    I'd love to print my cards for a quick pre-exam day overall review of Q&A. I think it'd be more convenient if you could add an option like "Print this Deck" that would elaborate a printable Q&A list distributed in two columns (similar to the simple editing cards mode). As a Premium user that would make me so happy! Happy New Year btw :)

    That's a great suggestion, Lluis. Hopefully we can incorporate more printing options in the future. Happy studying!

    I agree with Lluís. Being a Premium User and having no built-in feature to create a PDF and print easily is a real let down. Some students don't have access to phones or laptops at home, therefore, it limits their learning not being able to print easily for them to have access at home. Quizlet.com gives you print in 5 different formats in addition to creating a range of tests...

    Very interesting, Daniel. Thanks for this feedback. I'll definitely be sure to bring this up at our next development meeting to see if there's any updates that can be made on the short term to make a simple print option available soon!

    I used my browser's option to print the page after following your instructions here.  I chose not to print that, as it looked nowhere near organized or usable.  I'm not yet seeing a printer-friendly option for printing flash cards.  How soon will this be changing?

    The print function does not work.  I tried it in firefox which results in a very long list of the sites menus with the questions printed out with awful spacing.  This is not usable. 

    I like the site, but there needs to be a way to print the cards.  I guess I'll use the Edit cards screen and capture it to Evernote so I have it with me.

    Please fix this.

    I just tried to print this to Evernote and it doesn't work!  Wow all of this work and I cannot use these for notes for a class.

    I'm disappointed that as a pro user, I can't print off flash cards on to 3x5 or 4x6 cards.  Sometimes it's nice to have a paper copy, and I thought for sure I would have that feature with this program, as everything said you could print flashcards.  If I wanted a print out of facts, I'd just look at my notes.  It looks like this has been requested months ago.  You'd think there'd be some progress.

    Please make it so I can print any class. I don't understand why I would need admin privileges to print a deck for studying offline..

    fully agree with Will. I'm actually evaluating a flashcard solution. This thread about the pain for printing flashcards prevents me from further evaluation of brainscape. We are more and more surrounded with electronic devices, 7x24 hours. My best learning experiences are with taking a time without any distractions, beep and whistles, just with some paper printed flashcards. Therefore in today's live,  easy printing capabilities becomes more and more a key feature for learning software.

    There are two STRONG suggestions for Brainscape that i believe everyone would really, really, REALLY like to see in their profiles very soon, and they are:

    • CREATE a friendly printing tool for the website!! PLEASE
    • Anoher one, ADD the expert tool for the app on Ipad at LEAST, so we can add images to our flashcards from both the website and the app

    I promise we hear you, Antonio. We're currently doing some upgrades to the editor which is the first step in getting the ability to add images on mobile. This will hopefully improve the printer-friendly screens as well :) As I'm sure you know building new features takes time as we want to ensure we make releases as smooth as possible for all users and add to that we're still a relatively small team, but we're working on it!
