You can optimize a page for printing by creating a specific Printer Friendly template and selecting that template on the Create/Edit Theme page. See "Changing the Default Templates in a Theme".
Generally, a Printer Friendly template optimizes a page for printing. For example, a Printer Friendly template might:
Not display tabs or navigation bars
Display items as text instead of as form elements
If the theme you select does not include a printer friendly template, you can create a Printer Friendly template by creating a new page template.

To select a Printer Friendly template:
Navigate to the Themes page:
On the Workspace home page, click Application Builder.
Select an application.
Click Shared Components.
Under User Interface, select Themes.
In the Themes list, click the theme name.
The Create/Edit Theme page appears.
Scroll down to Component Defaults and locate the Printer Friendly Page list.
Make a selection from the Printer Friendly Page list.
Click Apply Changes.
Once you create a Printer Friendly template and select it, you can use
f?p syntax to toggle to Printer Friendly mode. Including the ninth
f?p syntax argument (
PrinterFriendly) renders the page in printer friendly mode (optimizing printed output). For example, you could include this argument when coding a link or creating a navigation bar icon.
