Running vivado 2014.2 on win7. Have simulation running, would like to print out hardcopy of the waveform display. No apparent way to do that - no "normal" right click for that operation. But there is a file-->print menu item. When executing from there, it just prints blank pages. Anyone know how to do this?

I got the straight answer from the webcase system. There is no way to print waveforms from the vivado simulator. They admit it is a little embarassing to have a logic analyzer that can't print it's output and they are working on it, but no word when it might be implemented. The file->print action that causes zillions of blank pages to spew out is a bug, and that option is grayed out in 2014.3.
To make matters worse, the setup/configuration that allows you to select background colors for the wave display is broken. There is no way to change to a non-black background, so be prepared to either do further image processing or have gallons of toner on hand if you use the snipping tool to do a screen capture.

seems still to be broken more than two years after it was identified. Any timeline to have this feature in the tool?

And print screen isn't a good answer for waveforms that take more that one screen, Xilinx.

And indeed in 2017.2...
This is absurd! I remember printing simulation waveforms from PALASM from what seems like some time around the invention of the steam engine!
