Hi  @tdcrow ‌ ~

Printing quizzes can be a "messy" process. When you print from the browser, I know that the quiz can be broken in strange places. My colleagues and I have also tried the copy/paste method. It's time-consuming, and the formatting isn't always consistent. It works, but you definitely have to plan ahead. I also have some colleagues who write all of their questions in a Google Doc and then copy/paste them into Canvas Question Banks. That way, they have the original quiz elsewhere and it's easy to print.

If you are the Canvas Admin, or you have the ability to collaborate with them, my school has had luck with this wonderful resource that  @chadscott  shared in Print Canvas Quizzes UserScript‌. We've absolutely loved having this option, especially when we need paper tests/quizzes for students who have accommodations or simply as a back-up.
