How do I print out a long table with many rows?

I have a long table in Power BI Desktop. How do I allow a user to print out whole table in Power BI?

In SSRS they would allow people to print large number of rows.

 

This table has around 100+ rows.

You cant view all 5000 row in one page anyway.

Yes, its a Power BI limitation.

 

However, the work around is to have paginated report which can be printed with many rows.

 

Thanks

In the right top coner of visual, you can see " focus mode" symbol, which helps to see the data in full page mode. Will that help you?

Using the extremely limited Export to PDF option... no 😕

You can view but you can't print. Why is this marked as solved? The question was how can we print, not how can we view. 

Anyways, In SSRS there is a option to view multiple rows, all paginated, so say 50 rows per page,  does Power BI have this option?

Did that Focus mode help you ? Thats the way to see full data in page mode as per my understanding.

Well When I export toCSV, it does not retain the formatting. How do I retain the formatting? colors, borders, etc

Currently do not see Focus menu on the top right elipses...
