Hi,

I did some tests and you're right, the print sheet action doesn't work in ajax (I Tested in Chrome, Firefox and IE). An alternative could be to use the print object or print report actions.

Also I noticed that print sheet action only works if you use IE-Plugin. I think it has to do with the interaction between QlikView/Browser and the printers,

Make sure that the print sheet action has checked the option "show print dialog" so you can choose which printer to use. Otherwise it will be sent to print to the default printer, which may not be convenient in all cases,

Print Report in AJAX mode on the web should work. Perhaps you have pop-ups disabled ? Can you right click on a chart object and export to PDF successfully?  Can you run PDF reports from the app in the web successfully?

Hi All,

Currently we are using IE Plug-in and QV version 12.3 in working environment, but few dashboards are heavy so we are trying AJAX instead of Plug-in as it faster when compared to, but facing issue in Printing sheet object(Print report is working fine). 

So tried this extension at document level.

Installed it on below path as suggested:

C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Document

and updated the path too on (PFA)

QMC -> System-> Setup -> Qlikviewserver-> folder 

After that too I am not able to see the print object on access point, though its coming on desktop.

Need help on this, am I missing some steps.
