Photoshop: Printing Artboards on separate pages

We do multiple web banners and love to create all the different sizes on there own artboard in the same file for consistency, the ease of coping elements from one size to another is great, This is one of Photoshops best updates in a long time. BUT REALLY, are we the only one that thinks having to create a PDF, open another program just to print them on there own pages is totally ridicules. Photoshop learn from Illustrator! They have been doing this forever. I want to create the artwork and then print and move on, you are making more work instead of helping reduce time and work load. Why in the world would you not allow the artboards to print individually? So instead of creating the artwork, print, approved and final files export, I have to jump through more hoops to get the job done. POOR thinking on your part.

Hi, I have started using artboards just recently and I am struggling with the same thing. Is there/will there be any solution for this?

Fully supported.  It is very strange that printng separate artboards has not been included from the start.  Please, Adobe: add add this in the next update!

Has there been any movement on this? I find the lack of option to do this very frustrating.

I don't believe they intended for artboards to be used for anything other than web/mobile, so being able to print artboards as pages will probably never happen...

this would be incredible. I do not use artboards  for this reason. I am a designer and I only use photoshop.

Totally agree with this.  I love being able to use artboards in my designs. But having to take extra steps to make them printable is frustrating. Please Photoshop coders.. make this a priority on your next update.

Even just working with web and mobile, I work for a company and I'm often asked to present my work printed just to check some features with the team and make notes ... being able to print artboards is a must!

It seems to work if you save the document. You get the option to save each artboard as its own image. Then you print that handful of images.

If you go to File > Export > artboards to files or Artboards to PDF you can convert the dartboards into a multi page document or individual files. Recently discovered this while trying to print a book I made in photoshop.

For test printing I found that it's such a pain to save over and over.... So in this case when you hide unwanted artboards in layers panel, it will only print the shown artboard(s)!
