Printing Status and Issues


* new PDF Printing Problems - MacOS - Oct 17, 2019
We have had several reports from mostly Mac users trying to print PDFs and getting error messages print out instead such as this. The error usually means there is some text formatting problem with the original file that the printer cannot process.

To get around this, we recommend using Acrobat Reader and printing the document as an image. To do that, in the print window, click the Advanced button, then check "Print As Image" first before printing. See this screenshot for an example. If you continue to have problems printing, please let us know.

* When printing to the Law-Student-XeroxPrinters "Follow-You" printer, nothing will immediately print. Instead, your job(s) will be held on the print server. You will not be charged until you release them from the queue. You can visit any of the five student black & white Xerox printers to release and print your job(s) by entering your printing PIN or swiping your MCard. This method of printing is more secure since there is less chance of your document(s) being taken by someone else, which is especially important when printing anything sensitive. You will also be able to visit any of the five student black & white Xerox printers to release your job(s) instead of reprinting when a printer goes offline, and spend less time standing in line during peak traffic.
Note- jobs that are held in the queue, but not released are automatically deleted after two hours.

Printing PIN

Logging in to the printers with your uniqname and a printing number (PIN) is the most reliable way to release your print job(s).  You can set up your own PIN by logging in to the Law School's print quota webpage https://law-prtsvr.law.umich.edu:9192 and clicking Change Details.
Note: PIN numbers must be at least 4 characters.

How to Use Card Readers

If you prefer to login with your MCard to release print jobs, follow this guide to become familiar with the process of swiping your MCard or entering a PIN to release your print jobs on the student Xerox printers.
