Can't print from google docs

When my dad tries printing from google docs it doesn't print, but if he exports it as a pdf it prints fine. Any ideas why? Note: I think he has only tried it in google chrome if that can affect anything.

hdw632--I assume your dad is using Windows as operating system.
If this problem is something recent, try a System Restore to a date before the problem started.

hdw632--You may have to be satisfied with the "export and print" procedure unless you want to uninstall and install the successor to Google Docs, Google Drive

As Google Docs/Drive runs from a website in the browser, try printing any other webpage in Chrome to see if it is something with the browser instead of Google Docs.
