I have created 20 forms with many required fields in each form. These are order forms that need to have all required fields filled in before a user can print or save the file. Currently, the Print Form button that is a standard component in the software allows users to save and/or print before they have filled in all required fields. I see that I should start with a regular button and write a code, but I'm not good with the code writing and I need to wrap this project up for my client. Can anyone offer a solution?

As noted you can use the pre-print and pre-save feature to alert a user about an incomplete form. You can also have a hidden form field become visible indicating the form is incomplete or use a watermak.

You can not prevent the print or save action, but can mark the form before printing or saving.
