Hide a command button when printing

I'm working on a word form(template) in which I'm adding rows to several different tables dynamically. At the top of each table is an "add row" button, which adds a row to that particular table. I do not want these buttons to print out. I've looked for solutions, but can't find one that is workable for me. I can't delete the buttons, because if the user re-opens the document to edit, they need to be available. What I'd like to do is hide the buttons only when printing, but make them visible again right afterwards. Anyone know how to do this?

First suggestion: Use a toolbar button or a macrobutton field instead.
Second option: Save the document. Delete the button. Print. Close the document without saving.
