Some custom tools include special forms that are set up mainly for printing purposes. These forms might have a layout designed specifically for a print layout, and include or exclude fields as needed.

To print using a selected form:

  2. Go to the Backstage view, click Print, and then click the Printer icon.

  3. Click Print selected item through form, select the form to use for printing from the drop-down list, and click OK.

    Note:  If you do not see this option in the Print dialog box, the custom tool you are using does not support this feature.
