JIRA printable view: User stories w/ Sub-Tasks

Trying to figure out how to obtain a printable view of a user story that includes sub-task descriptions. For example, right now when I print a story it shows the underlying sub-tasks but not their description. Is there anyway to be able to achieve a more detailed printable view?

You might want to play around with the templates.

<single-issue-view key="issue-html" i18n-name-key="admin.issue.views.issue.plugin.html" name="Printable" class="com.atlassian.jira.issue.views.IssueHtmlView" state='enabled' fileExtension="html" contentType="text/html">
        <resource type="velocity" name="view" location="templates/plugins/issueviews/single-word.vm" />
        <resource type="velocity" name="style" location="templates/plugins/issueviews/single-word-css.vm" />
        <resource type="velocity" name="header" location="templates/plugins/issueviews/single-word-header.vm" />
        <resource type="velocity" name="footer" location="templates/plugins/issueviews/single-word-footer.vm" />
        <resource type="velocity" name="previous" location="templates/plugins/searchrequestviews/searchrequest-link-previous.vm" />
        <order>30</order>
    </single-issue-view>

Hi Becky,

You can easily do this with our Intelligent Reports plugin. Design and format your template in Word and then use point and click rules to insert the subtasks and descriptions into the appropriate places in your template, including any other fields of the subtasks you want. No need to work with velocity templates or code.
