However, only PDF files are (currently) supported.

There are 2 ways of printing PDF files from EPFL Campus:

  • Moodle documents from the Moodle feature in the app
  • From any app that displays PDFs and supports sharing (Safari, Adobe Reader, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.)

If the printer icon is disabled, it means that the document file format is not supported (only PDF files are currently supported).
