Print using MyPrintCenter on MAC computers

 

Printing from a Mac and Apple based programs (such as Pages, Numbers, QuickBooks, etc.) has a few more steps when printing using the MyPrintCenter web interface.  These steps can be applied when printing html based pages also.

From the webpage or program page select File, Print…..

 

    Select file, print

 

From the Print Dialog Box, click on the “PDF” drop down menu in the lower left corner, select the “open PDF in Preview” option

 

    Open PDF in preview

 

And then save the document.

 

    Save the document

Remember that depending on the webpage design and coding, the PDF version may not appear exactly like the webpage.  You may edit and save your document before printing your desired information.

Once your document is saved in the form you wish, go to https://pharos.lib.vt.edu/myprintcenter to upload your documents.

Remember if you are a first time user of the print system, you will need to swipe your card at any of the copiers.  Logging in and logging out will enter your account into the system.
