Simple way to print files (pdf) from preview?

We have files (especially PDF) attached to pages and in the preview we can only:

  • download the file
  • upload a new version
  • make comments
  • etc.

Is there a simple way to print files from the preview?

Patrick, I regret to report that there isn't a way to print attachments from the preview. We have a request open to add the functionality: Print function on the attachment preview screen. Please vote on it and comment to emphasize your use case to the dev team.

Hi Ann. Any update on this feature? One year later and still no Print option from what I can see. 

Could you link up the request again, @Ann Worley? I could not find this and would like to vote for this. Printing is still quite an important thing in some teams here and this currently means numerous duplicates on local or network drives just for printing files currently.

unfortunately I can't find the request and the link is pointing to this topic again.

We would be interested in this topic too.


Best regards.
