The Web Print service (the ability to upload documents and collect at a later time) is currently unable to print PDF formatted documents. Other types of documents are printing without issue.
Engineers are working to resolve the incident, and in the interim the following workarounds are suggested:
(1) RECOMMENDED - print the document directly to the printer from an Open Access computer in a library or the Julian Hodge study Centre (you may need to email the document to yourself to be able to access it from the open access computer).
(2) Consider changing the format of the document - e.g. Open the PDF document in MS Word, saving and printing the document as a Word document - Please Note: this may impact the formatting of the document, meaning option (1) may be preferred.
