Printing from the Freewrite
To provide writers with a consistent and pain-free experience, your Freewrite device does not provide a native method to send a draft directly to a printer. There are simply too many variables and inconsistencies involved in linking a device directly to the variety of printers out in the wild.
With that said, there are multiple quick and easy ways you can get your document to a printer without the hassle of connecting a new device. We provide a dedicated [send] key on the keyboard for precisely this reason.
Use the [send] key to get a pdf of a draft into your email inbox. Then, use a computer or mobile device to open the attachment and print via the printers already connected to the computer or mobile device via the cloud.
If your drafts are synced to Postbox, you can also select and download files directly from Postbox and print from there.
Alternatively, if you are using your device offline, simply export files to your computer manually by plugging in your device using the cable we provide, and print the exported documents directly from your computer. See more on exporting documents offline here:
In the future, we will be giving the 'send' action more flexibility. For example, you could change the email address connected to the[send] key to a printer-specific email address. Some printers are able to be configured with an email address such that anything sent to that email address is automatically printed.
