Open-Source PdfiumPrinter

For this to work will be needed one of the following libraries NuGet packages: bblanchon.PDFium.Win32 bblanchon.PDFiumV8.Win32


A small library for printing pdf files. This was adapted to netstandard from PdfiumViewer using Pdfium by google Also upgraded to latest version of pdfium.


	var printerName = "Microsoft Print to PDF"; //You can use your own printer;
	var printer = new PdfPrinter(printerName);
	var printFile = "somePdf.pdf"; //The path to the pdf which needs to be printed;

Additionally, you can specify the number of copies, or a stream for a pdf file.

Getting started

To install PdfiumPrinter, run the following command in the Package Manager Console:

PM> Install-Package PdfiumPrinter

or simply add a package reference in your csproj:

    <PackageReference Include="PdfiumPrinter" Version="1.4.1" />

Additionally, you'll have to install ONE of the following NuGet Packages(based on your needs): bblanchon.PDFium.Win32 bblanchon.PDFiumV8.Win32

Custom Library Loader

Alternatively, you may opt to bring your own runtime and implement a custom library loader. See https://github.com/sandrohanea/PdfiumPrinter/

You can load your own library (before loading any PDF) by:

    using PdfiumPrinter.LibraryLoader;


    NativeLibraryLoader.SetLibraryLoader(new MyCustomLoader());

    var printer = new PdfPrinter(printerName);


You can find the documentation and code samples here: https://github.com/sandrohanea/PdfiumPrinter/

Platform support

Even if the library can be loaded on a variaty of platforms: Windows X64, X86, ARM64, MacOS X64, MacOS Arm64, Linux X64, most of the operations are only supported on Windows.

This is because System.Drawing.Common is Windows Only

For other OS, you will be able to load a PDF, search in it, remove pages, add pages and even store a copy of it, but printing and rendering is using System.Drawing.Common

Additional work is needed to migrate the graphics to something different e.g. SkiaSharp which is cross-platform.
