AirPrint issues? (and workaround solution)
I recently purchased a brand new HP AirPrint compatible printer. I can now print documents straight from my iPad to my printer. Nice.
There seems to be limitations in my printing, in whatever app I use as well. As in the iPad/printer has difficulties in printing more than a single page at once.
I'm specifically talking email for instance. If I get a long scrolling email and AirPrint it, only one page of paper prints out. Most frustrating.
Same goes for my letters and documents; try to print out a document with more than a single page then it falls over.
Same with trying to print web pages - the printer struggles where the web page is large or in multiple pages.
Ive done a fair bit of testing and it looks like this is more a general iPad AirPrint limitation rather than a printer issue. More like an iOS limitation.
Has anyone else noticed this?
I have found a decent solution though - turn whatever I want to print into a PDF first. Be it a letter, web page, picture, email etc etc. Air print seams to perfectly print individual A4 page PDF files. This is pain in the ass as i'd like to print directly from the app I'm in, but all is not plain sailing.
am I missing a trick here? Is this a common problem already noted? Is there a universal printing app that'll help solve these issues, as the general AirPrint facility doesn't have printer/iPad set-ups or configurations. It just prints.
Thanks guys, any advice or insight would be useful.
