Print a form template

Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form templates are designed to be viewed and completed on a computer. However, your users may opt to print a copy of a completed form for their personal records or for other reasons, so you should verify that the form looks acceptable when it is printed. For example, you will want to make sure that controls fit within the margins of the printed page and that text on the form template is readable when printed.

Print the form as the user would see it

When users print a form, InfoPath makes adjustments to the form or removes certain items that don't make sense in a printed context. For example, the Insert Item instructional text that appears by default under repeating tables won't appear in the printed form. Neither will button controls, list box entries, or scroll arrows, as these items lose their meaning on the printed page.

  1. On the Standard toolbar, click Preview.

  2. In the Preview window, on the Standard toolbar, click Print Button image .

  3. To adjust the print settings, close the Preview window. On the File menu, click Page Setup, and then select the options that you want on the Page Setup and Print Settings tabs.
