Print button on Playbook

Is there a print button for WORD, Exel, PowerPoint To Go, etc.?  No where to be found.  What's up with that?

Re: Print button on Playbook

The Playbook as far as I know, has no port or drivers that can drive a printer.

 

Connect the Playbook to your computer. Open Win Explorer or the equivalent. Navigate to the folder in the Playbook that contains the file to be printed. Open the folder, and then open the file on the computer with whatever compatible program that will work for you. Print using the computer.

Re: Print button on Playbook

this would be great! if we can print from the playbook. it can use the same as Google Chrome's print cloud. some printers also have WiFi connection. would be great in the future as the playbook is great for school.

Speaking of Google Cloud Print. It is easy to set it upo and use it to print Gmail attachments. Works great too!

Re: Print button on Playbook

Thus far I have been getting around this by attaching the file to an e-mail and emailing it to my wireless printer.  That works.  Will this be addressed in future app updates?

Re: Print button on Playbook

Are there any articles that I can read that reveal any of the new OS2 features to be expected?
