Support » Plugin: Google Drive Embedder » Trying to give users access to print or download doc

  • Resolved Cdn-Jaydub


    I’m using the Google Drive Embedder to preview our documents within our site, but I want to give people access to print them, if they would like without have to create an entire other document for them to access. What is the easiest way to use your plugin to allow print access to the document?

    Thank you for getting in touch.

    This may depend on the way the document is created, and your sharing settings. We are ultimately restricted to the way Google has chosen to render the embedded files.

    For non-native files (i.e. PDF, doc files – not Google Doc/Sheet) there will normally be a pop-out button within the viewer so you can at least open in a new tab and print from there.

    For all file types, you can always embed the same file twice – once as an ‘Embed document’ preview, and again as a ‘Viewer file link’. I think this is what you’ve tried to do, but you don’t actually need two different files to be available.

    I hope this at least confirms the options, but if you have any other questions please do get in touch by email: (I will probably not pick up any replies on the forum here.)
