I have a "MASSIVE" web form that dynamically shows controls based on options in the application.
I can view the form in Design View in Visual Studio (2017) and it shows all the fields, I'd like to print that to make sure when I'm adding code to do calculations that I don't miss any. When I go to the File Menu, Print and Print Preview are greyed out.
Is there a way to print from design view?

Probably your best bet is to do a screen shot (or shots) and print that. You might be able to find a free trial of something that can grab a screen shot of all scrollable content to make it easier?

As Mike says, we couldn't print the design view by using VS file's print feature.
It could only print the source or code view.So if you want to print the design view, I suggest you could try to use windows snipping tool.
Or you could directly use Print screen key.
Select your window.
Ctrl +Shift + Print screen.
Ctrl+V to paste in.
Trim to just the bit you want.

Thanks all, that's what I ended up doing, it was a long form, so took 8 screenshots. (I didn't write the app originally, just maintaining it)
