    Bad idea! Write google script to print online form. Applicant requires the form and not the server.

      Thanks Dinesh. That will be included in the next revision of this article. This is just workaround :)

          Hello Nate, this is not a script but workaround how to print using Microsoft Word. There are also ways to print forms using scripts – you may find them on Internet.

    found this article after a few days of searching.

    Have to say I was a little nervous with the idea of having to merge two different files, but WOW, this is exactly what I needed to print, INDIVIDUAL forms for my students. Each student will get a form now that gives effective feedback about their final project.

    To be honest, I kinda like this a bit more than Google’s Add-On’s…definetly not hard to setup at all!

    Thank you so much Milan!

      Hi. I use all the tools that I could potentially use in Microsoft Word, depending on how I want the form to appear: shapes, lines, page breaks. If you use Word 2013, go to the DESIGN tab and you will see the available options.

    On the one hand, yes, from a technology standpoint, this does work. And, it works well. From a business process standpoint, it’s a train wreck. I implemented this workaround to automate a process in my office. I trained my staff to complete the mail merge in Word, PDF a document, then send back to the customer for their records. The result was very unhappy customers who complained about not having the ability to print their own hard copy of a form. It was a disaster.

    Google, for the love of all that is effective and efficient, give us the ability to print forms. Business professionals use forms. If we wanted surveys, we’d use survey monkey. Give us forms!

    Thanks for trying to address this maddening shortcoming from google. Can you please detail what you mean in step 1, ” Using Microsoft Word, design the outlook of the Google Form as offline version.” Are you saying create a table? Everything else is clear. Thanks

      Not neccessarily creating a table, but to try to make the form in Word to look according your needs. Write a question, then insert line or draw a box for a long answer. You got it.

    Thank you. That helped a lot. It still took me quite some time to add every field of my long questionaire, but it is the best solution I found.
    There are addons for google forms which state to help you print out each answer individually, but I did not install them because I was not willing to give them all kind of rights (like reading all my emails and contact, writing emails in my name…) why do they need that??!
    Anyway.
    Thanks for great article, and especially for the screenshots! Helped a lot!

    Thanks for all the details. I have collected individuals’ photograph also as jpg file upload in my google forms. The photos are stored in a separate folder in my google drive and a link to the same is provided in the form as a separate field. I want to print the photograph also but I get only the link printed. Is there any way to print the photograph also.
