Printing of document from preview cuts off part of the document

Printing a pdf document from the document preview will cut off the right margin of the document.

Previewing the pdf document does show the complete document but when printing, the right margin is cut off, you can already see this in the print preview.

Same behaviour with various browsers (Firefox, Brave, Safari, Chrome), with the Docs integration from Connections MT and on premises

    @ Rene Schimmer yes printing the rendered PDF and not the web page would be the best and correct solution. Beside cutting off the page printing footer and header could also cause some more trouble for the print result especially if the document is bigger than just one page.

    Assuming this is in the document viewer, a simple way to avoid this is to minimize the right column as this is what takes up the additional spae on the right.
    Once done you can print the browser page without it being cut off on the right.

    But this is not printing the actual PDF but the web page rendition from the browser print dialog including the Connections Viewer header and footer plus the main content coming from the PDF.


    So the better way here would be to introduce a "Print" button that only renders the PDF in the print dialog, correct?

    Of course we also need this!

    Seems more like a bugfix than a feature request...
