Printing from a university computer or the WVD

If you are using a university computer which is is connected to the wired campus network, or you are using either the General or Academic Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) you can print to MyPrint using one of the LeedsPrint queues.

Open the document you want to print, and use the Print option, then select the print queue as per the table below:

On a :Choose :
A Library / Cluster computer, or the WVD*MyPrint on LeedsPrint
A staff computer (on the wired network)Staff on LeedsPrint

MyPrint defaults to Grayscale, 2-sided and A4.

To select other options go to Properties (it may be Options or Preferences depending on the application).

If you're printing a PDF document please also review the Printing PDF documents section.

Select the MyPrint queue, go to properties to set your printing options, and press print

You can change Paper Size, Print Type and Select Colour


Printing PDF documents

If you're printing a PDF document, you will notice when you press the Print button that the options are presented differently.

We recommend using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+P instead of pressing the Print button as this will display the more familiar printing interface.

After pressing CTRL+P select the "MyPrint on leedsprint" queue.

If you want to print in colour, 1-sided or on A3 click the Preferences button to access these options.
