How do I print from D2L?

For files inside D2L, we recommend saving the file to the desktop or a thumb drive before printing. Printing directly from D2L can create problems. The steps are:

  • Download file from D2L
  • Right click on file and select convert to PDF ( adobe)
  • Once converted, either send to device through correct print driver or save to usb( preferred)
  • Print file or insert USB

Why is it taking so long to print?

  • It may print slowly if there are lots of images in your document. Images take longer than simple text to print.
  • Sometimes the printer can't find the "end" of the document. This error rarely happens, and it only occurs when the file is being downloaded from the web.
