More than once, I've used that to test out a form... and inadvertently closed it, losing the site entirely.
How can I make the print form open in another window?

You can setup your Thank you page to another page (could be your form's URL or another page of your website)
For more details, here I leave you a guide explaining it.

I’m talking about the print form button that you can optionally include next to the submit button.
It’s great, but doesn’t open in a separate window. So, when you close it, you lose the page you are on.
My question is whether there was a way to assign a “target=_blank” to that button.

The print button doesn't do what you describe, it only will print the filled data either to a printer or to a file.
But if you don't want to loose the current page where the form is embedded, you can redirect the user once she presses the submitt button to the same page, using the Thank URL feature. Just paste the URL of the current page on that field (see the guide)
And regarding to whether there is a way to assign a target=blank to the print button, I think a workaround would be downloading the source code and customize it in that way.
I hope this helps you
Feel free to come back for more questions

I’ve looked at downloading the source code in the past, but it doesn’t look like it is in html… only “script”…
Am I looking in the wrong place?

Ok, my fault, you cannot use the Target tag , you would need to include within the class Form-Submit-button an action to redirect to the same page
<button id="input_66" type="submit" class="form-submit-button" Method="post" action="http://www.yourdomain.com/yourpage.html">
However, this is most likely what the Thank You wizar would accomplish if you set the Thank You page to a custom URL (which would be the SAME URL where the form is already embedded) and it would cause the desired effect on the user , remaining on the same page.
- CyclogirlAnswered on May 31, 2012 at 05:10 PMI need an option to fill out and print the form, without submitting… for those who are leary of filling out online forms…
But, for those that just need to print out the form to mail in with their check… or they want to save what they filled out…
… how would I include that in the welcome/thank you email? I think I missed that info or deleted it.

Hello again Christine
It seems you won't neeed the submit button at all, am I correct?
If that is the case, you might want to hide the submit button like on this clone I have made of yours
I just injected this CSS code to it :
display : none;
Then, in order to save the form and continue later , you might want to create an autoresponder and include an edit link
Or , if the page seems to be too long for users, you could include a save and continue later button
Hope this helps better
- CyclogirlAnswered on May 31, 2012 at 07:48 PMSorry for confusion… no, I need both options.

I understand, to my knowledge , what you want to do is not possible in one single form
You would have to create 2 forms and a sort of conditional logics to redirect one form to the other one that would not have the submit button, based on a choice (ex: "do you want to print the form and email it to us with check?" ) or embed the 2 forms separately inidicating which one is to print and which one is to be sent online
But probably I might be wrong and some of my colleagues my come with a better idea than mine
