Allow printing of PDF papers within Mendeley Desktop
A simple "Print" menu under File would be good. Control-P doesn't even work now though.
to enable the built-in PDF reader to print the document using the standard print dialog
PLEASE ADD A PRINT OPTION !!!! PLEASEEEEEE
Maybe I'm just missing something but I would have expected to have the ability to directly print the pdf file from the desktop
Print document possibility from inside mendeley instead of opening the file externally each time we want to print a paper
Please add a "print" function in the toolbar. Thanks.
Have a print button in the File menu when you have a PDF open. Please.
Adding PDF print capability would be nice. Either under
the File menu or in the PDF toolbar.
Our second-highest voted feature request is now complete :) Print is now available in Mendeley Desktop 1.12. Use File > Print, or CTRL+P (CMD+P on MacOS) to print from the built-in PDF reader.

On linux, there doesn't seem to be a way to select paper sizes. Mine keeps wanting to print in A4 size paper, but I want to print letter size. Suggestions?
Mihai Paraschiv commented
It should work as long as you print the entire document. Before, it might be a good idea to go to Tools->Options->Connection and check the "Use system connection settings" box. These did the trick for me. Also, Mendeley should stick to the printer defaults in this case. So, if your printer is by default set to print on both sides you should get a double sided print straight out of Mendeley.

This doesn't work for me at all. There is a File > Print but nothing happens. I can print from all my other apps. Also, the email function does not work. Again, I can use it, but it doesnt' actually send an email from the application. I am on a PC using Windows.

doesn't work on linux platform
John-Smith Wang commented
-.- seriously guys, there isn't even an option to access the printer settings to print double sided. For me it raises a question: Have the devs at mendeley ever tried to print a publication in their whole life? ...
Roberto Mosca commented
Is this a joke?? In the Mac version you can't even select "Double-side" from the printing dialog box!! PRINTING IS ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL, EASIEST THINGS TO IMPLEMENT IN ALMOST ALL THE PROGRAMS, how can it be that after 5 years that we ask for a printing feature it is SO BADLY implemented?!
Jena Cleveland commented
I love you for this! Thanks! Works Great! You need to be in a paper to see command in the File menu
Also - to you haters--- THIS IS A FREE PROGRAM! I appreciate you Mendeley. Thanks for your work

I have upgraded to the dev channel but I cannot find any sort of option to actually print the PDF. Where is this functionality located?
Marie-Jean Thoraval commented
Warwick Adams commented
Yes please. At present you have to go back to the source PDF and print from there. Annoying.
Jan Sunde commented
Pretty basic functionality in its current form, but hurrah!!

Mendeley Desktop 1.12-dev1 has been released. This is the first version to include printing support for all platforms. You can get it from MD 1.11 by going to 'Help -> Check for Updates -> Opt in To Experimental Releases'.
We're aware of a couple of known issues:
1) Annotations can get clipped in the margins of printed pages
2) If you opt to print only a subset of pages, the annotations sheet is not printed.
In related news, we're also working on some great updates to the Mendeley iOS app for tablet-based reading. Since someone is bound to ask about Android updates, please check the Android thread on this forum for updates on that.
João Mourinho commented
Great new! :) I'm looking forward to it!

I have problems with version 1.10
Can we have more than one esion in Mendeley desktop in the same computer?
How can I do this?
Eric Huerta commented
It is great you are already considering to add this feature. As others have said, it would be very important to have the option to print with, or without, annotations.
Zareen Bharucha commented
Please make sure that the version that's coming will allow printing of highlights, annotations and notes :) Otherwise no point!
David Martí Pete commented
I find this a very important missing feature! Also I would like to have the option to open the folder where the PDF is stored, so that I could print it from there opening it with another software. Right now I have to export it and then print that one.
Christine Roberts commented
Hope to see the print with highlight options and notes very soon. Great platform and enjoying using it.

We're currently in development preview releases for our 1.11 release, which should get wide release in the next week or two. Printing is currently scheduled for the release after this (a few months away at most). The bulk of the work is done, we're just polishing and testing.
It's only been 4.5 years right? You all have the patience of saints. (Except for Jessica and Greg below, but it's ok, we understand) :)
