Why is the comments field when printing Google maps no longer printing?
3
Normally, when I print a map, I can add comments at the top of the map before I print. It normally allows me to add as many lines as I need and then I usually select the text and type Ctrl B to make it bold. This field would then print above the map. Suddenly, last Friday it not only stopped allowing me to add multiple lines of text and then bold them, but even with only one line of text, when I press print, no comments show up. They just disappear. Anyone know what may have caused this change?

Hi there,

Just to clarify, are you trying to print your Google Maps screen or a custom Google My Map?

If you're referring to Google Maps, then yes, it appears that comments that are entered in the "You can enter your notes here" text box are not shown when the print button is pressed:





I will try to escalate this to ask if this change is intentional.

Thank you.

Hi! Thanks for you reply. I am trying to print the screen in regular Google Maps not in My Maps. It was working as I described in the op but suddenly and inexplicably stopped. If one right-clicks to print or keystrokes Ctrl-P to print, the print window has a field to add a comment. This field still appears but now it won’t print even just the one line it allows me to enter. 

I don’t know if this sudden change is on the Google side or a local network issue. I checked with my IT department but they do t have an answer for me yet.

We are having the same issue here. I am told by my users that was working correctly on Friday 11/20/2020, but not exactly sure when it stopped working. We are using the regular Maps window, not My Maps, and doesn't seem to matter which browser, the notes just aren't on the printed map.

There must be a technical problem in Google Map
