​Known​ Printing Issues

PDF Printing Problems - m​acOS
We have had several reports from mostly Mac users trying to print PDFs and getting error messages print out instead. The error usually means there is some text formatting problem with the original file that the printer cannot process.  View Example

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.  View Example.
If you continue to have problems printing, please contact us.

Available Printers

Law students can download a printer installation program that will install the Law School network printers and configure them to print double-sided. The program will remove any previously installed Law School printers, and will install the printers below.

* 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

If you do not wish to use your MCard, you may login to the printers with your uniqname and a printing number (PIN) 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-print.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, see these guides to become familiar with the process of swiping your MCard.
