Print Options

The printers are set up with default configuration options set, but many of these options are changeable by users wishing to print. A common example of this is duplex printing - where the default is set to print on both side of paper to save paper, but this can be optionally turned off.

Advanced printer options are available on:

  • Devices running the UoL Corporate Desktop.
  • Devices running the UoL Cloud Desktop.
  • Devices running Microsoft Windows 7,8 and 10, with the correct print drivers installed.
  • Devices running Mac OS X 10.5+ ,with the correct print drivers installed.

Advanced printer options are not not available when:

  • Printing via IPP for Linux.
  • Printing via email.

Accessing the printer options is different depending on the software being used to print from, but this is usually via a button labelled Print Options, Printer Properties, Printer Settings or similar. The image below shows the current offering in Word 2013.
