Mm, he did. And he didn't get an anwer that looked relevant to me, although I've been mistaken more than a few times before. :)
Print card certainly doesn't do anything in iOS. Pointers on how mergPop or any other method might help would be great.

Print Card works for me just fine in iOS printing to a PDF.... I am doing this in a Form Creation App that my workplace uses...

If you take a look at the mergExternals link I provided in the duplicate thread you will see that mergPop offers the following that seems to contain the ability to 'Print' (Its shown in the Picture)

command mergPopActivity [pText],[pImagePaths],[pURLs],[pRect]

Presents a modal view that you can use to offer various services from your application. The system provides several standard services, such as copying items to the pasteboard, posting content to social media sites, sending items via email or SMS, and more. This feature is available on iOS 6 only and will throw an error on other platforms. To use this feature your app must be comipled against the iOS 6 SDK or higher which means using LiveCode 5.5.3+ and Xcode 4.5 or higher.

Thanks - more experimentation needed, clearly! :)
One question: when you say "this feature is available on iOS 6 only" do you mean iOS 6 and above? If it's really iOS 6 only it's pointless even trying it! :( Sorry if it's just my misunderstanding, but it's what this particular phrase seems to imply
