Works with Google Sheets, which disabled the following criteria:

  • Make a duplicate page
  • Print option
  • Copy option

Before getting into the details about the installation, basically, this extension opens a preview of that protected Google Sheet. You can use {Google Sheet}/preview to make this works, however, you don't need to remember the URL when using this extension. I am also planning to make it available on MIApps.


You can install the extension from here

How It Works

Now, Open the Google Sheet link and then use the extension to view the preview sheet. Copy the contents from the opened page and then paste that contents into a new Google Sheet to print from there.
