Depending on which Interface you’re using or data included, the formatting when just printing straight from the browser will probably not be dependable.
You have the right idea of turning it into a PDF first. I use a Chrome extension called GoFullPage. It creates a full page screen capture, then it gives you the option to download it as a PDF and print. That way, it looks just like you see on your screen.
Here’s the Interface view:

I love AirTable but printing anything from it is quite a challenge… Page Designer is useful but not that easy to get a “nice and clean” look and it can’t print more than one page… Interfaces is good too but it seems rather complicated to get a simple report printed on PDF or printer pages…
What is the future for printing out reports from AT? Did anyone find a solution from a third party maybe? PowerBI ?? Other?? Tx…
If you want to automatically generate nice PDFs and/or print dashboards, views, reports, or documents with your data, check out the On2Air Documents app.
It integrates with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. You can create your own template, then the Actions app will automate a PDF and printable layout and will add it back to your Airtable base.
Here’s an example:
In this guide, we’ll show you how to create a Sales Contract in Google Docs and then turn it into a PDF using data from your Airtable base.
@Hannah_Wiginton I tried your suggested solution (GoFullPage) but it doesn’t work with interface designer page. It just takes a screenshot of what I see on the screen. On the other hand, it works perfectly with other sites. Im the only unlucky person?
I haven’t tried using it on an interface in a while, so I’m not sure.
If your interface is larger, maybe it struggles. I’ll test it out later.
