After a recent upgrade from 4.7.29 to 5.2.1 (Joomla) I am experiencing the following problem:

After doing an Events/Find Participants search and selecting some or all participants, the "Print selected rows" option in no longer appearing in the Actions dropdown.

An Advanced Search when displaying results as Event Participants also is missing this option. The option does appear when results are displayed as Contacts.

I have verified the same behavior on dmaster.demo (running 5.4.alpha1).

  • Pradeep's patch has been merged for 5.3.0 (you can get a copy to test in download.civicrm.org/latest - it's in rc & will be released first Wed of July)

  • (note the regression occurred prior to 5.x so it is not recent enough to warrant a patch release - which is what we would do had it regressed in 5.1 or 5.2)

Checking on some older systems I have, it was present in 4.7.27 and not in 4.7.31 so it seems to have disappeared somewhere between 4.7.29 and 4.7.31. Please log an issue at https://lab.civicrm.org/dev/core/issues
