Has anyone added printing capability to PDF docs recently?

Searching through the forums, I found some old posts about adding a print icon to a PDF screen. They are all 3-4 years old.

Before I start digging into this too deep, I was wondering if there are any updated ways to achieve this. I tried the "open in native app" button from the control panel, which adds the generic "share" icon on the bottom bar. But it appears greyed out and does nothing. (although this was in a simulator - wondering now if that has anything to do with it).

Thanks for any help!

Just compiled it to a real device (I still can't believe how easy Apple has made the whole auto-provisioning thing compared to the old old days, lol).

Still greyed out. Bummer.

I would recommend my Share Menu plugin as you can configure it to hold PDF attachments.

Here is how you could set it up:
1. If you know the url ahead of time, enter it into the Share Menu Plugin
2. Put a right navigation bar button with fade transition to the instance of the Share Menu plugin
3. You should see the print icon appear.

Does this help?

Thanks,

Jake

Ok, I set that up. I selected a few options, but only print shows up (no email link). Is there something else I need to do?

Is it possible that the file is too big / wrong file type to email?
