CHeck the manual for your printer. It sounds like the watermark is set to CONFIDENTIAL.

I’ve gotten reports of the exact opposite from other gmail users.

I can email the document to someone near the printer and they can print the document.

How do you get by ISP size limitations? Some ISPs reject emails as small as 8 MB. There are services such as Gigasize, YouSendIt and Dropbox, and VPNs, but for many people Cloud Print would be simpler.

I can’t explain that unless they just don’t like my hobbies (guns, etc. LOL).

That could be it. Don’t-be-evil Gargoyle might refuse to do business with evil gun companies. That wouldn’t stop them from selling your info to gun confiscators though...

“google? Wanna bet they keep a copy of everything you print, search every word, scan every image and sell the information to advertisers and any other munchkin who wants it?”

But they are chicken feed compared to the NSA

From the print dialog box that opens after you click ‘print’, click on properties and locate the option for ‘watermark’ - turn it off. It is a watermark, some drivers or machines enable it by default (my win 7 machine on my desk printing to an HP at my office did so when I installed it).


The printer, an Samsung laser, prints just fine from the computer directly.

Samsung printers don’t work with Google cloud. You need a supported printer.

This is referring to Cloud Print Ready Printers. They don’t require a computer to be able to Cloud Print.

The Samsung is hooked up as a Classic Printer, which means any printer the computer can print to, you can Cloud Print to.

I haven’t trusted anything Google from its inception in 1998. It was too government-friendly, even back then!

Apparently not since your Samsung doesn’t fully support interpreting the Google cloud print commands correctly.

You have to share your printer in Google Cloud and enter the email address of the people you want using it.

There are no “Cloud Print Commands”. Cloud Print prints through your computer just like you were sharing the printer with another computer on a network. It’s just a much broader network.

And the Samsung prints just fine from another computer networked to it.

Exactly.

That’s why I said that I had already set up Cloud Print on two other systems with no problems.
