Hi, does anyone have a clue on how to print modern SharePoint pages?
I've tried IE and Chrome, and both just want to print a page clip of the current view.
Am I missing something, is this currently just not possible? Could someone from Microsoft possibly pitch in, and tell us if there is a print friendly view available or in the works?

Hi @Ivan Unger,
When you print a page with Shrink to fit (sounds like responsive printing) enabled the page looks indeed very poor. When you set the page to 50% then all suddenly looks a lot better. Maybe not a great solution, but at least better than nothing.

Hi @Mark Kashman, sorry to mention you twice here, but my first try didn't receive any response and there weren't any news at ignite about this either.
Is there any kind of progress to expected for printing modern pages. I'd basically be happy if the printing layout would borrow the one from the mobile apps, and reformat everything into one column. I guess this wouldn't be so hard.

There is still a uservoice open for this:
It's only got 1 vote though.

thank you @Ivan Unger for trying to get a resolution.
It is unfortunate that this post did not get any response from MS despite you have been asking two times.
We have discovered the issue while been in a middle of an implementation. it is very hard when a basic functionality ( like printing a page) that is taken for granted is missing.
In disbelieve , I've spent hours trying different approaches ( different browsers; saving as PDF, exporting to Office documents, screen capture, etc.) . You post at least confirmed that this is systemic issues. I've posted vote on https://sharepoint.uservoice.com/forums/329214-sites-and-collaboration/suggestions/32229454-printing... . But it has only 20 votes.
MS is not eating own dog food as , for example, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/surface-laptop/p/90fc23dv6snz?activetab=pivot:overviewtab prints just fine.

Edge print out: Edge
Chrome print out: Chrome
As you can see, the Edge printout is more legible but the Chrome print out has all the graphics.
So Microsoft has acknowledged that this is a bug and is trying to fix it. I try to like Microsoft stuff but recently they have been testing my patience with Edge:
Anyway I digress. Microsoft can pat themselves on the back here for giving my clients another solid reason why they use Chrome... :(
