    • Do you have a sample page where this happens to you by chance?

    • Yes - pleaselook at those 2 jsfiddle links.
      I had to use @import instead of @font-face:

      In the following jsfiddle I load the font outside of the @media print decleration and if I try to print the page in Edge you will see the font applied to the page:

      In the next jsfiddle, I load the font inside of the @media print decleration and when I try to print the page, I see that the font is not applied (and in the Network section you can see that the font isn’t being loaded):

    • Thank you for your bug report. Unfortunately I don’t think we should fix this issue. I understand the use case, but given there are plenty of workarounds available, fixing this issue just isn’t worth the added complexity to the platform. Thanks for your understanding, Francois.
