when we try to print on the chrome book it only goes to a cloud printer. no option to printer to a standard printer. instead it ask to sign into a google account to do cloud printing. however, when i do the same procedure on my android phone i see all the printers when i am connected to the WiFi that the printers are on the same network,

how do i get the same when printing from the chrome book

Hi Booby,

I assume your printer it's connected to the internet if you want to try on your chromebook to go in the address bar, type chrome://devices, and then press Enter.

You should be on the Google Cloud Print service which will detects any printers on the network.

  • If your printer is listed under New devices, click Register, and then click Register again to confirm and print a confirmation page.
  • If your printer is listed under My devices, your printer is already registered with Google Cloud Print. Click Manage to view your registered Google Cloud Print printers.
  • If your printer is not listed, make sure your printer is connected to the network.

Let me know if this works

I see nothing listed under devices.  The printer is connected to the network.  I can print other docs, just not PDFs. They are forced to google cloud print.

The only way I found I could print in adobe PDF on my Chromebook is to share the document to the printer app for my printer. [open document]>share>share copy>[choose the printing app or plugin for your printer]>choose printer>[format the print job. i.e. number of copies/pages/etc.]>print. Kinda tedious but it works.

Same issue here. When trying to print from Reader it automatically forces me to the Google Cloud Print page, with no other options available (see attached screenshot). Apparently Adobe didn't get the memo about Google disabling Cloud Print. When printing elsewhere, Chrome and all other apps bring up my local wifi printer I set up in Chrome settings, no problem. Only having this problem with Adobe Acrobat.

Are you using the Acrobat Reader Android app? Or the built-in Chromebook PDF viewer?

I have the same issue. and Now that Google cloud print is gone, it is impossible to print any PDF file that is stored on my Chromebook device. I can print anything with my Chromebook through a USB connected printer, it is obviously  Adobe problem that they are not willing to resolve.
