    I have an iPad with latest update and can print anything to my Canon air printer with the exceptions of gmails. When I try to do so, I get a message to register my printer i
    In the cloud by "follow these instructions" which takes me to a Canon page trying to sell me an air printer. Help please.

    There shouldn't be a problem when you use the built in Mail app. I guess you're trying to print from the Gmail app?

    Assuming we are talking about the Gmail app;

    It looks like the Gmail app only offers the Google Cloud Print option. I can't help with this, since I've never used the service and have only a vague idea of how to set it up.

    However, I noticed that Gmail offeres the option of printing the email to Google Drive as a PDF. If you do this, then go to the Google Drive app to print, you will be offered the choice of printing via AirPrint or Google Cloud Print. It's a two step operation, and I didn't much like the formating when I tried it, but it did work.

    Thank you . I am new to this forum and not too certain whether you got my first "thanks". If not, what I said was that printing from the Mail app works wonderfully and that I had been trying to find out how to do this for over 6 months, so my thanks are pretty limitless. Thank you again.....and again!
