I have added the Print Button as explained here:
The issue is that the form is being printed out a bit too small!
The actual form size is set to 700 x 900
I figure that if I increase the height / width then the output (printout) will be larger.
Anyone gone through this before?!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think you would have to add a dedicated print-css where you set up all dimensions with em instead of pixel units. This way you can maintain your browser form but also have an optimized printout.
Sadly not. If you're running enterprise edition of Nintex Forms you could just use the pdf print functionality which would be the closest "ahhhh".
If you're running standard edition I'd set up a print css if needed.
as far as I know, we run the Server edition.
Can't recall to have seen the print to pdf function within the workflow area.
ah well, need to look for some sort of print css / script.
Will add to this post if I find a solution
The print to pdf function won't be shown in the workflow area but directly above the shown form:
If you don't see it there you'll probably run the standard edition.
Non-Enterprise Users read this!
After attacking this multiple times, here is a WORKABLE rationale and free workaround.
Nintex forms are usually opened by clicking a List Item, which causes the form to open in a pop-up (dialog) over the top of the List.
It is the pop-up that places the viewing and printing constraints on the form. Any attempt to Print to Printer, Print to PDF, or Save as PDF will output with constraints levied by the pop-up.
To get around this, a user Right-Clicks on the List Item, and selects "Open in new tab" or "Open in new window". This causes the Form to take the full page, which makes the Printing and Saving to PDF work as you would expect in your browser, using the full width of the page.
Next step: If anyone figures out how to force the page to open in a new window/tab automatically, I would appreciate being notified!
Nintex Team, it would be nice if you made an option in the Form Settings to force the form to open in a new tab if checked.
Additional tip I learned... if you copy the path next to a "+ New Item" in SharePoint, and paste it as a link in a Text or Context Box link, it will always open up in a full window, which also prints correctly.
