We really need a "convenient" way to print.  Some of us still like to create prints to hang on a wall.  While I know the printing is still available in "classic", to be able to move forward with Adode, an integrated print function needs to be added to Lightroom CC.

Do not forget  :
1) your assets are captive in "adobe's cloud". Your asset is adobe shareholding. 
2) Adobe creates. Adobe does not listen their customer. 

ON1 Raw will present sync capability starting 2020 with real open cloud...

No they're not. You can download them to a computer for a year after cancelling, either using the desktop app or the separate downloader tool, and you can keep a copy on your local computer storage while your subscription is active too.

If you prefer to use another tool, that's absolutely fine, but it's not fair to spread misinformation.

When I say "Your asset are captive" it is some kind of rhetoric.

BTW, can you explain why Adobe is not f***g capable to implement such a basic request (printing)?
Is it because everything is done to push you to let your asset intos closed cloud.
Maybe they are afraid people print and leave (?). Lol

Why do you think keyword are not sync between Mobile and classic. It is intentional to avoid people to use mobile to fetch tags and recover it using classic.

So yes, your asset are not captive. But you need to pay every month to develop. As a result your asset and development are virtually captive.

Thanks, some people are not blind and does not need Adobe to live.

I can use C1pro too.

Everything in life requires prioritization. I do support the request to add print and also to sync properly with Classic, but there's a lot of very valid requests and Adobe has to prioritize those requests. They may not prioritize the way you would like them to, but there's no conspiracy to it. There's just a finite amount of resources and a lot of things to do.

You are right. 

Ask them to stop paying marketing fee for useless name changing.
They will have time money and ressources to use native API to add such a function. Serious :)))

OK see you

Why don't you give us either the list of priorities (so we can see how long we have to wait for printing) or a date by which Adobe will implement printing?

Hum...

Probably because if you see some request / problem at the end of the list, you are aim to cancel your subscription. 

I imagine the frustration of the man how is in charge of create this snag list. 

To not forget, the list is probably huge. LR classic is an old piece of software. Mobile is brand new (2YO). And Adobe a really big and old company. Big dinosaur are strong but slow.

Don't forget the simple Acrobat Reader is a 500Mo piece of software only to open, print and fill formular.
Everytime you open Acrobat, a message prompt you something for you to accept (document preparation or I can't remember what) and you need to search internet how to disable this functionally in a very long setup menu. This functionality cost so much to users in lost time and Adobe don't care about.

So how do you want them to add a such complex feature.

They are not even able to create a proper import windows on Classic (Mac OS) without overlapping problem in GUI...

I'd love to, but they won't publish it because it changes constantly, based on feedback from users, operating system changes, things that other teams are working on, all sorts of things. But then, I'm sure your priorities change frequently too. That's just life.

The votes here are taken into account when prioritizing though, so the best thing you can do is vote on all the requests that matter to you.

Yet, printing has always been an essential part of top professional photo editing applications. Adobe is definitely pushing to go the CC route yet they omit this basic option? Priorities change...I get this. But the lack of printing option for long time users shows the priority is not the end user. I can see asking for some other type of non common feature but this should be a given. I cannot comprehend how Adobe does not get this. Say what you want about teams and our priorities changing but it is just defending a ridiculous omission.
The simple fact is Adobe decided to go this route with Lightroom a few years ago. At that time they obviously had the "resources" they needed to do this. That is the time they should have add a print module.

It's dumbfounding that there is no print function on Lightroom CC.  This is a very basic function.  It frustrating that this isn't mentioned on any of the product page or in the tutorials.

And also that there is no facial recognition on Classic.

Yeah, marketing pages aren't known for listing the things they don't do. There is face recognition in Classic.

Just like everyone else, I understand that Lightroom CC is a cloud backed asset (image) management software but I cannot understand Adobe's push to Creative Cloud, if the cloud apps are going to be so limited.  It has taken me a while to move from Lightroom Classic to Creative Cloud and I'm starting to get use to the interface.  Not having a simple print facility is beyond me.  I use to love going into Lightroom Classic and print 1 or more photo's per A4 page knowing that the images would be correct size on the paper ie. printing an 8x10 on an A4 page.  I was really hoping that Lightroom CC was going to replace flickr.com for web-storage and nicely integrate my mobile photos with my camera photos into one spot but that opinion is being shattered.

Please can you get this feature added. The syncing features of lightroom don't seem to exist anywhere else and are fantastic - my wife and I can each take photos, have them automatically sync to the cloud, and then edit / organise them once anywhere on phone, ipad, laptop, Mac. This isn't "pro" use, just family with lots of photos like everyone these days. But as well as using print services we also like to print our own photos at home. How is it possible that this isn't built in? Given how well this works I don't really want to have to ditch the whole thing and try to move to some other cloud storage and photo application just to simply the things like printing
