Printing pages from lists/new master page

  Asked By: Maryann    Date: Oct 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1508

I've been able to print pages using the default master with no
problem...you know, if I had an item on a list open to edit or view, I
could just select File/Print and it would print nicely. Now that I've
changed the default master for the site (to Horizon blue from the
samples) that no longer works. Where do I begin troubleshooting this?
Anyone else ever see this?

A lot of people don't realize that you can customize CSS on a master  Page
specifically for a print  view. The default  master uses a CSS that hides several
elements on the page  when you are printing. I'm pretty sure the Horizon blue
master overrides this CSS file. The default master also uses html tables, rows
and cells for laying out elements on the page while the Horizon blue master uses
<DIV> and <SPAN> tags. The HTML tables translate to the printed page better. I
suspect you'll need to develop a full CSS file just for Print media for use with
the Horizon Blue master.
