A workaround could be (for text) (for photos or mixed with text i don't 
know for sure)

save text as a text file

launch the text file in a browser (we can laung a url or browser so also 
probably the url of the file where it is stored)

then in the browser press the 3 dots in the right upper corner

then press SHARE and you can print it.


If you have Opera browser installed, then there is an option to save the 
page as a PDF and you can also print

In FireFox you have to press PAGE and then you can choose save as PDF or 
PRINT

in Chrome i see no option to save as PDF.

Maybe you can save the whole as an html file with text and photos, then 
launch a browser, then save as pdf or print it.


I'm gonna try someting, for me it's just text to print with this project.

One advantage of Opera is it has standard unlimited VPN.


Doei,

Jerry
