I need to be able to have a button that allows a user to print a PDF.  I see there is an action in the buttons dialog for Print Form (PDF only section) but nothing happens when I apply that action to my button.

I know you can do a download (and print) using the exported bar at the bottom of the interface but that's for a single download for the whole magazine.  I have one for each page.  Any suggestions for getting a PDF to print.  Right now, I have the 1st page of the PDF as an MSO and have the print button in that window.  I've tried the google drive/lightbox option but it just says that google drive can't connect.  I really don't want users to open a new window since they will just get lost and never come back!  Thanks for any help.....Mimi

The Print action should work. Please try updating to the latest version to see if it fixes that issue:

However, using the Viewer Display (or simply linking to a PDF) will offer more control over how the document is printed.
