Hi there,

 

 

I have a PDF file, I need to print it with size of A0, can you please assist me on that?

 Hi @Osama

 

The standard Ricoh printers that the RMIT-Global queue connects to will only offer the option of printing in A4 and A3.
If you require other sizes, you can investigate using one of the specialist printers in Building 8, Levels 7 and 11 and Building 9, Level 3. More information can be found below:

Hi there, the printer is not showing when using myDesktop. How can I add the printer? Thanks, Alison

Hi @Alison

 

I've just logged in and found the same thing. You shouldn't have to add anything...the printer should map autoatically when you log into the environment.

I've created an ticket and forwarded to the MyDesktop support team to look into. I've sent you a private message with the details.

 

Regards,

Adam

Hi @Nurul and @Eivind

 

By signing out of the session (Start button in the desktop > Click your name > Sign Out) and signing back in, this should re-map the RMIT-Global printing queue to the MyDesktop environment.

There's been a problem ticket raised for this and I've just attached your issues to it.
Once rectified, you should each receive contact to your respective student emails.

 

Kind regards,
