CKEditor allows you to print the document along with all its formatting and contents. The printed material will not contain the editor window or its toolbars.

Printing a Document

To print the document, press the Print button on the toolbar. The standard printing pop-up window of your operating system will appear and you will be able to choose the printer as well as all relevant options.

Print window in Windows operating system

Depending on the type and version of the operating system in use (Windows, Linux, Mac) you should be able to at least choose a number of copies and a page range (varying from a selection of the text to a list of pages).

Page Breaks

Note that the text entered in a browser-based text editor such as CKEditor differs from a paged medium such as print in that it is not divided into physical pages. If, however, you need to have control over the paging of the printed version, use the Insert Page Break for Printing button from the toolbar.

Page break example in CKEditor

Once inserted, the page break will be visible in CKEditor editing area as two dotted lines with a page break symbol. When you use the Print function, the document will be printed on two separate pages.
