Printing Documents

To print from the iPad, you must have an AirPrint printer available on your network, or have software running on a Mac or other hardware that allows a printer to be seen as an AirPrint device. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the document you want to print in one of the Office for iPad apps.

  2. Tap the File icon; then tap Print (4.20).


    4.20 Begin printing by tapping the File icon in the Ribbon.

    The Printer Options sheet appears (4.21).


    4.21 You need to select your printer from the Printer Options sheet.

  3. Tap Select Printer.

    The Printer sheet appears, showing you the selection of printers on your network (4.22). In my case, I have software running on two devices that allow me different printing and virtual printing options.


    4.22 Choose your printer from the displayed options.

  4. Tap the printer you want to use.

    The Printer Options sheet reappears.

  5. Make changes, if needed, for page range, the number of copies, and any printer options your printer may make available; then tap Print, which is now active.
