​I would be incorrect if I said, I tried it out completely.
But the problem is for printing a specific stylesheet, I would have to
do a lot of changes(not that I am scared to do so).

The thing is one would get a print out like the one attached with just few
lines of JQuery
code i.e. making navigation, floating menubar and other extra things as
'display:none'. Example with just 4-5 changes to 'display:none' is attached
(done manually).

But the proper print of #tablelistcontainer would require some work because
would have to skip over the action links (ex. Browse, Structure etc.);
Shift the page_content ​towards center of page and try to accommodate all

So, since I had already started out on the method I mentioned in my first
mail on this
thread I thought let's go forward with it and if it does not work out, I
will work over the
stylesheet method.

I have submitted a PR[0] with that method, if it seems unsatisfactory, I
will try and work over this.

Also, I have expressed a doubt regarding the tbl_printview.php working for
mult_submits on the ticket[1].

Any suggestions/ comments over the PR and the doubt in [1] will be very
