Good Morning! I am new at this program and trying to learn my way around in printing the documents/articles from my course? I am registered with two MPTP classes. Is there a way to print them? Please advise. Mahalo!
Hello Emmanuel Rodil - Welcome to the Canvas Community and to using the Canvas learning management system. You should generally find the system to be easy to use as a student. You posted this question to the general, worldwide Canvas Community, so we do not have access to your course site to see how the documents in question were posted by your instructor. By perhaps we can assist a bit. If not, you may want to contact your institution's support.
Indeed, you cannot print a document directly within Canvas. You will have to download/save it to your local computer and then print it from there. You did not indicate where the documents were posted, but I'm assuming your instructor has given you access to the Files menu area (though not all do--they can remove that access!) If the document is in the Files area, this part of the online Student Guide should help: How do I download a single file as a student? I might add--something that guide does not show--that if you click on the file name directly, the document may preview in the box service. (The one that starts with a unicycling panda.) In the preview, you should see a Download button in the upper-right corner of the screen, similar to this:
Not all files can be previewed, however--it depends on the file type.
If, however, you do not have a Files menu item, head to the Page or Assignment where the link is. You should be able to right-click over the link to the document and (depending on your browser) be prompted with a choice to either "Save Link as..." or "Save Target as..." which will allow you to save it to your computer. Once saved to your computer, you can then print it.
I hope this helps a bit.
Hi Emmanuel Rodil...
I wanted to check in with you because there hasn't been any new activity in this particular discussion topic since Ken Black's response on January 20th. Have you had a chance to review his reply? If so, did it help to answer your question? If so, please go ahead and mark his answer as "Correct". However, if you are still looking for assistance with printing, please post an additional reply below so that members of the Community can continue to help you troubleshoot. For now, since there hasn't been any recent activity in this topic, I'm going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered", but that won't prevent you or others from posting additional replies to this topic. I hope that's okay with you, Emmanuel. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
