    An option to add a print button in Free Text HTML field or Printable Text Widget

    Asked by cheekyface on February 04, 2015 at 09:49 PM

    Hi. 
    I've been able to easily print any page by right clicking on a web page then clicking print which opens a new window with the preview of the page I will print and a print button etc.
    Some websites have had a button that triggers this same action without the need to right-click.
    Is it possible to insert a button in the html text areas of a form so that information can be printed INSTEAD of the print button at the form which prints the whole form?

    I have some information that is optional as people work their way to the end of the form and it occured to me that some people may like to print it and read it later or just keep it for reference.  
    It would be nice to be able to offer a simple button with "print this" just near that information.  If it could be set-up to print ONLY the information (html text field) then that would be ideal.

     

    Cheers,

    Danny.

    Hi Danny,

    We don't have this feature, but I think we can add this as a widget so let me forward this thread to our developers as a feature request. We can't promise any timeframe for this, but if there are updates, you should know it via this thread.

    For now, a workaround would be to create a file, maybe a PDF version of the text and link it in the current Free Text HTML field so user can just click on it and save it to their computers. Or, create a single page in your website and put the text there and still, hyperlink it in the HTML field.

    Thank you!
