Printing in Dropbox using Safari

Printing in Dropbox using Safari

New member | Level 2

Bow do I print documents from my Dropbox account with Safari? I can do it using Chrome, but I am unable to find the "Print" option using the Safari web browser. Has anyone successfully been able to print from the Dropbox site using Safari?

Hello @Danielle_Mason, I hope you're having a good day so far!

 

Could you just clarify for me, are you viewing the files on the website from a computer or a mobile device?

 

Also, does using a private window in Safari make any difference?

 

Finally, are you using the printing option from the black menu bar along the bottom of the file preview in Chrome? Do you see the same black bar in Safari, just without the printing icon?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!

Hi @daphne , Thank you for your response! To answer your questions:

 

1) Using Safari from a computer, not phone

 

2) I haven't tried a private window yet, but I can 

 

3) In Chrome I have been usng the printer icon on the black bar with each success. There is a black bar in Safari, but it does not have a print option.

 

Thank you again for your help!

Thanks for clarifying that info for me @Danielle_Mason!

 

If you have the same issue even with the private Safari window, please also try clearing the browser cache and trying once more.

 

Keep me posted!

That’s one option, but it requires a Mac to be running when you want to print. It’s probably better if your printer is not networked.

I have check a gcc desktop vinyl cutter and printer at this site with network capability, and I’m using Readdle’s Printer Pro on my iPhone. Works like a charm and I don’t need to remember to turn my computer on.

That is one choice, however, it requires a Mac to be running when you need to print. It's most likely better if your printer isn't organized.

I have to check a gcc work area vinyl shaper and printer at this site with network capacity, and I'm utilizing Readdle's Printer Pro on my iPhone. Has exactly the intended effect and I don't have to make sure to turn my PC on.
