Print Button options in Word

Copper Contributor

New to this community and a newbie question.

Is it possible to add a print button to a word document that opens the print document dialog box?

I have figured out how to add an ActiveX Command button with [ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage]. Unfortunately that prints directly to the default printer. I can see this causing some issues in a n office with multiple printers..


Additional context: I am working with a French and English document (more of a form). At some point I would like to have two print buttons, one for the french pages and the other for the english pages. 

Maybe there is a better way than a print button? Maybe there is a way to click a button and have an alternate language come up or groups of fields turn on/off.
