Anyone else having trouble PRINTING through apps on LSAC?

Postby lsatextreme » Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:50 pm

so after you click on the print link on the top left corner after you load an application or something, it'll try to load into print mode or something, but nothing shows up on my screen. It's happening on my macbook as well as my work PC. Is anyone else having this issue?

please someone help, i can't find anything about this on google or on TLS, but it's been happening on my windows PC as well as my macbook, and I've tried both chrome and safari, and it's happening every single time, I go to press print, and it's a gray blank page instead of trying to print.

I'm like going crazy or something, does no one else see this?

but it's a pdf that's like...embedded into the lsac site. The print button is the site button too. I can't just right click it and do "save as" or anything like that.

I've had this problem before, though not with the LSAC system. I think the solution was to wait a day and try again later. (Sorry, not much help!)

I was having the same problem today. I emailed LSAC about it.

make sure it didnt automatically download it as a pdf
if you use chrome, see if you can control-click and save as a pdf
last option is to use the preview button before you put the application in your shopping cart to produce a pdf.

LSAC emailed me back and were able to send the document as a pdf so try that.

I had this problem with the form for letters of rec on a Mac, nothing would print.

I had to install firefox and go to LSAC via firefox and everything worked fine.

When I first was doing apps on my Mac back in early November, it would open Adobe. No problems. By early December it opened imbedded into the LSAC website like you described. Much worse and no clue why.

I know that doesn't help, but misery loves company? Good luck.

I ran into this problem running Google Chrome, but was able to print just fine when I opened everything with Internet Explorer. I hate using IE, but always keep it installed for situations like this.
