In the interests of moving towards a paperless practice, the ability to print to PDF is an incredibly handy feature. How you print to PDF depends on your operating system (whether you use a Windows or a Mac machine).
Before you begin
For Windows machines it may be necessary for you to install a new PDF printer program if this does not already exist on your computer. Genie Support is not able to install this for you, however if you are unsure of how to proceed, your IT provider should be able to help.
On Mac machines, this feature is built into the interface window. This will appear when you click on the Print button in Genie if you have ‘Ask for Print Settings’ ticked in Printing Preferences against the specific print job you are trying to print. Simply click on the PDF drop-down as below and select Save as PDF.
For PDF printing on Windows machines, you will firstly need to have a PDF printer installed, such as a third-party program like CutePDF or Foxit PDF. However, if you are using a Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft Print to PDF comes as standard and does not need to be installed. You simply need to choose this PDF printer option from the list of printers. In fact, some Genie users on Windows machines set their PDF printer as the default printer for particular jobs in their File > Printing Preferences window.
If you are not wanting to print to PDF for every print job, ensure you have the ‘Ask for Print Settings’ ticked in Printing Preferences against the specific print job you are trying to print.
