Documents not printing?

There are many reasons why a document may fail to print, but the most common reasons are:

  • Length of the file name: Try to keep your file name under 50-characters when saving.
  • Type of document: Although every attempt has been made to support most popular file formats (e.g. email messages, word, excel, PowerPoint, pdf and image files (jpeg and tiff), we cannot guarantee all document types will be supported.
