Printing Modern pages
Need a way to print modern pages, without the navigation pane etc.
We’ve already made some improvements to how modern pages layout for print in chrome. We’re also looking at additional improvements as well.

I have had some success with this method for SharePoint News:
On the news article press Ctrl-P to Print.
Optionally choose to Save as PDF.
Choose Portrait orientation.
Click on "More settings".
Set the Scale to 50%.
Enable Background graphics to get the header banner.
Click Save or Print depending on if you are saving as PDF or printing directly.
The print format is reasonable.
Chrome page photo helps to produce a screen shot/pdf
Being able to export a SharePoint page is critical for audit & compliance purposes in our industry.
After reading through this thread it doesn't seem printing from SharePoint to PDF is an option yet. I must be able to print a News Post to PDF for compliance purposes. I guess I will just keep my fingers crossed that this becomes an option in the very near future.
We have been using Sharepoint as a policy repository for some time but because of this issue are still posting the actual policies as PDFs rather than as modern pages (which we would prefer!) because there is no way to produce an aggregated compendium of policies to attach to contracts or deliver in alternate ways when needed. This remains a surprisingly huge gap in the SharePoint universe.
I genuinely don't believe there isn't the facility to properly print list items or at least save them as PDF out of the box
Also to note is if you have a dark theme for your SharePoint site (dark background white text) and print a page using the browser's print function (which ends up with awful formatting that we'll ignore for now), it will by default blank the background - which is what we want. But the browser print function isn't smart enough to change the white text to black. So you end up with an article composed of only images and no text.
We definitely need a native SharePoint print button that takes things like this and the page layout into consideration.
the print function in sharepoint is not there anymore, were there for 2 month ago but now its gone hmm anyone with same issue
MS needs to make this a priority. It's print people. Not asking to put a car in space. Oh wait, they did that already. See how easy that was?
Hello. Our more than 3,300 associates would LOVE to see a print-friendly option for pages. Thank you for your consideration.

This is shameful... :(
Any movement on this?
This is ridiculous. How am I supposed to encourage people to use a system when they can't even do something simple like print a page? What makes it even more ridiculous is that you can apparently print from Chrome, not from Edge. You'd think that MSs own browser would be the capable.

As a SharePoint Modern Pages user, I want to select several site pages and export them into 1 PDF document.
A viable intranet with policy and SOP pages absolutely requires a print or PDF / word doc generation function. This is not just a casually needed thing ... this is required for many compliance activities. We still post our policies as PDF docs solely because of this functional gap. A clear road map towards this function is needed. (Related to this would also be the ability to generate a PDF-able content map of a site).

This a common problem with most of the printers, even I have faced the same on my epson printer and similar issues associated with it, however, I have had help from https://epsonsupport247.com/epson-error-code-0x97/ for fixing major issues.
And please add a Print function to top library tool bar in order to print several items/pages at a time - thanks!
The progress made is good - but make them printable in Firefox as well please!

At this moment in time many Modern View pages return an empty page when printed via various web browsers.
We get this request several times a week (we make the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online / Flow). People don't just want to print SP Online pages, they also want to export and archive SharePoint Online pages in PDF format. No printing means no PDF either.
Annoyingly it worked in the Modern View some time ago, but the Modern View implementation is updated so often, it is next to impossible to provide customers with a solution that works reliably.
Really looking forward to making it possible to send a modern view page to a printer, and for this functionality to be included in formal regression tests going forward. We can't have something that works one day, and fails the next.
